Dodge Motorsports PR Phoenix Int’l Raceway BASHAS’ 200 Post-Race Quotes NASCAR Nationwide Series
BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T) “Just a tough break for this Discount Tire Dodge. I’m not sure exactly what happened, all that I know is that we blew up a right-front tire and I ended up throwing the car into the Turn 4 wall. We had a decent race car, but not exactly what we needed here today to win a race. We showed some tire wear in our first pit stop and I started to get concerned. We were late in the run and I started to feel a vibration. I had a feeling that I may be in trouble. That’s racing. We’ve been lucky to miss incidents all last year that helped us win the championship and now, this year, we’re two-for-two in DNF’s.
ARE YOU SEEING A LOT MORE TIRE WEAR WITH THIS NEW CAR? ARE GUYS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THIS TIRE? “Our team never saw this tire until we got to the track this weekend. It’s a combination of the new tire and the new car and that was the recipe for disaster.”
