JUAN PABLO MONTOYA (No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge Charger) Top Rookie

"I saw a car flying, and as soon as I saw the car flying I checked up. We actually slowed down the car and everything. The 10 car or somebody came right in behind us and just pushed us through the whole mess. It's a little bit frustrating. Everybody at the Texaco/Havoline Dodge has done a good job all weekend.

"We had a fast car. It was just a part of racing. I think we had a car to win the race today. We were very conservative to start with. We didn't know what the condition of the car was going to be like, so we were just being careful and riding. Every time somebody got their nose in I just pointed them through. We went a little too conservative. We were too tight. That lap I made up three spots in one lap and that was pretty good. Welcome to NASCAR I guess."
