"Team Target gave me a great car today and Toyota gave us great fuel mileage. It feels great to get the points lead heading into this week off. It was a lot of fun out there today. I really enjoyed racing with all of those guys. It was good clean racing and obviously, we wanted to win the race, but we got a lot of points and had a strong finish."

"It was a great race. There were so many great cars out there, lots of 3-wide racing. Any one of 5 or 6 guys could have won the race today, but we had our best finish of the year and I'm happy about that. Sam (Hornish) and I had some great battles out there and I enjoy racing with him. He's a clean driver who gives you a lot of room on the track. We were close to another win today, but came up just a little bit short."
