Driver: Jeff Ward

Car: Pagan Racing No. 21 Dallara/Aurora/Goodyear

Finish: 2nd

Jeff Ward - Quotes - We were a little bit conservative on what we needed. But, second place, I can't complain. In relaying what the car needed, how many turns of wing, I was off a little bit. I got going really good there in the middle and then, there at the end, the car changed. I just wasn't ready for that. But we didn't have anything for Scott (Goodyear). He was pretty hooked up. Second place, I can't complain for the points. That moves us right up there. The championship is looking good.

We went loose a little bit at the beginning. But I think a lot of guys did. I got rid of that and we were pretty comfortable. Traffic was tough and there wasn't much of a groove. If you went out of it just a little bit, you couldn't get back down. So it was real hard trying to get by guys. I think that's why there were a few accidents where guys were getting a bit too impatient. I almost did the same thing going under guys, you think you're going to stick, and you don't. I'm sure that happened a few times today. All in all, I think we did a good job. It was a good weekend.
