Start -- 1st
Finish -- 18th

"I don't know what happened. Something broke on the car, I saw sparks and then I hit the wall. We had such a great car out there tonight. I have to thank Team Target for giving me such an awesome race car." (On the pit fire) "I think that the vent hose got stuck on the car. Luckily, Andy's (Andy Natalie -- Fueler) OK and that's good. We had a dominating car tonight, but I'm sick of dominating. I want to win one of these races that we lead laps and have the car to beat."

Scott Dixon -- No. 9 Target Toyota
Start -- 2nd
Finish -- 6th

"We struggled a little bit tonight. We couldn't find the perfect balance on the car. The car was loose on restarts and then as the run went on the car began to push. But, it's not a bad finish for us. We got some championship points, it just wasn't our night."
