DAVID REUTIMANN , No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing Finished: 3rd

Can you talk about your race?

"Our car was pretty good today.  Everybody that worked on this
car did a great job.  We lost a little bit on our tires there at the end,
but I was pretty happy.  It was a lot of fun."

Were you waiting for Kahne and Leffler to make a mistake to capitalize for the win?

"We were kind of fading there at the end of the race because we were on old tires. I wasn't waiting for them to get into each other; I just didn't have the tires to make any good runs on them. I think every driver hopes that they'll rough each other up and slide by, but I wasn't waiting for it to happen. I knew I had to keep as close as I could to them. I think we ended up okay."

What happened when you got into Leffler at the end of the race?

"He had a run on the No. 9 (Kahne), but had to check up to keep from getting into him. I had a run and got into him. I don't think it had any outcome on the race, like it did with us at ORP. It was a little different."
