Question of the Day
“Big shout out to NASCAR,” Ambrose said. “A lot of people (were) saying, `Should they have thrown a caution or not?’ No one wants to see these races finish under caution, bunched back up in these two-by-twos. We had the three fastest cars duking it out for the win. That’s the way it should be.”
ROAD RACE ACE KESELOWSKI: Brad Keselowski finished second Sunday in his No. 2 Dodge to Marcos Ambrose for the second straight year on the road course at Watkins Glen International, an impressive showing against one of the best road racers around.
Keselowski also finished second on Saturday to Carl Edwards in the Nationwide race at The Glen, with both races not decided until the final turn.
Say hello to the next road race ace in NASCAR, and listen to one of the best.
“I got to take a second here to say Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch are two of the best road racers I’ve been around,” Ambrose said. “They’re amazing drivers. The 2 car, they’ve been really great here the last couple years. They’re a force to be reckoned with, no doubt.”
Paul Wolfe, crew chief for the No. 2, isn’t surprised.
“Brad has proven that he can run a great pace on road courses,” Wolfe said. “Today was no different. We led a bunch of laps and we’re there at the end to have a shot at the win. That’s all you can ask for as a crew chief. I think that we’ve shown over the last few weeks that we’ve put ourselves in position to win, and that’s what we’re here to do.”
“You have to understand there’s a part of me that’s so thrilled to be competitive on a road course,” Keselowski said. “There’s just a large part of me that’s tickled to run that well because I’m not supposed to. The last year and a half we’ve been very strong.
“I’m proud of the last two days I had. I feel like Jimmie Johnson with the cars I’ve had on road courses of late. Trying to keep perspective how far we’ve come as a team.”
ALWAYS ON THE ROAD: Too bad NASCAR can’t clone Tony Stewart.
Although Stewart spun out in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International while running second with just under 20 laps left in the 90-lap race and finished 19th, ending his chance for a sixth win at the storied road course, it was another day of racing and it doesn’t get any better than that for Smoke.
