JON WOOD - No.47 Clorox/Wisk Ford Taurus

Not as good as we would have hoped to have had. To think that we were twenty something with thirty to go and to come back and finish fifth, and to pass all those cars. That's pretty respectable. Its good for the Clorox team, for Ford Motor Company, it's good for everybody. I'm glad we had such a good run. We always run well at Kansas. There we a lot of things that I did wrong to get back there. There are certain circumstances there that wee need to work on. But overall it was a good day. Anytime you have a top five its something to speak about.

GREG BIFFLE - No. 66 Duraflame Ford Taurus

"Yeah, Kasey did what he had to do. He chopped me down and didn't leave me any room getting into three. You know he did what he had to do to win today. Maybe if I had it to do all over again I would have nudged his bumper there in three and four a little bit to move him up out of the way. We wanted to race him clean and it was a clean race for the Subway car and all these Brewco guys. We will win another one before this season is out. Dirt Tracking off of turn two and again in four? "Yeah, it was real loose with someone on the outside of me. Kasey did what he had to do to get it done, and that's what he did."

CARL EDWARDS - No. 60 Charter Communication Ford Taurus

The tire rubbed on a piece of exposed wire holding the brake duct. Heck, its just preparation. Just a little bitty thing like that can ruin you day. I think we would have had a top three car at worst.

DAVID GREEN - No. 27 Kleenex Ford Taurus

How was the race? "We had a problem earlier there. Number one this is a brand new car that we built and brought here. It was pretty good in practice and it qualified good. Ten of fifteen laps into the race the front spring gave up on it and it just pushed and slid the tires. We did all kind of things to work around that but nothing helped. We just got really bad there and got lapped then we were able to get the lucky dog and get back up there. Then we were kinda out of tires because we really felt like it would go green for the rest of the race. We didn't have enough fun to run to the end. We did that deal so when those guys pitted we stayed out and got some track position and we took off. At the end there we were sitting ducks and it was just a matter of holding on as much as we could. Disappointing but in the big picture of things I'm sure gained a couple of spots in points. To finish fourteenth there it makes a bad day a little bit better. We didn't expect to have those issues with a brand new car, but the highlight of it was we practiced good and qualified good. That the best we have qualified in a while. By the time you fix one part of it something else pops up. Now that we have a race under our belt with this car now we will dissect what happened

"WILL YOU RUN THIS CAR AT CHARLOTTE NEXT WEEK? "No we will run it at Homestead. You know the whole spring deal that they got brings on a lot of extra work for a lot of these teams. Then you run into what we ran into today. We run as soft as we can and push that envelope on softness. The springs give up pretty easy and its just like driving a go kart. We missed it just a little bit right there but we will come back at Charlotte next week and see what happens.
