ERIK DARNELL -99-Woolrich Ford F-150 (Finished 3rd)
Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year press conference

"Well, our truck tonight was really good. John Quinn and all of the guys did a great job. Our whole Woolrich team did a great job. We had a couple of mishaps in the pits and got us behind a little bit, but they nailed the third stop and we were able to get some good track position and make a run there toward the end. We weren't as good as Mark, and we were catching Brendan there, but we just kind of ran out of laps. The season a whole, we can't complain. We had decent year, not quite what I was looking for. I didn't quite get to some of the goals that I was looking for. To come out of here the way we did and to win the Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year deal, that was kind of our ultimate goal coming into the season. It's kind of mission accomplished as far as that goes."

"Well, for us, this is pretty big. I think we ended up in the last five races running in the top 10 for all of them. I think that just shows how well we've come together as a team, both myself and John Quinn working together, and just everybody on the team in general. I think it's going to give us quite a bit of momentum coming into next year. I think the last six or seven races of the year are just a preview for what's to come next year, and I'm hoping to run up front and we're going to be looking to be a championship contender."
