BOBBY HAMILTON (No. 04 Bailey's Dodge Ram) -- Finished 28th, second in points, 41 behind leader Ted Musgrave

"You couldn't see, but Tony (Stewart) gassed his up, and he was off the racetrack out of the way. I gassed mine up to keep getting hit from behind. I went through the smoke and Jack was stopped. He was in the smoke, too. I got hit from behind, too. The truck was crunched up pretty bad, but we did what we could with it."

TED MUSGRAVE (No. 1 Mopar Dodge Ram) -- Finished third, moved to first in standings.

"Terry (Cook) is pretty hungry, and he's got an awful big mirror in that thing. We had a really good truck. The Mopar Dodge came from way back and I'm proud of the guys the way they worked here. Coming out of here (first) in the points, that's big-picture racing. It's always fun to win here. Third is not what we're looking for, but it's pretty decent. The truck was good at the end. We made some adjustments on it. In the middle we weren't very good. It's always fun here, especially when you've got three grooves. Any time you're in the front in the points is fun. We're running good, and we're getting better and better. We've just got to keep working hard and keep the luck on our side."

STEVE PARK (No. 62 Orleans Racing Dodge Ram) -- Finished 5th

"I had a great race going with Johnny (Benson). I think I lost fourth place by a few inches. He left the door open. I didn't think he would, but we came off the corner clean and raced him to the end. It was a good job by the whole Orleans team. Two Orleans Dodges in the top 10. We're getting Brendan's team turned around. Rambo did a good job, and all my guys did a good job. I want to thank Dodge. That baby had a Hemi in it tonight. We're proud of it."

BRENDAN GAUGHAN (No. 77 Jasper Engines & Transmissions Dodge Ram) -- Finished 8th

"I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Rambo was on the radio and he kept telling me to get by the lapped trucks. So many bad things have happened. Now I know how Steve Park felt and how Ernie Irvan felt all those years. You start to get nervous around those guys you should be nervous around. At the end of the race, it was time to go. Rambo's personality on the radio so matches mine. It feels like old days. He's screaming and cheerleading. He's a Marine, so he gave it some of that. My guys in the pits were great tonight, and Steve Park was fifth -- two trucks in the top 10. I feel good right now. We're definitely headed in the right direction. Billy Wilburn did a great job for us with this team. He got us in a great position, and now hopefully Rambo will take over the reigns. We'll just keep trying to get better."
