Notes and Quotes from Phoenix Cup Race 3/8/2020

JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Mustang -- Finished 1st

WHAT DID YOU LEARN TODAY THAT YOU COULD TAKE INTO NOVEMBER BY WINNING THIS RACE, THE PERFORMANCE YOU HAD, BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS GOING TO BE WON? “You think I'm going to tell you that (laughter)? Definitely, everybody learned something out there today just whether it's racing, the way this traction compound is, the awesome sauce up there, how that worked out, played throughout the race.  There's a lot learned, for sure. We learned that this No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford team is just stout and is not going to get beat if we have the opportunity.  We tried everything we could to regain our track position and get control back of the race.  I knew that last restart was going to be crazy. I have to thank my partners, Moneyline, Auto Trader, AAA, Ford, Coca‑Cola, Snap‑on, everybody that helps this program at Team Penske.  Roush‑Yates motors.  It was cool to see two Fords on the front row at the end of a race like that.  This is a motor racetrack as much as we don't think it is. Proud of the team effort today to make this one come.”

“Heck yeah man, that’s awesome. So proud of our guys. ll we’ve heard is we can’t do it, we can’t do it, we’ll never do what last year’s  20 did . We’re off to a good start. It’s awesome, it feels so good to win. There’s times when you go through a little bit of a drought and just doubt  yourself.

Las Vegas Weekend - Ford Quotes and Notes

JOEY LOGANO, No. 22 Pennzoil Ford Mustang – VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW – WHAT ABOUT THE LAST PART OF THE RACE, WHETHER TO PIT OR NOT.  “There was a little confusion, but it worked out really well.  A lot of cars stayed out and that was key to that move.  Winning the Pennzoil 400 with the Pennzoil car, this is huge.  It means a lot to be able to do this two years in a row winning this race.  I’m proud of the effort everybody here behind me did today.  They prepared a great car and executed the race perfectly and that’s what we wanted.  We fought hard and tried to keep every spot we possibly could and then ultimately, oh man, being able to pull it into Victory Lane here.”

TAKE US THROUGH THAT CRAZY STRATEGY.
“I’m not really sure. We had all different kinds of strategy today. One of them back-fired on us and the other one paid off for us when the caution came out. All-in-all, I’m really happy with the way it turned out for our guys. We got track position, we lost it and we got it back there at the end with that caution, and stayed up there, which was nice. It wasn’t perfect, but we got some good points out of it, got a top-five finish out of it, and we’ll continue to learn what we need to work on with these cars to get better each week.”

TOYOTA QUOTES

“We had a good day. We fought back from a lot of adversity. We got damage. My team did a good job repairing it. We kind of still couldn’t poke through the hole like we needed too, but the 66 (Timmy Hill) got lined up behind me. Noah (Gragson) got out front about a car and a half and I thought ‘He might be in trouble here’, but then the caution came out. Just really proud of our guys. We had a tough day. I think that there were a couple times in the race that we were down and out, and our guys clawed it out. I was proud of that effort.”

Ford Performance NASCAR: Daytona 500 Media Day (Ryan Blaney)

WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, IS THERE A CERTAIN KIND OF TRACK THAT YOU WANT TO SEE ON THE SCHEDULE IN THE FUTURE? “I think there are a  couple tracks that have come up over the past couple of years that I wish we could go to. The Nashville thing was unfortunate that it hasn’t gotten any more traction than it has. I know a lot of people wanted that. One or two more road courses I thought would be pretty neat. People talk about street courses and things like that. That is tough. There are plenty of really great road courses out there. Some of the tracks like short tracks, that is a given. You have to think realistically of what a NASCAR race can  hold. If you go to South Boston, it is a great race track but you would have to do a lot of work to hold the NASCAR fan base there for a Cup race. It can be done, but can it be done for next year? I don't think so. It might be years down the road. I wish the Nashville Fairgrounds would have happened. That was a really exciting one and a good fan base. I wouldn’t count that one out yet though.”

HOW ARE YOU FEELING TO START THE SEASON? EXCITED TO GET GOING? “Yeah, definitely. It is always nice to come back down and know that it is time to go again and get back into a rhythm and swing of things. The off-season went quicker than normal this year it seemed like. But it is all good. I got one or two of my 15 or 20 projects done. Getting back down here, it is time to go back racing. Time to refocus and get going with a new team, being back at Roush Fenway but with a handful of new people there. With Luke being a new crew chief, just a lot of relationships I am trying to build and get used to everybody and get communication working as best as possible before you get on the race track and then build it from there."

DID THE KOBE BRYANT TRAGEDY MAKE YOU RETHINK PRIVATE PLANS AND HELICOPTER TRAVEL THAT SO MANY ATHLETES USE NOWADAYS? “You know, life always gives us reminders and it is up to us to learn from them and pay attention to them or ignore them. It is unfortunate and very, very sad on so many levels. The sad thing is that those things happen all the time but it takes a superstar like Kobe for us to realize it and wake up. But again, it rings home when you are in a profession when you are constantly traveling, taking off and touching down almost daily sometimes. It definitely hits home and makes you think and appreciate every touchdown.”

