Kurt Bush wins Quaker State 400 in overtime – NASCAR Talk



Kurt Busch beat younger brother Kyle to the finish at Saturday night's Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.

Here's what the Bush brothers and other drivers had to say afterward:

Kurt Busch – Winner: "Hell yeah, hell yeah! know know know,, know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know know You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You You a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but He could have clobbered us against the wall, and third place probably would have got it. What an awesome run. Well, we got a yellow at the end that put us back in position. Whatever last week, it's this week right now, and we've got the trophy. "

Kyle Busch ̵

1; finished second: " I'm glad it was a thriller , Unfortunately we were on the wrong end of the deal. Been part of a lot of them, but none with my brother like that. So that was a first. No hard feelings. "

Erik Jones – finished third: A lot early. We just did not have the track position. We did not where we wanted to and had to work back from that. Right from the start I knew that the Craftsman Camry was pretty good. I felt comfortable in practice in race trim. Just got to work back from it and took it to the second stage to get up there and we were finally in position and got some good rest stops and some good pit stops and got up in contention on the last restart. You can not ask for much more. You want to be there and want to have a shot. We did that.

Kyle Larson – Fourth: " I thought the race was for the lead there. What did you do? really good from what i could see. It was good, maybe a little better than your normal Kentucky. … (19659011) I was satisfied with the launch I had. I was going to commit to Kurt I could not help but make a teammate out, I was happy with that. I'm happy for Kurt (Busch), Matt McCall and everybody on the 1 team. They have been very strong all year long. They should have been last week, so it's nice to get some redemption today. … I could not believe we did not crash. Kyle (bush) What a loose couple in the morning. There's something really good about it. "

Denny Hamlin – Finished Fifth : " W e definitely had a fast car (laps) to go detrimental to try to win the race. We did not make a call with no tires there and did not gain track position. We've had better tires than everyone and we can not wait to come to fifth, so pretty happy with that effort. We have almost cars every week. As long as we have a clean race, we have chances to win and we just can not have the penalties that we have and wrecks that we've had. It's just a combination of things where we really, really close. "

Clint Bowyer – finished sixth: " It's a positive night for us. We finally got some stage points the last two races. I did not start out, but I did not have any good job. Our SHR cars are extremely fast, we show that in qualifying, but they are not the best in race trim and traffic yet. We have work to do there and we know that. We've been to the magic mile next weekend but the month of June that we had, we had to get that monkey shook off our back. We were just there in June, but we were just as easily wrecked in one step. We needed a good solid finish and we got some good positive mojo back with our team and we want to build on it. "

Joey Logano – finished seventh: " The caution came out at the wrong time. It happens. You try to think through your notebook. Kyle (bush) got into me I thought I was going to get a decent one. That is what it is. That stopped all my momentum. (Kurt Busch) had a huge run and I did not have anywhere to go. I could not block them all. I tried to stop (Kyle Busch) on his right hand side by side-drafting. I saw (Kurt Busch) coming and felt like I could not get away from it. I felt like I could not stop (Kurt Busch). I was in a bad spot. Once I got stopped on the left I started on the back. … (How frustrating is it?) " It's frustrating when you're almost enough to win and you do not win, yes it's frustrating. … (What the racing good?) " Yeah, it was a great race. It was a lot of fun. You had ever had the best Kentucky race. If I was a race fan I would say that was a cool finish. I'm a little too close to the fire to say it's a cool finish right now. … (On the final restart) "We were in a perfect position when the caution came out. I did what I could to clear (Kyle Busch) before Turn 1. I got a decent launch but it stopped my momentum. … I just did not do a good enough job. We had the fastest car and we did not win. That's the takeaway. "

Daniel Suarez – finished eighth: " What an eventful night for sure. We just had a fast race car but we got a bit tight. Better than we got the track position back. I was hopping because of the tire. It was one problem after another. We were almost enough to overcome that, but not enough to get a better finish. I feel like the good thing is we have the speed we just have to keep working on it. … (Is it an empty feeling to be on the pole and not come with any stage points?) " It is. I feel like the first stage. That is part of it. We made our bed on that. There was one caution after another and we could not recover. After that we had the flat tire. It was a good run. "

Ryan Newman – Finished ninth: " It was a good run. To start where we did and get back into the top 10, that was good. We had a crazy last restart, lost a few spots but got it back in (turns) 3 and 4. I'm proud of the guys. … (Restarts like the final one) are crazy, but this aero package makes it that way. … I think we got five or six cars coming to the white. It's a good run for our Acorns Ford. We still have to make our performance better. The guys did a good job on pit lane but we just got to faster race cars. We have not quite come to the right track, but we can not come to the track and qualify for the title.

Chris Buescher – finished 10th: " Our Planter's Camaro was pretty good at certain times, but we definitely did fought it. We worked hard to keep it where we needed to be all day long. That's good strategy on top of the pit box; hats off to our group. We've got some work to do, but that was a great finish. … (Are you encouraged by the speed you've shown?) " Yeah, absolutely. It's encouraging to see it. To be 100 percent honest, tonight what not one of our better 1.5-mile tracks compared to where we have been in the last couple of months. With that said, we definitely got a finish out of it. We ran good; we ran on the lead lap all night long. We are trying to find some more speed. We had not qualified really well and I think tonight what about trying to figure out a way to get some more raw speed out of it.

Ryan Blaney – finished 13th: "You come into it every weekend, no matter if it is your best track or worst track. I do not really go into any weekend. You just try to do your best. My team did a great job overcoming adversity early in the race to get back on the lead lap. Our DEX Imaging Ford Mustang was just so tight. The last restart was crazy and almost got into the wall. We want to move on to New Hampshire. "

Brad Keselowski – finished 20th: " I do not know, we'll need to get back to the shop and figure out what happened tonight. We just did not have the speed with the discount Tire Ford Mustang.

Ty Dillon – finished 26th : " Kentucky is a tricky track. I really enjoy racing here, but it always has its challenges. Tonight was not the night we had hoped for, but we learned a lot. Our GEICO Military team has seen great improvements in our superspeedway and short-track packages, and these intermediate tracks are next on the list.

We hope to have more driver quotes shortly. We can not wait for the finishes that we deserve , Please check back.
