MIKE SKINNER, No. 5 Toyota Tundra, Bill Davis Racing Finished: 3rd

How much did you have to work on the truck to get the finish you did?

"It was an eventful race. The truck drove really bad in qualifying. We started pretty far back, for this team. We just weren't that good. Our truck was a bottom-feeder -- it couldn't run up high at all. Whenever I got around other trucks, we were just aerodynamically off. This is the first time we ran this truck. AJ (Allmendinger) actually drove this truck in Loudon (N.H.) a year ago. We brought it back from the dead and tested it here -- and thought it was pretty good. When he (Kyle Busch) came down pit road -- I said that just won him the race right there. We didn't have radar in our pits, but I bet we have radar next time."
