DAVE BLANEY, No. 10 Camping World Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 30th

What happened to take you out of the race? "We just got wrecked there toward the end of the race. We have struggled with the Busch car all weekend in practice and then again in qualifying. But we thought we could at least get a decent finish today by staying out of the wrecks, but that just wasn't the case today. It's pretty frustrating because I know we're going to take a hit in the points with this one, but we'll have to try and get that back when we get to Nashville."

DAVID REUTIMANN, No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing Finished: 33rd

What happened in the wreck with the No. 77 car? "I hadn't gotten into anybody all day; I hadn't put a scratch on the car. Then the No. 77 car just tagged me from behind. I don't know what happened or why. It's just pretty disappointing. But that's kind of been the way our season has gone so far. We'll just have to regroup and keep digging. We were running okay before the wreck, but we still weren't anywhere near as good as we were yesterday. We had made some gains on it, but we were still pretty far off. I think we would have been able to get a pretty decent finish today, but we're not going to have that chance now."

JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 34th What happened in the race today?

"We had quite a day today. Unfortunately, we just can't seem to get any kind of luck on our side this year. It's frustrating for everyone on the Great Clips team. We have such a great group of guys and awesome equipment with amazing support from Toyota. We should be contending for wins every week and not fixing wrecked race cars like we have been. We'll just keep digging and moving forward and hope for a better week at Nashville."
