Dale Coyne Racing’s Conor Daly has reacted to his accident with Josef Newgarden on lap 42 of the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday by saying:

I was the rookie to make the mistake. The car was really consistent. It was fantastic and we were making great progress. I didn’t expect that slide at all. We were consistently running and, all of a sudden, the rear (tires) just totally lost grip. I felt like I floated all the way through the corner. It was all my mistake. I should have recognized it but it was definitely a rookie mistake. I was trying to stay a little bit lower because I knew Josef (Newgarden) was coming. Maybe by pinching it a little bit, I just put too much load on the right rear. While the car was quite good, I was on the edge in (Turns) 3 and 4 all the time. I apologized to him in there because that was my mistake, for sure.”
