Steve Letarte summarized it up nicely on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s “The Morning Drive” this week: Winning is Better Than Losing!
"It’s simple, and this is going to sound funny, but this is the quote we all talked about in Martinsville and this is our new mantra and it’s winning is better than losing. If you’re gonna go and you’re gonna spend the time and money and effort….do it right or don’t do it at all. Winning is better than losing, that’s what we figured it out and there’s three more to go and our goal is to win all three.”
Letarte, who will be leaving Hendrick Motorsports after the 2014 season to become an analyst for NBC Sports added,
“It was a great day, a hard-fought day. Beating and banging all throughout the field. I think we saw more catastrophic style crashes. You see a lot of sliding around here, but today we saw more serious crashes than we have ever seen. That is what the sport has created. It's stressful. It's high pressure. It's what we want. It was exciting to come out on top.”
