More Memorable Words

“Martinsville isn’t the nicest track to make my introduction to Cup, but it’s got to happen sometime.” — Scott Speed

“The field is not separated as much as it used to be. When the entire field is separated by two tenths, it’s really, really hard to pass. You have to be so much better than the competition to be able to drive back through there. You can get through the first 10 or 15 cars, but it starts getting harder and harder. It’s the small things — pit stops, working lines whenever the line changes, managing tires. You can’t make any small mistakes.” — Crew chief Jimmy Elledge

“When you’re on the cusp of being in the Chase, there’s a lot of pressure there. I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself or the team. We are a second-year team with a second-year manufacturer, so the fact that we’re even in contention for the Chase is fantastic.” — Brian Vickers before Chicago

“I felt a bomb explode. It didn’t cut. It didn’t go flat. It just exploded.” — Brian Vickers on the blowout at Talladega

“Menu planning actually goes on in the stores. You get to these race towns where it’s just chaos, and they can be completely out of certain items — a protein, chicken breasts — so menu planning happens very spontaneously.” — Cliff Cameron, team chef
