TERRY COOK -- No. 10 Ford Power Stroke Diesel F-150 (Finished 2nd)

"Our truck was just really good at the end of the race there and ran Mike down from about 15-20 truck lengths back and got to his bumper at the white flag. I tried to look at making a move in turn one and two and thought, 'No, I need to do it in three and four,' and, unfortunately, when I went to make the move I just lost the front end on the truck and slipped up the track. He powered away on the bottom and got the victory, but he obviously had a strong truck all day as well."

HE WAS DOWN.

"Yeah, he put it on the stripe and I knew where he was going so I stuck it up top trying to go where he wasn't and, unfortunately, it just wasn't quite enough. I think another lap or two working him I could have got up alongside of him and at least made a hell of a race out of it. I can't sit here and tell you I would have won it, but I guarantee you we would have had donuts on both of our trucks."
