DAVE BLANEY, No. 10 Fan1st.com Toyota Camry, Braun Racing Finished: 3rd

How does it feel to get a top-three today?

"That's a good run for us. We've been caught up in some trouble the last couple of races, so this obviously helps. Today was a good day, and we'll take a third. Jason ran great all day and David had a strong car all weekend. The Camrys were fast and looked pretty good out there. We got bumped their early in the race and have to overcome that, but the team did a great job to get us back up there."

Would you have had a winning car if you weren't involved in the early-race spin?

"I'm not quite sure how we would've ended up, but Carl (Edwards) was definitely the best car out there today. We could run with him later in the runs, but not right at the restart. For whatever reason, we'd get the car a little too free early in runs free and had to make up some ground as the laps wore on. Overall, it was a good race for our team and really shows what the Braun Racing team is capable of."

How does this race fit in to the championship picture?

"This race was good for us points-wise, but you know that Carl is always going to run up front and in the top- five. Maybe he'll help us out a couple of times and break or something, but he's got a good team so we just have to get up there with him, stay consistent and run near the front."
