Finished: 5th

Having not practiced the car, how did it handle during tonight's race? "It was okay. We just fought being loose at times and tight at others. All in all, the car drove pretty good. We had about a fifth- place car and that's where we ended up."

Can you talk about the run through the field after your pit road violation? "We had a good car. The closer you get to the front, the harder they are to pass. The 20 (Logano) managed to block us in about every time we came in. That lost us spots every time. It was my fault for speeding off pit road, but I was just so aggravated for getting blocked in. I blew that."

How hard is it to pass on this track? "It takes a long time. Track position is pretty important here. Track position is important everywhere, but this place is a pretty tough place to pass on. All in all, it was a good effort. I'm happy."
