Mike Skinner Quotes

"This is a start. Maybe we should not practice anymore. We picked up 29 positions. Scott and those guys threw a set-up at the thing. I thought it was terrible at the start of the race. The car was really, really loose.

"I knew the race track was going to be loose and we did not compensate for it. The car was loose all day, but good on the exits. We were beating a lot of cars from the center out. We got two sets of tires that were bad right there at the end. We just held on.

"The Kodak MAX Film Monte Carlo needed a decent finish. We need to start picking up in the points . I just kept the fenders on it and hoped for a decent finish. We took what we could get.

"Any momentum is good. Going into Martinsville next week will be great."

Scott Eggleston

"We chased it all day. We were not the worst car here or the best. We will take the finish for the day and go on to Martinsville. We need solid finishes each week."

Larry McClure

"We had good luck here today instead of bad luck. The guys did a nice job with the car with no practice. We did not get to practice with Skinner for the race set-up.

"The car was good on long runs. Then we lost it some towards the end of the race. We had a top-10 or 12 car and we finished 12th. Itâ^À^Ùs the best finish we have had all year.

"We had a good test at Martinsville. I am looking forward to running there. If we can keep the fenders on it all day, we should have a decent day there. The finish can pump up Mike Skinner and this team. Its what we need.
