Colin Braun - No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion - Finished 2nd

TALK ABOUT YOUR RACE.

"It was a great night for me and the whole No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion team. My crew chief Eddie Pardue brought me a great car for this weekend. We started off right off the truck pretty quick. We made a few changes but tried to be smart about what the race track was going to do tonight. It think he did a great job on that. We had a really good car. I really enjoyed the opportunity to go and learn with these guys, Mike Bliss and racing with Kyle up there and Cale Gale and all those guys have a lot of experience and to race with those guys was a lot of fun. Congratulations to Kyle for winning the race there. I want to thank Mike for racing me clean. It was a really fun night for me. I learned a lot and certainly I needed a good, solid finish again. We've been having some back luck in the truck series and maybe we kind of shook some of that away here tonight."

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE RESTARTS?

"Well, I was just trying to sit behind Kyle and learn as much as I could. He's got a lot of experience at this kind of stuff. I asked my spotter, I've got Greg Biffle's spotter Joel up there spotting for me tonight. I asked him what I was doing wrong and he didn't have any great works like 'get on the gas sooner' or anything like that. I was just trying to be smart there and not get too impatient and just kind of let that happen. I think I got a little bit better there every time. I don't know, he certainly got the restarts down pretty good and that's something I've got a lot of learning left to do. I guess I'll get better one of these days here."
