“At least we can say we beat Harvick.”

That’s what Austin Dillon said over his radio after Kevin Harvick was eliminated from Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 in a wreck, his first DNF in the race.

Dillon had been involved in his own incident early in the race, resulting in a long visit to the garage.

That’s just one highlight of the best team radio communication during the 600-mile race, which saw some teams experience strange interference – or hacking – on their radio channels.

Here are other highlights.

  • “I have no idea who that was. Somebody was screaming.” – Matt McCall, Jamie McMurray‘s crew chief, in response to one case of radio interference.
  • “Be sure to thank the 11 for being such a great guy.” – Jimmie Johnson after contact with Denny Hamlin caused him to spin on Lap 120.
  • “He had a damn light show there.” – Bubba Wallace after Ryan Blaney‘s No. 12 Ford erupted in flames.
  • “Ever since I was kid I dreamt of this!” – Kyle Busch after claiming his first Cup points win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
