JOHNNY BENSON , No. 23 TCUV Tundra, Bill Davis Racing Finished: 2nd

Did you have anything for race-winner Ron Hornaday at the end?

"I was working on him a little bit there with about 40 or 50 to go, but could never quite get it done. I used up my tires trying to get by him, and didn't really have anything for him there at the end. It seemed like everyone needed to run the high groove to be fast, so that made it hard to pass anybody. I just couldn't quite get the truck to cut in the corner they way it needed to. Overall, it was a good night, though."

Why did the team decide to bring a new truck to ORP?

"The other short track trucks were just old. We weren't real satisfied with how we were at some of the other short tracks earlier this season, so we decided to bring what we thought was our best stuff, which was a new truck. The truck was decent here, and obviously I'm pretty happy with a second-place finish, but I just wish we could've had a little bit more at the end."
