TODD KLUEVER -06-MSC/3M Ford Fusion (Finished 10th -- Top Rookie)

"It was a solid day for us. We just had a really good car yesterday in practice, and I made a decision to change a right-front spring and it really hurt us today. I was pretty disappointed in the call that I made. Just a hard day with a good finish. We qualified 26th; the driver messed up the qualifying lap trying to be overaggressive. We just worked real hard and my guys gave me a great effort all day long, and I drove my butt off and we finished in the top 10. We've had a lot of good runs lately and not any of the finishes to go along with them, so I'm just happy for my guys."

"Well, there's always pressure, I guess for me. I'm not at Tony's (Stewart) level; I don't have championship and stuff at my house. I just race as hard as I can and that's what I can do. Until I prove that I can belong, not that you ever get to take it easy, but then maybe you can relax a little bit. I'm still very much driving as hard as a can and there's no relaxing."
