TED MUSGRAVE , No. 9 Team ASE Toyota Tundra, Germain Racing Finished: 1st

How was your race?

"We let a few of these get away from us here at Texas. We've had a flat tire and a loose tire -- where we finished second. It's a bittersweet victory I guess, to have something like that happen and we win the race. We can finally say we won in Texas after so many tries."

"We were a little different on the sequence of pit stops and the tire wear. I led a lot of laps and then the 5 (Mike Skinner) got by me and he's running for a championship. So, we wanted to keep our nose clean and I was hoping we could race him back. Then, the caution didn't come out and we had to stop for fuel early . I was hoping for a top-five at that time. You play your cards right and it comes to you."

"This is awesome for the guys on my team to get a win. We were close a lot of times, but it's farewell. At least we were able to give them the checkered flag. I get two more shots at it. Mike (Abner, crew chief) is doing a heck of a job and the guys are pumped up. We're running good and hopefully we'll be able to get them again in Phoenix."
