TIMOTHY PETERS, No. 17 Strutmasters Toyota Tundra, Red Horse Racing
Finishing Position: 4th

How was your race tonight? "It was pretty wild. That's what you get in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Our Strutmasters.com Tundra really ran good. We sat on the pole. Clean air was just so important and we just got stuck back there. We just got too tight. All in all it was a great night. I have to thank Chip Lofton at Strutmasters and Tom DeLoach at Red Horse Racing -- they've given me an awesome opportunity and we're now going to Bristol."

TODD BODINE, No. 30 Ventrilo Toyota Tundra, Germain Racing
Finishing Position: 13th

What happened at the end of the race? "If the tires didn't give out (near the end of the race) we would have had a fourth-place finish with the Ventrilo Tundra. If I got close to Timothy (Peters), the truck just pushed really bad. We were definitely a top-five Toyota if we hadn't had to pit at the end."

MIKE SKINNER, No. 5 PC Miler Navigator Toyota Tundra, Randy Moss Motorsports
Finishing Position: 14th

Can you get back into the championship points race? "Well, if we run like we've been running -- of course we can. Right now, the KHI stuff with (Ron) Hornaday, Jr. -- they are in their own zip code. I've said it again, these guys (at Randy Moss Motorsports) have done a lot with a fourth of the amount of money it takes to do this right. I'm very proud of these guys. We missed it this week. We missed it right off the trailer. We never ran good in practice. We put up some decent laps. What happens is you get to thinking you're not as bad as you really are. But, I knew we were bad and we never got it fixed. Everybody at Randy Moss Motorsports worked their tails off. The pit stops were actually halfway decent tonight. I want to make sure to thank PC Miler Navigator and Exide -- and everybody that works with us -- keep the faith."
