NASCAR WCUP: DieHard 500 Post Race Quotes, Jeff Burton

26 April 1999

JEFF BURTON -99- Exide Batteries Taurus -- "We're not too disappointed with this finish. We ran better than where we finished, but there was a car that was a lap down and he just insisted on running up there with the leaders. He went with another line other than going with me and he messed me up. I don't think a car a lap down oughta make you finish better or worse, he oughta get out of the way, but I guess it's everybody's race track. Everybody is entitled to the same race track, but he shouldn't affect the outcome of the race." WHAT HAPPENED AT THE START OF THE RACE? "Fortunately what happened at the beginning of the race didn't affect us a whole lot. It must just be a pin-hole or something in one of the cylinder heads. As long as we had a good vacuum on the engine, it wouldn't leak oil. You've gotta have a little bit of luck. We're not too disappointed with this finish. We're not overly joyed because we thought we had a better car than 12th."
