Richmond II Post-race Quotes

KASEY KAHNE (No. 9 Budweiser Dodge Charger)
Finished 12th

"It feels great to make it in the Chase. We wanted to run a little better tonight, but we did enough to make it into the Chase. I'm proud of everyone on this Budweiser Dodge team. Kenny (Francis, crew chief) called a great race and put us in position to stay up front and not get caught up in someone else's mess. I'm happy for all the guys that work so hard to put our Budweiser Dodge in a position to make the Chase. It's a great feeling."


KENNY FRANCIS (Crew Chief, No. 9 Budweiser Dodge Charger)
"The Budweiser Dodge was a handful tonight. We were just too loose off the corner all night. We could never get it to where we liked it, but we kept chasing it and got it to the point where we were about a top-10 car. We made some gains on it, but more importantly, we did what we had to do to make the Chase.
"We're in the Chase. It's a real relief for everyone to make it. It's big for the whole organization at RPM and Dodge and Budweiser and all our partners. We're just looking forward to putting together some good runs the next 10 races and give them all we got."


REED SORENSON (No. 43 Reynolds Wrap Dodge Charger)
Finished 16th
"We certainly finished better than the way we started off tonight. We were down a lap early but we knew our car was pretty fast. Sammy Johns and the crew did a great job all night. We were pretty good. I didn't say much on the radio, just drove as hard as I could. That was a good night for us."


AJ ALLMENDINGER (No. 44 Dodge Charger)
Finished 23rd

"It's pretty frustrating that we were so good for the first half of the race and then struggled so hard for the last part. We were running really well, then the handling just went to the point where I couldn't turn the car and we had no rear grip. We tried to fix it, but just couldn't figure it out."


ELLIOTT SADLER (No. 19 Insignia/Best Buy Dodge Charger)
Finished 34th

"That was a frustrating night. We tried some pit strategy but a long green flag run killed us because we had to come to pit lane. That killed our chances for a good finish."
