"The keys to the beetle are on the night table.  I always like to drive fast when I feel that way.  You get it up around ninety-five and you feel wonderful.  Sometimes I drive all night and come back and you don't know it.  It's fun out in the country.  You hit rabbits, sometimes you hit dogs.  Go take the beetle."

I think that his the quote you are looking for. It doesn't mention how she wants to clear her head.  It just says, "when I feel that way," referring to how Montag has just said that he has "an awful feeling I want to smash things and kill things."  This entire sequence can be found a few pages before the end of section one after Beatty has delivered his little history lesson and left.  I hope that helps!
