Quotable: Our Favorite Driver Quips And Comments From Daytona

Here are some selected driver quotes so far from the interviews at Daytona International Speedway preseason testing:

"When everyone stops calling me 'Kevin,' we'll be settled in."Shell-sponsored driver Kurt Busch, on sporting Kevin Harvick's former colors in the No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge.

"I want to be in racing for a very long time, and I know that I can drive good enough to run well. I'll stick around until I get it right. It's just eventually going to have to happen."Dale Earnhardt Jr.

"To be honest with you, I haven't even thought about racing in the last month. I really haven't. Not one bit."Denny Hamlin

"I know people expect me to react and think, 'Oh, they've got to leave it alone, don't change it.' I don't care what races are in the Chase (or) the format to win the championship. I could care less because I feel confident my team will be able to win championships under any set of circumstances."Jimmie Johnson, on the possibility of a new points system in NASCAR.

"I love racing here. Here and Talladega are some of the funnest races for us as drivers until you get in a wreck, and then you're just pissed off. It's like gambling, really – it's just a lot of fun to do it until you lose."Martin Truex Jr., on racing at Daytona.

"You literally could hold a cup of coffee with the lid off full and not spill a drop riding around there."Tony Stewart, on the smoothness of the newly repaved Daytona surface.
