DENNIS SETZER , RACE WINNERS PRESS CONFERENCE:

"We appreciate the opportunity to be in this NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Chevrolet fully sponsors this Morgan Dollar team and us gets us where we can put these Silverado's out here and be competitive every week. We didn't make any adjustments tonight I don't think. I was just a little loose in the corners all night through the center. We stayed about the same all night. Our truck started out great and never changed during the race. It seemed to be a little bit better on older tires then some of the trucks were and it paid off with some dividends for us. It was perfect for us when the caution came out- we had our first stop around lap 80 and I think the caution came out around lap 120. Everyone was thinking about coming in, pitting again and putting four tires on to go the rest of the way. When you are a crew chief and you have a pretty dominant truck it's really easy to make a decision. Our guys gave me a great pit stop and we got right back out front.

"We started behind Sprague and followed him for a while until we could get by him. We got a couple of sprinkles and could see the lightning off of turn three but the weather never affected the track. I love racing here at night -- it's a great facility and I had fun racing here and hope the fans enjoyed it as much as the competitors -- especially when it's under the lights.

"It was pretty awesome -- we kept getting better as our tires worn and we were really consistent -- I'm not a speed demon on qualifying runs but set up for the race and it really seems to be paying big dividends for us. We caught Sprague in some traffic there and were able to slide by him. We were real cautious in the lapped traffic out there. When you have a truck that good you can't do something stupid."
