"We had such a fast car today, it's such a shame that we had that problem in the pits. I really feel like we would have been right there with Scott (Dixon) for the win. We've had such bad luck this year. It's disappointing, obviously but it's also encouraging in some ways that we have such fast cars. I'm proud of the job that Team Target did this weekend and we'll just keep digging. The luck has to go our way soon."

"Team Target has given me great cars everytime that we have been to a track this year. We just haven't finished a lot of races yet. It was a great day for me and everyone in this organization. The Toyota engine gave us great fuel mileage and it allowed us to go just a little bit further on each stint. I'm so happy for the team. We moved up from 7th to 2nd in the points and I feel that we're in position now to challenge for the championship."
