MIKE SKINNER , No. 5 Toyota Tundra, Bill Davis Racing Finished: 1st

Can you talk about your win tonight?

"The truck was awesome tonight.  I need to thank Bill Davis Racing
and Toyota for this great truck and letting me drive it.  We've been
getting beat lately, but we've been steady.  We've been
finishing in the top-five or top- 10 every week.  That's what our
strategy is for the rest of the year.  Actually, that strategy started at
the beginning of the year in Daytona, which I think has helped us.  It
was a great night.  These Toyotas are awesome."

How easy was the victory from your view?

"It wasn't that easy. I had a dominant truck, but I was just waiting for something to happen. I was waiting for a flat tire or a caution, but luckily, it all worked well. We were able to get the lead and pull away a little bit and sit on it. Jeff Hensley (crew chief) was giving me the lap times of the guys trying to chase me, so I knew what I had to run to stay out there. We just kept getting better and better throughout the race. I knew we had a pretty good truck after practice yesterday, but I didn't know it was going to be this good tonight."
