Dale Earnhardt, Jr. accident quotes
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. -- #8 Budweiser Chevrolet
Note: Accident on Lap 62 restart.
WHAT HAPPENED OUT THERE? Everybody took off and then everbody stopped and when I stopped I got ran into. It's hard to see when you're way back in the back-you know, what the leaders are doing. But, they called the green flag and I was waiting for Bill to go and when Bill took off, I took off and we stopped again. I don't think Skinner knew what was going on, or whoever took off behind me. I think it was Skinner. I got turned into the wall. I don't know. My spotter said the leader checked on the restart, but I don't know. I didn't see anything.
THIS IS A BLOW TO YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP CHASE, ISN'T IT? Man, I just hope I don't have to get into that (race car) today. Hopefully I can go home.
BUT ISN'T THIS A BLOW TO THE POINTS YOU WERE TRYING TO GET TODAY? Yeah, obviously. That's life. You've got to deal with it-good and bad. We'll be alright. I mean, if we make the Chase, we make it. If we don't, we don't. We'll still try to win some races before the year is out.
