BOBBY HAMILTON (No. 4 Square D Dodge Ram) -- Falls to second in standings, one point behind Dennis Setzer
"I knew it coming in here. They did a great job resurfacing this place, but the speeds are almost too fast to race. It was a heck of a race for the fans, but I've always said it's easier to be chased. Now I've got to chase and they've got to worry about it. We're going to win this thing. They're talking about firing their crew chief, and I'm trying to hire him. They've all kinds of turmoil going on over there. Me or Ted one is going to win it. They haven't got a chance. I'll guarantee you they're worried about Darlington and Homestead.
"We'll get a top five at Phoenix. I don't care. I'm trying to win it for Dodge. I promise you they don't pay enough money for me to get up on stage and sit there for two hours. I'm just trying to win it for Dodge. I passed some guys on the outside today. It's a great racetrack. It's going to be a heck of a Cup race. I thought it was a great race today. It's still Martinsville. We had a lot of crashes today, but fans like to see crashes. We can't
crash on mile and a half tracks any more because we hurt people real bad. We'll just come here and do it all and give fans their money's worth. It's a great racetrack. It's a great place to come to. There will be two grooves tomorrow. There will be faster cars out there and they'll be running two wide and keep the marbles blown off.
"I'm the same every week. The minute you worry about that stuff.... look at Dennis. They've been worried about it, spying on me and stuff. They've been falling back every week. We have to wreck to give it to 'em. I'm not worrying about it. We started points racing the last race. We came in here points racing. Now all we've got to do is go win the last three, which we've won Homestead last year. We've won every Darlington we've ever been to and we finished fifth at Phoenix. What do we have to worry about?"
CHAD CHAFFIN (No. 18 Dickies Dodge Ram)
"That's the way racing is. Everybody can't win and run in the top 10. I got in that wreck on the front straightaway. I don't know who caused it or what happened, but I came off turn four and the track was blocked. I went to the inside and there was a hole for an instance, but I ran into it and busted the radiator. We could have gained some points today, but it didn't kill us too bad. The guys around us had trouble to. It would have been great to have picked up some."
STEVE PARK (No. 62 Orleans Racing Dodge Ram)
"The Orleans Dodge was pretty decent at the start of the race. I guess it turned out to be an OK day for us in the points. It was an ugly day on the track, but it looks like the guys we were racing in points had a bad day too."
