"Thanks for getting me up here. It's not often you get to come up here when you finish 16th in a race. But for us, it's as good as a win. My first time here, and I just wanted a safe race and not ruin anyone else's race and try to learn the ropes. We just stuck to our guns. We dropped to the back early on and did it two or three times during the race. I'm really proud of the guys and have to thank Kingsford Charcoal for supporting a rookie in the Busch Series. They're a long-time supporter of Busch Series racing and it's great that they give someone like me a chance. I don't sound the same as you look to others, so they're giving an international chance to, which is really nice."

"This is definitely the most nerve-wracking (race that I've ever run). These restrictor-plate races are incredible. I've never experienced anything like that and I was very daunted by the speedway itself and the competition. I'd love to have mixed it up with these guys at the front today, but I'm in no position to do that. I've got a lot of learning to do. We're really proud of where we've come from, but I haven't been able to eat all day. I've never been so nervous to be honest with you. It's an incredible style of racing. The track was slick and the tires were hard and I was just hanging on from the first lap to the last."