Toyota Racing Daytona 500 Media Day Quotes - Kyle Busch

KYLE BUSCH, No.18 M&M’s Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing 

Could you just talk a little bit about your relationship with Joe Gibbs and what you thought of when you first knew the possibility existed that you could be one of his drivers?

"Just trying to remember. It's a long time ago. Obviously just, I guess, we kind of went on the race shop tour, if you will, and went to go talk to everybody, but being able to talk to Joe was certainly very high on the list, and getting over there and being a part of Joe Gibbs Racing, being with Tony Stewart, being with Denny Hamlin and having an opportunity to work with those guys and the success that they've already had, and knowing that they're a top‑flight organization, that was one of the highlights for me, but then just to be able to sit down with Joe and really talk with Joe firsthand, lay it all out there on the table, I'm not perfect, I made plenty of mistakes, this is kind of who I am, but obviously there's a lot for me to learn and I could definitely lean on him for a lot of that guidance, and that's what I've done over the course of my career, and he's been there with me and for me every step of the way. We've kind of had this bond, this relationship that he and I have had the utmost respect for one another, and it's turned into this."

What is it like to have that big spoiler?

“Well, I don't have a ton of experience with it. We've got into, like, a little six‑car draft. I'll be honest, I have not slipped one time yet. Grip does not seem to be an issue yet. I'm sure that will change whenever we get 40 of us out there. It's definitely a lot different than what I've had in the past.”

I think that variety, based upon everything that we have heard and you guys have heard, I don't think there is any limit on that.

ERIK JONES, No. 20 Sport Clips Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing

Finishing Position: 1st

How would you  describe this day?

“Well, not what I would’ve thought we’d want. It was an awesome race. I’ve got to give a huge thanks to Denny (Hamlin) there in the 11. He stuck with us there that whole last lap. This thing wasn’t the fastest car, I don’t think, left in the race, but we brought it home. I owe him one for that one for sure. Really cool though. I mean Busch Clash first year back, to win that, that feels good and with SportClips again. These guys have been really loyal to me the last few years, so it’s cool to get them another win and hopefully next Sunday, we cap off another one right here.”

Ford Notes and quotes After the Busch Clash

RYAN NEWMAN, No. 6 Koch Industries Ford Mustang - Finished 5th 

“I am proud of the effort that went into it. We had a good Koch Industries Ford. We had good speed and the car drove good. The strategy was good. We just didn’t have the alliance at the end to get that push. I blocked the 3 car but I didn’t see or know that Denny had the 20 lined up and a freight train coming on the outside. I knocked a left rear tire in blocking Austin. It was just unfortunate the way the timing worked out. I feel bad about the deal on the restart. There must have been oil or something on the track for all of us to do what we did there. Nevertheless we crashed and looked kind of stupid coming to the green. I guess that happens. It wasn’t the peak of stupidity today though, that is for sure.”

ERIK JONES, No. 20 Craftsman Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing

Starting Position: 15th

What’s your outlook for Sunday’s race?

“I don’t know, I thought we had a little bit better car than that, but I didn’t expect us to qualify much better than eighth probably. You know 15th is not where we wanted to be, we haven’t qualified well all year. It hurts pit stall more than anything and then you get some guys up in front that you’ve got to through in the first stage, get them shuffled out. We just lacked a little bit of speed obviously across the board - us the 18 (Kyle Busch), the 19 (Martin Truex Jr.) were able to squeeze in (to the next round). You know definitely needed a little bit more speed to be with those guys in the top five, I mean they’re a second faster than us almost. That’s a lot, but you never know how the race will play out.”

POLE WINNER WILLIAM BYRON

Yeah, we’re going to have to fix a quarter-panel. I kind of missed that one, but I was trying to get all I could. I knew I was a little bit weak under the brakes the first couple of runs in Q-trim today, so I tried to fix it and maybe fixed it a little bit too good. But, the guys did a great job with this car and it really takes every corner around this race track to get a pole. I knew we could qualify Top 5, but I really wanted the pole and really kind of went out there and got it. So, I’m really proud of this UniFirst team, it’s going to be great to start up front.”

KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Combos Toyota Supra, Joe Gibbs Racing

Finishing Position: 1st 

How were you able to overcome both tight and loose conditions in the car to win?

“We just didn’t have the grip in traffic. Our car was really, really fast in a straight line and could  pass some of those guys down the straightaways. Even if I botched the corner, it seemed like I  could pass them back. Different situations with some of those guys. The 7 (Justin Allgaier)  was really good. He was really smart and played a great race. We were just faster and fast enough there at the end in order to make sure that we stayed in front of those guys. Real proud of the effort and certainly want to thank Big Machine Vodka, Big Machine Label Group for being on my stuff there and  partnering with the track here this weekend. Also want to thank the fans,  apprecaite their support. Of course this Combo’s Supra – these guys and everybody on this team did a great job. It’s pretty cool  to win here in Indy any time. We’ll  take it.”
