BUSCH: Bristol II: Ford teams race quotes

STACY COMPTON-59-Kingsford/Bush's Baked Beans Ford Taurus (Finished 15th) "It was a frustrating night. We had a lot better car than we finished. We can't buy a break right now. The Kingsford Ford was good. I think we had a top-six race car...

"It was a frustrating night. We had a lot better car than we finished. We can't buy a break right now. The Kingsford Ford was good. I think we had a top-six race car with the times we were running. We just can't race those people right now. I don't' get it, but good hard racing I guess. We had an awful good race car and we're just disappointed with a 15th-place finish."

WAS THE RACING TOO AGGRESSIVE AFTER THE FINAL RED FLAG? "You're racing at Bristol - nothing is too aggressive."

JASON KELLER-35-McDonald's/Snap-On Ford Taurus (Finished 12th)

TALK ABOUT YOUR STRATEGY TONIGHT. "We did what we thought the majority of the field would do. Some guys gambled and you can't control the weather and it may have hurt us in the end, but we were decently fast that time. I let a couple of cars by me; I got real loose getting in. Strategy-wise, I don't second-guess what we did."

WAS THIS A DIFFICULT RACE FOR YOU AS A DRIVER WITH ALL OF THE DELAYS? "It was tough, but we all had to deal with it. The thing is did was change everyone's strategies because a lot of guys that don't have anything to loose, they can gamble. We've got to be decently smart about it, and I don't want to say conservative, but we had to use our heads."

GREG BIFFLE-66-Duraflame Ford Taurus (Finished 2nd)

IT LOOKED LIKE YOU COULD GET TO NEWMAN'S REAR BUMPER, BUT YOU COULDN'T GET AROUND HIM. "It was. Ryan had a great car. The Duraflame car ran really good tonight. He was just protecting bottom and that's Bristol; that's what you've got to do. He was protecting the bottom quite a bit, and we were pretty much faster than he was, and so was Kevin Harvick behind me. He was putting a lot of pressure on me, but I couldn't go anywhere with Ryan Newman protecting the bottom. It was a good night for us. We wanted to finish better than what we did. Kevin let me go a few times there. I didn't see him beside me on that restart, but that's Bristol."
