Jimmie Johnson , No. 48 Lowe's Monte Carlo SS - Finished Third

ON HIS RUN:

"It was a solid race. We really had a great car. We ran up in the top five all day long and just excited to get the race in and get on down the road and not have to worry about coming back on Thanksgiving. So a solid performance on pit road, on the race track. I thought we had the right strategy at the end with the two tires but the tire Goodyear brought seemed to be really good for five or six laps even on old tires. They recovered well and I just didn't have enough time to get those two tires to work and get by the 1 and 2."

IS IT STRANGE RACING ON A TUESDAY?

"Of course, first time for me racing on a Tuesday. But I can't say enough for the fans that stuck it out. It's been hard the teams, a lot of us race teams had test sessions set up to run during this week. I was supposed to be Milwaukee and it's jumbled things up so it's put a lot of pressure and extra workload on the teams."
