Johnny Benson Quotes On New Hampshire International Speedway. Benson is 16th in NASCAR Winston Cup Owner Points and led 10 laps at Daytona Saturday night before finishing 13th

"New Hampshire is so narrow that there isn't a lot of room to pass and that makes for some interesting racing. Tempers can be short there because you have a lot of cars fighting for very little room on a narrow slick track. Sometimes you can get into someone and turn them and not even mean to. The post race discussions are always fun at New Hampshire"

"Obviously, New Hampshire is a flat track and the turns are pretty similar on both ends. For a fast lap you better drive the car right up to the wall off turn two and off turn four. The whole key there is getting enough grip where you can stay low going through the middle of the corners. That's especially true in qualifying. The guy who wins the pole will be the guy who can stay low in the middle at both ends of the track. You tend to slide up the track at both ends."
