TODD BODINE, No. 30 Lumber Liquidators Toyota Tundra, Germain Racing
Finished: 3rd

Can you talk about the last lap from your perspective?

"Donny (Lia) pretty much drove him like he drives.  He's always been a dirty driver.  He did what he had to do to win.  I don't
agree with it.  I wasn't going to do David (Starr) that way, but that's the way Donny drives.  He got away with one here.  He got
his first win, it's great for him.  He's a Modified guy and I'm glad to see it.  But, if he pulls that crap with me, he's going to go
for a ride because it isn't going to fly.  That was bad racing."

Was David Starr cautious on the last lap, or did Donny Lia drive into turn one deeper than normal?

"Donny just drove it in.  I went in there my normal speed and he drove away from me getting in the corner.  He drove it in way
deep.  I knew he was going to do it, and I was trying to be ready for it.  I just didn't get in the throttle quick enough."

Can you talk about what your finish means to this No. 30 team as far as the championship?

"It was a good day.  The Lumber Liquidators crew did a great job all weekend.  We struggled a little bit, but we made up for it at
the end and got a good finish.  It was a great points day.  I still wanted to get that win, though."
