@MIKE BLISS, No. 11 Ridemakerz.com Toyota Camry, CJM Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

How was your car towards the end of the race?

"It tightened up a lot. On the long run there it got real tight and on that last restart it was pretty tight. It was a good run for this CJM Toyota Camry. I'm happy. I'm really glad that on Monday I got the call to drive this No. 11 car and the Ridemakerz.com car was good for second. I'll take that."

Would you have had anything for Clint Bowyer if the race was a little longer?

"You know, I thought on the restart I had him and I guess it ran out of fuel when we went back green. It got back though. So, I guess we were low on fuel. I don't know. It was pretty tight there at the end."

How quickly did you get used to this team?

"Paul Wolfe (crew chief) and the car chief and a couple guys I worked with at Armando Fitz's -- and we ran a whole year together. So, I know all about how Paul (Wolfe) thinks and he knows what I think. It pretty well jelled pretty fast."

Are you happy with the second-place finish?

"I am. I came in here not really knowing what to expect. I saw the 29 (Clint Bowyer) a couple times and you just had to hit your marks right and you could gain a couple cars on him. You just got to hit your marks right."

What do you think happened to Kyle Busch's car?

"I think his car looked pretty loose. He took off and left us. I don't know if the race track freed up for him. He was pretty loose. I would say we were a little bit snugger where I could drive up off the corner a lot better."
