DENNIS SETZER, NO. 46, MORGAN-DOLLAR MOTORSPORTS SILVERADO (2ND PLACE FINISH)

THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE USED TO DOING WELL-- ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU DIDN'T WIN? "Yeah, but you don't always get what you want. We had a good finish and the truck was good all day. We were equal to Crawford on the long runs and we just couldn't make up any ground. I thought we had a shot at him on that green-white checkered finish."

HOW WAS IT OUT THERE? IT LOOKED LIKE A REAL PHYSICAL RACE? "It was tough, but we had our little Silverado dialed in pretty good. Maybe I should have used the bumper a little bit more today because our truck had all four fenders at the end. It was a good point's day for us and the team is looking forward to Mansfield in May."

JACK SPRAGUE, NO. 16 CHEVROLET SILVERADO (3RD PLACE FINISH)

"This was a great race for the #16 Chevy Trucks Silverado. I had an awesome truck. Chris, Dave and all the guys did a great job preparing this truck. This whole team has just dug in and worked hard since Atlanta.

"The middle set of tires I had was perfect, I thought we had it dialed. Everything was looking good but after the last set of tires we got a little tight off and loose in but we were solid enough to stay near the front.

"Leading toward the end of the race is the place to be. When you lead the race you can dictate your pace and your race, and run the corners like I wanted. I could arch the truck the way I wanted but when you are racing with others in the lead pack, you have less options to choose you line and have to be more defensive.

"This third place is a momentum builder for this team; we will take it and head for Ohio. I am just so proud of all my guys, they have really pulled together and we are headed in the right direction with this Chevy Trucks team.

MATT CRAFTON, NO. 6 CHEVROLET SILVERADO (6TH PLACE FINISH)

"We had a great truck all day; I hated to see that green/white checker at the end. I really thought I had something for them. We are a new team, we are starting to gel together and I guarantee our Chevy Silverado will be a truck to reckon with the rest of the year."

ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO HEADING TO MANSFIELD? "Very, I am one of the only truck guys that have been on that track. I tested there last year with the old team I was with and we tested at South Boston which is similar to Mansfield. I'm really happy how the truck did today and I'm looking forward to having another great run in May at the inaugural event in Ohio." DAVID STARR, NO. 75 SPEARS CHEVROLET SILVERADO (9TH PLACE FINISH )

"I guess we're pleased with it, but we wanted more than that. We had a good truck at the early in the race. Just like everyone, we got tight in the center and that gets you loose off the corners. We were adjusting on it and before the first pit stop, I think the 33 truck got into us and we got into the 18. It was one of those Martinsville deal. There was a lot of paint swapping, metal bending. We tried to get up front - we came in and fixed the damage - then lost all that track position. This was a great NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race and this Spears Chevrolet Silverado team just kept digging; kept fighting and that's what this series is all about."
