Ford teams Darlington race quotes

Darlington Raceway 200

CARL EDWARDS – No. 60 Ford. Drive One. Ford Mustang

“We had a really fast race car, but they were all wrecking. I thought I had it missed and I just got caught in the right-rear. I tried my hardest to miss that, but there was nothing we could do. We got lucky it wasn’t torn up worse, and I thought we were still gonna end up with a top 10, but there was just nothing I could do about it. I blew the right-front or something and hit the fence again, but the guys did a good job.”

RICKY STENHOUSE, JR. – No. 6 Ford Mustang

“I would assess the night, overall, looking at the whole race, we were really good. I felt like we had a top four car and was trying to get by the 31 and got a little bit tight and got in the fence. I just got too tight to stay up there with him and ended up 10th. It was a mistake on my part. We had a really fast Mustang all weekend and I was really hoping to come away with a top five, but I want to thank Nationwide Insurance for putting on this series. We enjoy racing here and the competition is tough. We’ll get out of here with a top 10 and go on next week to Dover, which I think we’ve got a really good setup for our Mustang. It’s a bummer that we finished 10th, but we know we had a better car and we’ve been running better.”

“It was a real good Darlington experience.

CHRIS BUESCHER – No. 16 Roush Fenway Ford Mustang

“It was a real good Darlington experience. I’ve got thank Mr. Roush for letting us stay out there and get those extra laps. We’re not running for points and this costs a lot of money, but it was a real good experience. I learned a ton. I really love this race track. I know it’s hard to pass and it’s tight and patience plays a big thing, but it was a real fun race."

WHAT PUT YOU IN THE WALL? “We were on the outside of someone and they drove in a little bit too deep and we got caught up in their mess, but thanks to Ford for their help to keep going. I know Trevor was probably watching today and cringed a little bit when the car got torn up, but I hope he feels better.”
