WHAT WERE THE ISSUES YOU GUYS HAD GOING ON THAT SET YOU BACK?
“We had a brake line issue. It wasn’t broken. It’s not like I hit anything or something came into it and broke it that we can see. Something went bad with the line and it started leaking fluid and we started losing brakes. So we had to come in. Unfortunately, it took us four laps to get that changed. Just so hard to make up laps when you get that many down, especially at a track like this. We were okay at the beginning we weren’t great. It’s a long race, a lot can happen, but you have to be on the lead lap and we weren’t.”
HOW DISAPPOINTING IS THIS?
“Well it’s disappointing, but I mean right now I just feel like we can’t afford to have these kinds of finishes if we are going to make the Chase. I have no idea where we are right now in points or how all that worked out, but just when you think you get something that is going to go your way and something like this happens. We just keep fighting and digging and try to get the finishes that we need to get ourselves solidly in there.”
WHAT DO YOU FEEL YOU CAN IMPROVE ON AS WE GO THROUGH THE NEXT FOUR RACES?
“We need to improve slightly performance wise, but I think our performance is not bad. Right now it is the unknown. It is the concerns of freak things happening like what happened to us at Indy, what happened to us here. Those are things out of your control. We are all about the things you can control and from that standpoint we are just trying to improve the performance of the car slightly. We are not far off though.”
