ARE YOUR SORE AT ALL FROM LAST WEEK AFTER YOUR CRASH INTO THE DAYTONA WALL?
Harvick: "The tracks, for the most part, don't listen to really anything unless it's profitable for their shareholders. So, when you see somebody spending $400 million dollars on their track and they don't have soft walls around the inside, maybe they could spend $403 million to go ahead and finish the inside of the superspeedway there at Daytona. Yeah, I was sore all week. And, just today feel good enough to do what I need to do. So, it was just a weird situation.
The car didn't have any brakes or any steering and the throttle was partially hung coming off the wall and going through the wet grass and then into no safer barrier at the end of pit road there. So, it was a hard shot. It's a little bit frustrating because it really shouldn't even be a debate. I know they have data that shows where the most frequently hit spots are but we wear all this safety equipment and do all the things that we do to these race tracks for that one freak incident to keep things from happening like happened back in 2001. So, it's shouldn't even be a debate. It's just one of those things I guess that you just wait around for something else to happen and then they'll fix it."
