BRIAN ICKLER, No. 51 Miccosukee Resort Toyota Tundra, Billy Ballew Motorsports
Finishing Position: 5th

Are you happy with today's finish? "Absolutely, after everything we have had to overcome. This Miccosukee team has done such a great job on pit road keeping me up front. Right there at the end, if free is fast, we just got dead-sideways. It was a good learning experience."

What is the next step in your learning process? "These radial tires, these trucks and the plates you run on them -- there is so much learning. I have great mentors, though. Sometimes you know what you want, but sometimes you need to come up and say, 'I have got no idea.'"

TAYLER MALSAM, No. 81 One Eighty Toyota Tundra, Randy Moss Motorsports
Finishing Position: 11th

STACY COMPTON, No. 60 Safe Auto Insurance Toyota Tundra, Wyler Racing
Finishing Position: 13th

DAVID STARR, No. 24 AutismSpeaks.org/Zachry Toyota Tundra, HT Motorsports
Finishing Position: 17th

Can you talk about this weekend's race? "We had a great truck with some bad luck. What a frustrating trip this whole race was. Our right rear quarter panel cut in two and cut our tire down. My Tundra was great, we just had no time to do anything. This weather did not cooperate at all."

GABI DICARLO, No. 90 Great Clips Toyota Tundra, Stringer Racing
Finishing Position: 18th

SHANE SIEG, No. 15 Samsung Instinct Toyota Tundra, Billy Ballew Motorsports
Finishing Position: 19th

TERRY COOK, No. 25 AutismSpeaks.org/Harris Trucking Toyota Tundra, HT Motorsports
Finishing Position: 20th

TODD BODINE, No. 30 Ventrilo Toyota Tundra, Germain Racing
Finishing Position: 21st

Was the wind a factor in your incident Saturday? "I don't think the wind was a factor. The Ventrilo Tundra was really good at the start of the race. I know when you have trucks racing that close, you can't pinch off the other truck. The air was taken off of the Ventrilo Tundra and I tried to save it but couldn't. I don't think wind was a factor, I'll just call it driver error and hope that I can give the Ventrilo Tundra a better show when we take it to Bristol in August and Gateway in September."

T.J. BELL, No. 11 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra, Red Horse Racing
Finishing Position: 22nd

How was your truck in today's race? "The truck was pretty good there. We started in the 12th and moved back a bit. It was a little loose with the green race track. We battled hard with Ricky Carmichael. I think we had a little better truck than him. Our truck was very line-sensitive, so I had to run the bottom. When we got up to some trucks, he got back up to us, got underneath us and loose. The Red Horse Racing team did a great job getting the thing back together for some more points, but I'm looking forward to a good run at Charlotte."

TIMOTHY PETERS, No. 17 Strutmasters.com Toyota Tundra, Premier Racing
