MARK MARTIN - No. 6 Viagra Taurus (Finished 3rd)
Press Conference

THOUGHTS ON LETTING TEAMMATES LEADING LAPS.

"I didn't see that happen.  I don't know what you're talking
about.  I didn't see it.  I know Carl didn't let me lead.  I didn't want
him to.  I told those guys, 'Don't say anything to him because I don't
want to give it back when I get it.'  We had new tires and he didn't, so
we just waited until we  got up there and went on.  We had new tires and
I don't know anything about the rest of it.  I didn't see it."

HOW MANY GUYS ARE STILL IN THIS TITLE HUNT?

"I'm in (laughter in the room)."

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING WHEN YOU HAD TO DROP BACK AFTER THE PIT ROAD PENALTY?

"When that red light comes on up there you're speeding, so it doesn't matter. We misjudged our speed today. That's the first time that it's happened. If I've got caught speeding before it was because I was over my speed, but I wasn't over my speed today but obviously the red light came on and that meant I was going too fast. So we missed that. That was our fault. I had such a good race car for once I wasn't too flipped out about it. I knew we could come back up through there. We were leading the race pretty easy at the time. As the race went on a couple three of these guys got stronger and we got back where we belonged with what we had. It was just an incredible race car today. If I could drive cars like that, I could race these things until I was 60."
