MARCOS AMBROSE, No. 47 Armor All Toyota Camry, JTG-Daugherty Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

How was your race today?

"There's not much to say. I made a mistake on the last corner, the last lap and lost the race because of it. It's disappointing but you have to take the lumps as they come. I'm racing against some pretty awesome drivers in some great equipment. We led a lot of laps and I'm starting to get annoyed with this track, to be honest with you. That's three years in a row that I have seemed to given it away. It just took forever, this race. I must have had five or six restarts off the front there and didn't manage to mess up any of them. It's just disappointing, you know. I just feel bad for my guys, that I let them down. Congratulations to Carl (Edwards) for winning the race. He crashes the sports car on me on Saturday and then he goes and steals the win from me. I'm starting to think I don't like him. Congratulations to him. He put me on a crutch there at the end and I made a mistake."

What happened on that last turn?

"Carl (Edwards) put me under pressure at the hairpin. The track was probably a little damp there and my car just refused to turn. He got a great run down the back straight and it turned into a drag race. He was in that blind spot, that right rear, I didn't quite know where he was so I braked as light as I did and out braked myself pretty much. I couldn't make the turn, bounced the curb and Carl (Edwards) just did the slingshot off the corner. It was pretty fundamental, it's just hard racing at the end of the race. When you're on the wrong side of it, it's pretty tough."
