Fontana

CARL EDWARDS – No. 99 Scotts Ford Fusion (Finished 6TH)

“What an exciting race. I am really excited for these great fans you know to be able to see that wild of a finish at this race track which is one of the best race tracks we go to. For our Aflac team to come out of here leading the points is big considering how we ran all day. We really weren’t that good. Congrats to those guys that battled up front. They put on a good show and we will just go to Martinsville now.”

GREG BIFFLE – No. 16 3M Ford Fusion (Finished 11TH)

“It was a pretty good day considering where we qualified and how the car drove most of the day. We really came back. Our car was turning and really loose and felt like it was cutting off the left front too much at the end. That is why I lost all that track position. We came back and put two on and got back to 11th. I would have had Montoya at the end there but the 88 was inside me.”

MATT KENSETH, No. 17 Crown Royal Ford Fusion (Finished 4TH)

“The last two weeks Jimmy and these guys have made some great adjustments and had our Crown Royal Ford the best it has been all day at the end of the race which is important. It is a good day for us. You are always greedy and want more. I was the first guy on tires and I didn’t do probably as good a job as I needed to on the restart. It just took awhile to get there.”

TREVOR BAYNE – No. 21 Motorcraft Ford Fusion (Finished 30TH)

“Today was a long day. From the first lap to the last lap we were tight the whole time, sliding the nose through the center of the corner and all the way off. I couldn’t get the gas down and that cost us a lot of speed and a lot of position. Those tires seemed to bite us the last two weeks in a row with being tight.”

YOU HIT THE WALL EARLY, WAS IT THE SAME DEAL AS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT? “It was the same deal. We took off tight and I didn’t expect it to give out like that. You could lean on it and lean on it and then it just felt like just take off. That is what happened at the beginning there.”
