RICK CRAWFORD-14-Circle Bar Truck Corral Ford F-150 (Finished 19th)

YOU HAD A STRONG TRUCK AT THE START OF THE RACE, BUT ENCOUNTERED SOME ISSUES EARLY. WHAT HAPPENED? "We had an intermittent miss in the cylinder, and there toward the end it finally dropped whatever it had. No smoke, no nothing. It seemed like a minor miss, but it was running on seven cylinders. It knocked out our chances to win."

TERRY COOK-10-Power Stroke Diesel by Int'l Ford F-150 (Finished 7th)

"I'm just disappointed. I'm not mad at anybody, I'm just heartbroken. We had a truck that should have easily run in the top five, and I'm not sure, but I guess everybody took on two tires there at the end or no tires and beat us. I just hate getting beat by strategy because that was partially my call too, so we'll take."

RICKY CRAVEN-99-Superchips Ford F-150 (Finished 13th)

YOU FINISHED 13TH, BUT YOU MANAGED TO FINISH ONE SPOT AHEAD OF THE GUY LEADING THE POINTS. "Maybe we can look at it that way at the end of the year and say it was OK, but I'm disappointed. The truck was better than 13th; we got hurt by some circumstances there. We've had pretty good strategy all year and I thought we had good strategy tonight, but starting at the back of the pack and going green the rest of the way hurt us. We never got a chance to recapture that track position. It is what it is. It's one of those deals where it could have been better, but we'll just move on. As soon as we drive out of the tunnel it's all about Michigan."
