JOHNNY BENSON, NO. 10 EAGLE ONE PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

HOW DID YOU FEEL TODAY?

"I felt really good the first part of the race. But with about 60 or 70 laps to go, I got to where I was hurting pretty bad. That's a long ways here and I started to get pretty sore. It probably wasn't fair to the team because I got to where I couldn't tell what the car was doing. We have a better race car and a better race team than what we ran here today. We'll be a lot better next week. I'm glad to get this first one out of the way, but I was really hoping for a good day."

GREG ZIPADELLI, CREW CHIEF, NO. 20 HOME DEPOT PONTIAC GRAND PRIX:

"We're doing what we can do. We're surviving. That's all we're doing. We're not racing. But, we knew it coming in here. Now, we're going to Michigan and it will be the same, dang thing again.

"I don't know what to do. When you look at the fact that we were the only Pontiac that ran in the top 15 all day - there's just something going on there. It's obvious. It's just frustrating. But, hopefully they'll fix it for us or do something to make it more even than it is so we can race the rest of the year. We can't give up the rest of the year."
