BOBBY LABONTE, NO. 18 INTERSTATE BATTERIES PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

ABOUT YOUR DAY. "The car was tight all day, but it was better than last time here."

WHAT ABOUT COMING ALL THE WAY INTO THE TOP 10 AFTER STARTING FROM THE BACK? "That was pretty awesome, I guess, wasn't it? The car was good enough to get me up there, but we got to a certain point and that was about all we could do."

YOU HAVEN'T HAD THE PERFORMANCES TO PUT YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO BE, BUT DOES THIS GIVE YOU A LITTLE OPTIMISM AND MOMENTUM GOING TO INDY? "I think it was better, we definitely beat cars that we haven't been able to beat. We've still got work to do, but I'd say that's about 25 percent better."

MIKE WALLACE, NO. 14 CONSECO PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

WHAT PUT YOU OUT? "Something with the motor, I think maybe a valve spring. We had a tire go down and had to come in early, but the crew made a great two-tire call on the yellow-flag stop before the rain and that put us back in the middle of the field."
