Jimmie Johnson, No. 48 Lowe'S Chevrolet, Finished 34TH.

"Evidently he (Robby Gordon) wanted to restart in front of me and beat my back bumper off for a lap trying to get me to move out of the way and I'm trying to get my lap back, too. Coming to the green he has my rear wheels off the ground before we even took the green and dumped me before we even crossed the start finish line. I don't understand why. I got dropped kicked coming to the green; I don't understand why. I guess he's a lap down and he thought he deserved to restart in front of me because I was two laps down and I'd been racing the leaders trying to get my lap back. He beat my bumper cover off at two to go trying to get by and I wouldn't let him by. So when we came to take the green he had me sideways before we even took the green. He's trying to blame it on me missing a shift and it's just him never using his head."

RYAN NEWMAN, NO. 12 ALLTEL FORD, FINISHED 36TH.

"You can win the race if you don't get hit from behind (laughs). That's one of those deals. We just got hit from behind three or four times tonight. Our car was not bad on the short run. It wasn't good on the long run. We just got hit from behind too many times, a lot more than we should have."
