WHAT'S THE PLAN NOW? "We're gonna run the other car because there's enough damage to the primary car that it would be tough to fix. These things are so aero sensitive that even though we might be able to fix it, you won't get it back right and that could make for a real long day. We'll see what we've got with this and see if we can get it as close as we can."

HOW HAS THIS CAR PERFORMED PREVIOUSLY? "It's a good car. We've run it a bunch, but we have some better ones built and were running some better ones. We haven't had much luck here lately, so most of our newer and good stuff is tore up."

WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION WHEN YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED? "It wouldn't be so bad if it was just racing, but when somebody is trying to come on pit road and they're not on the bottom and they turn into you, it's pretty sad."
