“This team has shown a lot of speed all year long. There's been some races over the summer months where I feel like we didn't put all the pieces together. To be able to come to Richmond and execute in the race before the Chase starts, says a lot about what we're capable of and what our team can do as we get into the Chase.”
Paul Wolfe, crew chief for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski, after their fourth win of the season came Saturday night at Richmond.
“It's 15 years of hard work. I was crying as I crossed the (finish) line. It's surreal. It's just a fantastic way to finish the season.”
Team Penske driver Will Power after capturing his first Verizon IndyCar Series championship at the season finale at Auto Club Speedway.
“When you are that far off, it is the hardest thing in the world to drive. This is the toughest thing I've ever done in my life, drive and try to stay in the top 20.”

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer following his strong performance Saturday night at Richmond that wasn’t enough to qualify him for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
