Scott Dixon -- No. 9 Target Toyota

"Our car was very good and we were able to stay up front for most of the day. The fuel pickup problem ended any chance that we had at winning three straight today. It's very frustrating to have this kind of thing happen. Luckily, we were able to salvage a 6th place finish out of it today. We're still in the points race, so we just need to keep finishing races and we'll be OK."

Tomas Scheckter -- No. 10 Target Toyota

"We had an unbelievable race car today. I felt like if we didn't have the fuel pickup problem, we would have won the race today. The Target car could run anywhere on the track, but we kept having to pit early for fuel. Every time that we got down to about 10 gallons, we had to come in for fuel. We just have to keep our heads up and go onto Nashville and keep pushing."
