KYLE LARSON HAS NEVER STARTED ON THE FRONT ROW OF THE DAYTONA 500. TONIGHT, A POLE. WHAT DOES THIS ONE MEAN TO YOU KYLE KNOWING EVERYTHING WITH THIS NEXT GEN CAR, TO BE THE FIRST TO DO IT?
“Yeah, it’s really neat. It makes me just, I mean anytime you are really proud of your team to get a pole here cause this is the littlest it has to do with us drivers, qualifying at superspeedways. Just a huge thank you to the engine shop at Hendrick Motorsports. Everybody who’s had a part in touching these vehicles, whether it be on the computer, engineering, or just hands on. It’s really neat, just awesome the speed in our HendrickCars.com Chevy. Hopefully this is the beginning of a really good weekend.”
MR. H, RICK HENDRICK, BELIEVED IN YOU. BROUGHT YOU OVER HERE A YEAR AGO. HE JUST CALLED YOU, WHAT DID HE SAY?
“He said he loves seeing that HendrickCars.com Chevy on the pole. That paint scheme means a lot to him and Linda and means a lot to the whole Hendrick Motorsports family, so to have it on the pole at the Daytona 500 is really special. I think it would be even more special if we could win the Duels tomorrow and go on Sunday and win the 500.”
