"We were just too tight - too tight in the center all day. One time we got it about right, but other than that it was just too tight in the center. (On a driver getting an automatic lap back on yellow flags.) I think it's bullcrap, really. I mean, if you're a lap down I don't say you give them a lap back. You know, if you got a lap down you need to stay a lap back unless you can race your way back into it and earn it. So, I don't like it the way it is."

"We were just too tight to really make a move up through the field. We hung on and got a top-10. We've just got to finish in the top-10 every week from here on out, and get as many top-fives and a couple wins like I've been saying. We were just too tight all day to really make a run at it like we needed to. We freed the car up all day long. We made an adjustment every pit stop. On a couple of stops we made some big adjustments. Still, we were just too tight at the end.
"When the last caution came out we pitted for two tires. I think the No. 48, the No. 20 and No. 16 got by us on four tires. But we got by the No. 88, 21, and we probably should've gotten by that No. 17 to get a ninth or an eighth place finish. We might have done a little better if we had taken four tires on that last stop, but I doubt it. Track position is still critical, as we know. So, we got a top-10. That's all we can say that's good right now.

"There at the end we just got really loose and couldn't go nowhere. We ran good for the guys early, but we just couldn't keep it going."
