Daytona 400: Post-Race Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA COATING SYSTEMS CHEVROLET SS - Caught up in accident on lap 149 finished 34th
YOU GOT KIND OF CAUGHT UP IN THE ACCIDENT WITH THE NO.11 AND THE NO. 20 TALK ABOUT IT FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE:
"Yeah, we lost some track position there. Had a really strong car, really good handling Axalta Chevrolet tonight so I was happy about that. Great to have Finish Master and the 50 years that Axalta has been with them on board tonight too. Just sitting there kind of riding along hoping that outside lane, I can't say we were riding, it was pretty aggressive. Just nowhere to go and just riding that outside lane hoping they were starting to make progress. I don't know I just saw somebody spin in front of me. We all tried to avoid it. I guess it was the No. 11 and we all tried to avoid them and Matt (Kenseth) got sideways and then I didn't have anywhere to go either. Got the right-front and that just sent the car into the wall.
"It's unfortunate. I still think we had a great shot at getting the car to the front. We had a very strong race car and you have to survive before you can ever get there. You have to finish too."
