June 3, 2012 , DOVER, Del.- Brad Keselowski
(No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T) Finished 12th
"We were anywhere from a 10th to 15th-place car today.
We made good adjustments all day on the Miller Lite Dodge and
had solid pit stops to run a little better than that. We were
just kind of stuck. We didn't make the car worse and we
didn't make it better. The guys on the Miller Lite Dodge
did a good job executing to get us a solid finish. It was
really all I had today."
WHAT HAPPENED ON PIT ROAD WHEN YOU STALLED THE CAR?
"Just stalled the car. We only lost two or three
DID YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU WERE CATCHING UP ON THE TRACK?
"A little bit. We were about the same all day. We tried
some things this weekend and just didn't get the speed
out of the car that we needed."
YOU COME BACK HERE IN THE FALL FOR A CHASE RACE. CAN YOU TAKE
AWAY ANYTHING FROM TODAY? "Yeah, we need to find more
consistent speed in our car. We were OK today, but OK
isn't going to win you races. We have some work to do
before we come back here in a few months."
Paul Wolfe (crew chief, No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T)
"It was tough day. We never really had good speed in the
car all day. We adjusted on it and tried some different
things. We just weren't able to find it today. We used
some strategy to help get us track position at one point that
moved us a little bit. Overall, we just couldn't get it
to run the way we wanted to today. This track hasn't been
a good one for us. We tried something new this weekend and
found that it didn't work. Back to the drawing
A.J. Allmendinger (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T)
"Wish we could have at least pulled out a top 15, but we
just struggled all weekend. The guys made some big changes
Saturday after qualifying for the start of the race and for
those first few laps before the red flag it felt decent but
pretty quick into that next run we got tight and the car just
felt on top of the track.
"From there we just spent the rest of the race chasing
the balance...just couldn't get both ends of the car
working at the same time, kept going from one extreme to the
other and didn't feel like the right rear was ever really
in it. It's frustrating for me, for my guys, everyone. I
was looking forward to this weekend since this has been a
pretty good track for me in the past and we had a good tire
test here so just really disappointed we couldn't bring
home a better finish for the Shell Pennzoil Dodge."
Todd Gordon (crew chief, No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger
"A tough day for us. I think this race track has a lot
of swings in it as it rubbers up and comes back. Everybody
struggled with race cars today and other teams seemed to
dampen that a little bit."
