Chevrolet NASCAR NEXTEL Cup - Lap 1 accident quotes
Atlanta Motor Speedway

Jeff Gordon
No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet

WHAT HAPPENED? Well, we're trying to figure it out. There was some contact with the #41 and a couple of other guys, you know-turned sideways and once that happened, just caused a big wreck. I thought I was going to get through there. I saw smoke but then they all turned down in front of me. Unfortunately, a short day for the DuPont Chevrolet and a lot of other guys. I'd like to see a few more angles and go back back a little bit further and see how it all started. I'm not exactly sure what went on there. But we're going to fix it as best we can and get out there. It's not going to be a fun day but it's going to be a long one.

HOW BAD IS THAT CAR? You know, mainly just body damage. But, you know, I think we'll actually have a pretty decent car when we get back out there. The problem is red flag right now-we cant' work on it. And by the time we do get back out there, we're going to be so many laps down. I guess we'll just be racing the guys that do have damage.

WHAT HAPPENED? Well, you know, like I said I just don't know. I watched a little bit of it on TV, there. You know, a couple of guys already got into two guys. Two cars got into two other cars off of Turn 2. It's 500 miles. That's all I can say. It's 500 miles, not one lap.
