"It's so disappointing to have a day end like this. We had such a strong car at the beginning of the race, I thought we had a chance to win it. We broke a half-shaft on the first pit stop. The guys did a great job to get it fixed and get us back out there. We got a few more points by doing that. The Team Target guys have given me such fast cars this year, we'll just have to go out there and try to win the last three races."
