RON HORNADAY, JR., NO. 33 CAMPING WORLD SILVERADO, STARTED 6TH, FINISHED 7th: SITS 4TH IN THE POINT STANDINGS, 70 POINTS OUT OF THE LEAD)

"We were just tight for most of the race. Rick Ren (crew chief) and the guys made some adjustments during the race and freed our Camping World Silverado up. We lost track position in that deal early in the race but we were able to make that up. At the end, I tried to make a run to the front towards the end, but just couldn't get there. All the guys on this Camping World crew worked hard today. I can't thank Kevin and DeLana (Harvick) enough for all they do for us. There is a lot of racing left this season so we will just go get them next week.
