Don Kreitz, Jr.
“That was cutting it too close! I could see the King (Steve Kinser) starting to lose his tires there at the end. I don’t know what he ran (for tire compound), but you could really see he was spinning his tires on the straightaways those last few laps. Davey (Brown) and I talked about it before the race tonight, and we set the car up to get down the straightaways when the track got slick, and it won us the race. It’s hard to make up much ground in the corners here, but if you can get down the straightaways you can usually make a move. I didn’t want to wait until the last lap to make my move, but I thought I screwed up by showing myself too early. I’m sure Steve knew it was me, and that’s why he went to the bottom to try and block me, but there was a lot of dust down there in (turn) 4, and when he got into that it let me get a run on the inside. I didn’t get through 3&4 at all on that last lap, and I pretty much killed all of my momentum. I figured he would just wing it in on the top on that last lap, and I was just trying to get back up to speed off of the last corner, and it just barely took off in time.”
