KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger) "Tough night for our Miller Lite Dodge. I'm not sure what really happened. I'm just making more laps in the ambulance than I am on the track (chuckles). We still have two good bullets. I thought that I was in the outside lane, crossed into the middle; I was just trying to figure out the draft with the big restrictor plate. Man, I'm making a bunch of mistakes I guess.

"Once I got hit, the hood just popped up and I couldn't see much. I was just trying to stay out of the wall, but the momentum took us up there. All in all, I thought that I was in the high lane and I got on the high side of Mark (Martin) going through Turn 4. I don't know if I pinched him or he wanted to come up. It's not fun. I'm making more laps in the ambulance then I am on the track. Sorry Roger (Penske, team owner). I've got two burned up cars. We still have our primary (car) and a primary back up, but not a good average right now. I'm just looking for this weekend to be over and we'll start up again next Wednesday."
