PIT ROAD COMMENTS "I'm disappointed because I thought we had a little better truck than that. These guys did a really good job on pit road. My crew chief Mike Beam made a great call taking two tires there at the end. The big thing for us was to get back up in the top five in points and I'm pretty sure we did that tonight. It was a good night."

RICK CRAWFORD -- No. 14 Circle Bar/International Truck Engine Ford F-150 -- (finished 17th, qualified 12th)

"I'm proud of my Circle Bar Ford F-150 race team with International Truck and Engine on board for the past three years. It's been quite a ride. We haven't had the stellar year that we wanted this year, but we were top 10 in the points for the sixth consecutive year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. That means a lot of consistency and we're there each and every race. I wish all of the fans out there would drive one of the best Ford pick-ups of any car company out there. I'll keep turning to the left and Ford F-150 keeps taking me to the finish line. We're top-10 in points, I'm very proud of my team. Hopefully we're back next year."

IT WAS AN UP AND DOWN NIGHT FOR YOU ON THE SCORING SHEET. "I was struggling all day, I really did. I don't understand. Our truck wasn't what we brought here yesterday and even in qualifying, we were 12th fastest and really optimistic about how the race was going. The green flag dropped and she acted like she had four flat tires. We even pitted there at the end and put four sticker tires on it thinking it would be different to make up some positions there at the end and it just wouldn't do it. The truck got contrary on me. The truck just wants to go back to Texas and work out on the farm, so that's what we might do with it. It's a great truck; it was the 2009 MotorTrend Truck of the Year and the number one selling pick-up in the state of Texas."
