dbp:quote
  • "Sometimes what happens when thieves see trailers, they might just assume there's something in the trailer they can go off and sell. Sometimes when things like this occur, they will drop off the items in a parking lot somewhere – like a Walmart parking lot – once they realize what they have. They'll open it up and say, 'Oh my God, this is not what we thought it was. Let's get out of here.' And they'll take off and leave it sitting there. We're hoping that will be the situation so he can get back to his races this weekend, because they drove quite a distance to participate."
  • "It wouldn't have been too bad, but I found that one spot where there is no SAFER barrier. I can't believe it. That's amazing to me. Anyway. Hopefully now that will get fixed. I don't think we can say anymore after Kyle's incident in Daytona. Everybody knows they've got to do something and it should have been done a long time ago, but all we can do now is hope they can do it as fast as they possibly can and get it done. I knew it was a hard hit; I didn't expect it to be that hard. I got out and I looked and I was like, 'Oh, big surprise, I found the one wall here on the back straightaway that doesn't have a SAFER barrier'."
  • "When you have this many teams having issues going through, there's something wrong with this system or something wrong with the amount of time they allotted to get through. There's no way with this many good cars and talented people that they can't figure out how to get these cars through inspection. These guys are too smart and yeah, we're pushing limits, but there's something wrong here. It's ridiculous. The fans, they deserve an apology. I don't know how many cars are still back here that never got the chance to get on the track. I know we went through twice. When you have this many? I've seen five or six, maybe ten cars that have issues going with certain little things. But this many cars that didn't go? That's not on these teams. They deserve better than this, I can't believe how disappointing this is."
