DENNIS SETZER, No. 85 Shell Rotella T Silverado, Qualified 26th, Finished 11th

"We started out pretty good early in the race, it would roll through the center good, and then we were a little tight on exit, and we made some adjustments on that and went exactly the wrong way. Unfortunately, it didn't ever get back under us during the race. We were really good through the center of the corner during the first part of the race, but we couldn't get it back under us. I guess the track changed, and the truck just went away."

CHAD MCCUMBEE, No. 07 Silverado Chevrolet, Qualified 17th , Finished 13th

"We started out the weekend a little off, and we worked on old tire stuff all weekend, and it paid off there at the end. We got a little behind, and came back to 13th, and I told the guys that that was all I had. This is what we need to keep doing, our whole organization looks good, and getting a lot of attention. We are showing people what we can do, and just keep it up. I told the guys thanks for letting me live my dream, I am getting a break to do what I love for a living, and hopefully we can keep the momentum going. I want to show people what this team can do, and I think that we are turning some heads."

How was your truck today? "Well it's kinda hard to get good track position when every time you come down pit road and the yellow comes out. That happened to us a couple of times today and got us behind. We started out the day really, really bad but the guys kept working on the truck and got it better every time. But as far as the finish, I really don't know. Its the same truck we ran at Michigan and it hasn't been too good to us yet so we might just push that one in the corner somewhere for a while."

RON HORNADAY JR., No. 33 Kevin Harvick Inc. Silverado, Qualified 21st , Finished 12th

"We fell back, and the handling went away. We had a truck that would run 25 to 30 laps, and then we just came in too early for tires, and we thought we could run 60 laps on tires and that just didn't work. All in all, a good day, we know we can run with these guys, we just need to run the whole run on tires. We are gaining on them with our Silverado, and we'll figure it out."
