DAVID RAGAN -- No. 6 Discount Tire Ford Fusion -- (finished 3rd, qualified 26th by Auggie Vidovich)

AFTER STARTING IN 26TH PLACE AND CAME BACK TO A THIRD PLACE FINISH.

"Well, we actually started 43rd after dropping to the back. Auggie [Vidovich] did a great job. Our car was pretty good. The first part of the race we stopped and put tires on and make an adjustment. It was all about track position. We didn't have enough laps to do a lot of racing so track position meant a lot. We had a top five or six place car. I think there were a few other guys, Carl [Edwards] probably had as equal or better car than we had until he got jammed up. But certainly a top-five, we'll take it. It's great for the points and certainly it's a good finish to help us in rookie points also. It was a fun race for the time we were racing. Riding around under caution was pretty boring but other than that, I like this race track. It's a fun track and we always run well when we come here and hopefully we'll carry some momentum with us when we go to Texas next week."

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WITH ALL THE ACCIDENTS AND CAUTIONS?

"If you have a good car, that's what you want to do -- race. For several of us it was fine, but it was pretty disappointing to hear 'caution flag', 'caution flag.' It's just one of those races. I guess one day I'll look back and say I was there at that thing. And I didn't even cause one caution all day and that's pretty good."
