Kansas Dodge teams race quotes

RYAN NEWMAN (No. 12 alltel Dodge Charger)
“We dropped a cylinder there just a little bit after the rain delay. Then it went all together there at the end. It’s just unfortunate. The Alltel Dodge was definitely fast. I had a fast car. I could hold my own in the corner; actually I was gaining about four lengths in the corners and losing about six on each straightaway. Eventually it expired, so it’s unfortunate for the Alltel Dodge.”

KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger)

“I thought we had a really fast racecar, it just didn’t pan out on the fuel strategy. Around half way when the rain came out, what it did is it took all the guys that were about 15th to 25th and put them up front, and we just got into Tony (Stewart) when he had a flat tire. That took our chances away at coming up through the pack. Eleventh is alright.”

KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger)

“The car was good all day. We had the problem and had to make an unscheduled pit stop which got us a lap down, but we were able to make that up. Fortunately, we were able to come back after the long delay and run more laps. Actually, we would have preferred to run more laps because we were one of the fastest cars on the track at the end. It’s good to see the two Dodge Dealer cars in the top 10 and competitive. We need to get the front end of our Charger a little better, but we’re making progress and it showed today. Kenny (Francis, team director) and the crew will work on the front end the next couple of weeks, but I think we’ve got a good car to take to Charlotte.”
