  • “I think for now we’re still content. It is … a ball-and-strike call. We’ve got the ability to go back and look at video, which we do, and in this case made the call and moved on from it. It’s still one that we want to leave in the drivers’ hands. If we have to get involved and make those calls with more video, I think we’ll do that, but we’d still like to see it play out the way it does through the final 10. It’s one of those areas that any advantage that a team can try to get on a restart, they’re going to try to do that and put a call in our hands, but that’s our job to make the call during the race.”
  • "First, we start with conversations with the driver, spotter and the crew chief immediately following the race. What happened, where was the breakdown in communication and see what we can learn from there. Obviously, we got all the video to go through and then for every race that we have, Monday and Tuesday we go through each of the calls for a race. Evaluate what happened, what were the circumstances. We've got training that goes into this prior to the race where we meet with all the track safety and cleanup workers. We do that every morning as well when they're at the track. We'll debrief with those folks as well and see what they saw and look to not have that happen in the future."
