JASON LEFFLER, No. 38 Great Clips Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 11th

How was your race car today? "We usually run good here, but we ran terrible and just ended up with a good finish. Our team has been around long enough -- we have a good team but we have to get our cars better. The car handled terrible. Hopefully we'll have a better driving car at Nashville next weekend."

DAVID REUTIMANN, No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Michael Waltrip Racing Finished: 15th

How was your car today? "I had a great car until I ran into the wall with it by myself. I got tied up behind the No. 38 car (Jason Leffler) and I hadn't been behind a Busch car here like that. We were just practicing (before) and it caught me off-guard in the race how tight it made the car. I hit the wall with it. The guys came in here and busted their tails on the thing and worked and worked on it. They got it to the point where it was a car we could run among top-10. We just got caught up in a deal on the front straightaway there when they started wrecking and we had it missed. Whoever was behind us -- you know it's hard to slow down here -- they got in the back of us and wrecked us. So, we came in and they beat on it and worked on it again and we ended up 15th. All in all, I'm real proud and we had a good car. We just didn't get a chance to show how good we were. Some of it was driver inflicted early on and some of it was other drivers. I'm proud of my guys, as bent as that car was it shouldn't have been able to go down pit road straight. They got it to where we could almost be in the top-10. That's pretty impressive."
