ALEX GURNEY, #27 Team KOOL Green Toyota/Swift: (11th with a lap-time of 1:02.985 seconds / 86.934 mph)

"It was a little frustrating because I didn't get to complete the whole thing. I missed the last eight minutes or so where a lot of guys got their quick time. After the last black flag, I came out of the pits and broke second gear, so we were done. I think we were eighth or ninth at the time. I'm still searching for that big chunk of time."
