Quotes from Jeff Gordon and Bobby Labonte
Dover International Speedway
Jeff Gordon - #24 DuPont Chevrolet
Note: Gordon had an accident on Lap 41. The team is currently repairing the car in the garage.
WHAT HAPPENED? Well, we didn't take off too good on the restart. Tony was a little bit better than me and, you know, there's no doubt I was holding him up and I wanted to see if my car would come to me, and he just ran out of patience. I just think it's a little uncalled for to start something that fast. I probably would have let him go once we got out there; it's a long race. All I can say that the next time Tony's holding me up, it won't be very long for him to be out of my way.
Bobby Labonte - #18 Interstate Batteries Chevrolet
Note: Labonte came to the garage during Lap 51 with engine problems
I looked under the hood, all the belts are gone off the front of the motor. I don't know if something happened to the motor. I think the belts came off. Something happened. Ultimately, it was an untimely engine failure. That's just our luck.
