Boris Said , No. 36 USG Durock Brand Chevrolet

With qualifying canceled and the field set by owner points, Boris Said did not qualify for Sunday's SIRIUS at The Glen. The only time the No. 36 MB2 Motorsports car ran this year was when Said finished sixth in June at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

"I am a depressed but when you look at the big picture with our men and women fighting for our freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan and people in Tampa waiting for a category 4 hurricane to hit, my life isn't bad. I only missed a Cup race and there will me more in my future.

"Rules are the rules -- I'm not bitter. But I do feel bad for everyone at MB2 Motorsports and USG Durock for the effort they put into this race. We really felt that we were going to be a contender on Sunday. We had a good run in Sonoma a couple of months ago and felt that we could at least back that up here, if not improve on it. Watkins Glen is one of my favorite tracks and I'm going to miss racing here Sunday. This is not the first time this happened to me here. Four years ago I was driving a Jimmy Spencer car and was fastest in practice but qualifying got rained out and I went home. As I said, rules are rules and today they weren't in my favor. No hard feelings. I'll be back."

Said posted top-10 results in three of his last four Cup races while driving for MB2 Motorsports.
