"It was a great day for us. Obviously, we want to win races but it's more important to win championships. Sam (Hornish) had a great car today and we just didn't have enough to catch him today. Team Target did a great job all weekend and we gained ground on Tony (Kanaan) in the championship. We need to concentrate on the points championship and keep our eye on the prize. The team gave me great pit stops today and kept us close. I'm looking forward to Nazareth next weekend. We've done well on the short tracks this year and it's also the place where I got my first win."

Tomas Scheckter -- No. 10 Target Toyota
Start -- 7th
Finish -- 10th
Point Standings -- 8th -- 266 points

"We had some trouble finding the handling on the car. It was pushing really bad at the beginning of the race and we made a major wing change on the first pit stop. It helped out quite a bit, but we just weren't able to make up all of the positions that we lost at the start. It was a long day for us, that's for sure. It's disappointing to have a day go like this, because all of us just want to win races. We'll get things turned around and get ready for Nazareth next weekend."
