Charlotte: Dodge teams race quotes

BOBBY HAMILTON (No. 4 Square D Dodge Ram) -- Finished 10th, 4th in points "We just needed gas, and we had to come in to pit. We had a good truck. I'm pretty sure we had a truck that could win. We had to come in and put gas in and we dropped back...

BOBBY HAMILTON (No. 4 Square D Dodge Ram) -- Finished 10th, 4th in points

"We just needed gas, and we had to come in to pit. We had a good truck. I'm pretty sure we had a truck that could win. We had to come in and put gas in and we dropped back to 30th. We lost some points to Dennis Setzer, but it's too early right now to worry about it. Our truck was as good as it was at Atlanta, but I think everybody else was better, too. If it had been a daytime race we would have been better. There's more grip at night, but we'll be all right. We've got 20 races to make it up."

STEVE PARK (No. 62 Orleans Racing Dodge Ram) -- Finished 12th

"We did a good job missing the stuff in the beginning, and that's the kind of stuff that's been taking us out all year long. We just had a little bit of luck on our side. It seemed like they were aiming for me or something. I stayed on my toes and tried to miss 'em. We got to the end and had something to race with with the fenders still on it. We were decent. We made a big improvement from yesterday. We've still got to improve a little bit more, but we're getting closer to the top 10."

CHAD CHAFFIN (No. 18 Dickies Dodge Ram) -- Finished 30th

"I couldn't believe NASCAR didn't give us a caution. I just wanted to see if they could see our truck. I thought maybe this paint scheme was camouflaged into the track or something and they couldn't see it. We stopped on the track, and that wouldn't even do it. I'm going to get my wrist slapped for that, but I just couldn't believe they didn't give us a caution. Everybody on the team did a great job, and I'm just proud to be a part of it. Strategy hurt us tonight. We had to pit when everybody else didn't, and it hurt Bobby and us both. He was able to come back to 10th. We were a few trucks behind us, but I think we could have muscled our way back up through there. It's disappointing and another blow in the points. Geoff Bodine just ran over us, and I really don't understand. It wasn't like we were racing for position. We were wounded and he just flat ran over me."

TED MUSGRAVE (No. 1 Mopar Performance Dodge) -- Finished 31st

"We came in to pit and they told me not to go until they told me. I waited and they told me to go, so I took off. Wrong time. Todd Bodine was coming in and it clipped the right front right off the truck. It bent all the steering, and we were done from then on. You've got to be heads up in the pits. They tell you to go, but they've got to be looking back. We had a good truck in the beginning. I think we had a top five truck for sure. We were coming to the front, and then that incident happened on pit road. I'm doing all I can do."
