RICKY STENHOUSE JR. – No. 6 Blackwell Angus Ford Mustang (Finished 14th)

“For some reason we weren’t getting very good fuel mileage compared to everybody else. Our Roush Yates Ford has a lot of power. I don’t know if we just miscalculated the fuel mileage or what, but this Blackwell Angus Beef Mustang was really, really fast and I think we had a shot at Kyle there. I was just kind of running around and learning from him at the beginning of the race. Then we had to come back down for a pass through for starting in the wrong spot. I didn’t know where we were supposed to start. They told me we were behind the 34, so it was just a bad day all the way around.”

TREVOR BAYNE – No. 16 Roush Fenway Ford Mustang (Finished 19th)

“The first deal just got us behind. That put us into a situation to have disaster strike. When you’re at Bristol, any mistake is crucial. It’s gonna be critical not to have those kind of things happen. We lost that tire and got us back in the field. We were already back up to 15th like it was nothing. The car was so fast, and then somebody blows up in front of us and we hit the oil and go sliding and hit the wall. Luckily, we didn’t kill the car or else it would have been a terrible points day. We were able to fix it up to where it was pretty decent and were one or two laps down and then when I came down pit road the caution came out and we lost two more laps. It was that battle all day of bad things happening to us, but we’ll have these kind of days. Hopefully, we don’t have many of them because that’s not good for our points and it’s not good for running for that championship, but to finish 19th we’ll take it and move on to the next one.”

CARL EDWARDS – No. 60 Scotts EZ Seed Ford Mustang (Finished 7th)

“We salvaged something there. The 22 car had a flat tire and stopped on the race track to get the yellow flag and that ruined the whole deal for everybody who had pitted already. We’ll go race tomorrow. I learned a lot today, so tomorrow is gonna be good.”
