2012 Daytona 500: Jeff Gordon NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Quotes - P6

JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET - QUALIFIED 6th ON HIS ROLLOVER AND CRASH IN THE BUDWEISER SHOOTOUT SATURDAY NIGHT "Oh, I was having a lot of fun right up until that crash happened last night. And as safe as these cars are, and with the Hendrick carbon-fiber seat that we put in the car, I’m pretty amazed how I feel today considering. Yeah, we were certainly hoping for a little bit more. The Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet; well right now, it looks like the Fords obviously brought something pretty special and we gave it our best effort. The wind is howling out there pretty good and we’ll see where we end up with that."

IT IS JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE YOU CATCH THE WIND OR DON’T CATCH THE WIND? "The wind can help you. But the wind is not going to help you by two or two and a half tenths; that lap Carl (Edwards) put up there is really spectacular."

DID YOU ENJOY GOING BACK TO PACK RACING IN THE BUDWEISER SHOOTOUT LAST NIGHT? "I did enjoy it. I mean there is still a lot of risk involved in doing the tandem drafting and yet we’re still seeing it. You’ve still got to survive and play it smart but yet you’ve got to be aggressive. So, I like this; I feel like if you’re up front you have a little better shot of staying up there. I like that. That kind of takes me back to when I first started in this series. I thought it was a very exciting race and an exciting finish. I think we’re going to see a lot more of that this week."

ON THE SAFETY CHANGES NASCAR HAS MADE IN THE LAST 10 - 12 YEARS, YOU ARE A WALKING TESTAMENT TO THAT AFTER THE BUDWEISER SHOOTOUT "Yeah, we’ve definitely made huge strides. That’s the first time I’ve been upside down and you always worry about when you’re rolling like that, what it’s going to be like. And that was the easiest part of the entire event. The big hit into the wall was much more severe; and that is a true testament to the safer barrier and the Hans device and the structure of the cars and the seatbelts that we’re running. It’s pretty impressive. I hate that it happened altogether, but we sure were having fun up until that point."
