Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard:

"I made a mistake. The track was breaking up and I just ran off line a little bit and lost it. It was tough. Sometimes you learn the hard way. I was running pretty well. All of my guys -- the Drive-Thru Crew -- did a great job and unfortunately I made a mistake this weekend. It was good until 40 laps to go. I am very disappointed, but you learn from your mistakes. What happened today hurt but I proved to myself that I can run up there."

Steve Horne, President:

"The whole team did a tremendous job this weekend. We proved that we can run up front and qualified well for the race. It was very difficult out there and Tony did a fabulous job. I think his day is coming pretty shortly."
