CLINT BOWYER, No. 14 Haas Automation/ITsavvy Ford Mustang: (Retired on Lap 130 after accident)
WHAT HAPPENED? "The 20 got loose and I tried to basically make an evasive move to get under him. The 3 was there and got loose under him and then I got into him and ran out of real estate. It was a pretty frustrating day. Pretty frustrating out there."
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE RACING TODAY? "It was pretty much what I expected."
REALLY FRUSTRATING FOR YOU: "Yeah, frustrating for all of us. It just wasn’t out day. The 20 got loose and I tried to move down to not hit him and then I got loose with the 3 underneath of me and got into the 20 and got wrecked."
HOW FRUSTRATING IS THE RACING? "I mean, it is not racing. I am sorry, I am biting my tongue. I have never been penalized for trying to make a pass in my whole life since I was four years old. You get a run on somebody and you can make a complete pass and by the time you get to the next corner you have been passed by four people. It is really, really frustrating."
IS THERE ANYTHING THE DRIVER CAN DO TO TRY TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE UP? "It is all situational and all comes down to what call you make and when you make it and when you make it and how your track position plays out for stage points and then how your luck plays out from there."
