What Kevin Harvick had to say about Saturday's Truck race one day later

   Sprint Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick spoke to Fox Sports 1's "NASCAR RaceDay" hosts John Roberts, Kyle Petty and Larry McReynolds on Sunday morning about Saturday's incident with Ty Dillon in the NASCAR Truck race.

    What made you angry in yesterday’s incident?
   “I think there was just a lot of emotion involved. I hate it for everybody at RCR. You go back and look at the things that happened, and sometimes you regret the things that you say for sure. Yesterday was definitely one of them. I hate it for my guys, and everybody working on the cars. Obviously, when those emotional situations come about; you say things that you really don’t want to say. I just want to apologize to all of those guys, work hard today and try and do everything we can to win the race."

   Were these comments a result of the frustration and the pressure?
   “I think yesterday was just some frustration on how the race ended. You never want to be in a situation like were in, and obviously, the short-track racing and everything that happened, you try to do the right things, and yesterday I didn’t do the right thing. We just have to do what we have to do today to put ourselves in a position to be as successful as we can.”

   Have you had a conversation with Ty Dillon?
   “No. I think it’s best for all of us to just cool down and have a sensible conversation about things that are going. I wish that’s what I would have done yesterday. It’s one of those situations that you don’t want to be a part of, but I don’t have anybody else to blame but myself.”
