Ron Hornaday , No. 33 Camping World Silverado, Started 2nd, Finished 1st:

"This is an awesome win for our Camping World Silverado. Rick Ren (crew chief) called an awesome race and the adjustments they made on the first stop made the truck awesome."

On restart for green/white/checkered:

"We were coming down for the green and Johnny (Benson, finished second) bumped me in the back and I am thinking 'Whoa Johnny, I am not even to the line yet.' I don't go until I get to that line because I have been black-flagged so many times, it would have been my fourth or fifth time, so I wasn't going to go. Now they are saying it is in the vicinity of the line. But the vicinity for me is when my front tires cross that line that is when I go. Johnny and those guys have to understand that; they can run in to the back of this truck all they want. It worked for out us.

On how strong his program is on all tracks:

"Like I said, Rick Ren, Danny, all the guys, everybody at the shop, it takes all of them, you start naming names, it just takes everybody. I went to (Ken) Schrader's track at Peavley and learned how to slide them good. But, it is an awesome effort for the whole team at Kevin Harvick, Inc. I think Schrader's track did help me cause I was sliding it in the last 10 laps.

On contact with Willie Allen:

"I started in under Willie and Benson and Travis (Kvapil) were right there with me and Willie slid up a little bit and I got in to him and he got in to the wall. I apologize to Willie cause I hate it that happened. Willie is a great little racer and he had a good truck tonight.
