Greg Van Alst comments
“He just drove through us,” Greg Van Alst told Fox Sports after exiting the infield care center.
“I know he’s on better tires, we got 4 laps until the break. Just, not respect.”
“There’s three other lanes out there. I’m in the middle lane, he could’ve went lower or he could’ve went higher. He just left rear’s us.”
“I don’t know, it’s frustrating because we keep getting wrecked. You can’t race anybody anymore. Just the way racing is anymore, nobody passes clean. They just drive through ya.”
“I’m getting kinda frustrated with it. Maybe I just go race with my boys and do this 1-2 times a year.”
“Like I said, there’s three other lanes out there and he’s gotta pick the same one I’m in.”
Van Alst concluded, “I’ll have a talk with him and see what he says. But, he better say he’s sorry because I may not make the next one now.”
