RYAN NEWMAN, NO. 39 US ARMY CHEVROLET, involved in multi-car accident on lap 301: WHAT HAPPENED OUT THERE, I KNOW YOU HAD NO WHERE TO GO? “No we didn’t. I couldn’t get the car pulled down in time and they (Mark Martin and David Gilliland) bounced off the wall and came back and got me. We were just a by-product of it. We shouldn’t have been in that position, we should have been out front. Just disappointed in our day. The US Army Chevrolet was not good but the guys fought hard. Just got on the unfortunate side of an unfortunate accident.”
MARK MARTIN, NO. 5 CARQUEST/GODADDY.COM CHEVROLET, involved in multi-car accident on lap 301: WHAT HAPPENED OUT THERE? “I don’t know. I was running on the outside and got collected. I don’t know, I have no idea. We were running on the race track there on the high side and I got collected. I haven’t seen it, I don’t know what happened.”
ON WHAT HAPPENED? “We got in a wreck. It was shame. Everybody’s working hard and you want to finish these things off. And we got collected in a wreck. That is too bad for our team.”
