MIKE SKINNER, No. 5 Exide Toyota Tundra, Randy Moss Motorsports
Finishing Position: 2nd

How was that finish?

"I don't wish bad luck on anybody but we didn't have a second-place truck. We had a good truck - one more lap and we might have had a first-place truck. I really hate it for Tayler (Malsam), the 81 truck ran up front all night and that young man did a heck of a job. I hate it for Todd (Bodine) that he had an oil leak or something there. We finished second, we have to try to stay in the game."

Did where you start tonight's race have an effect on your finish?

"Ronnie (Hornaday) did a good job. I think one more lap and we might have had him, might have been able to challenge him a little bit right there. Man I hate for Tayler Malsam, he had a good truck tonight. Both the Randy Moss Motorsports trucks did a good job. We got stuck back there from qualifying and it kind of messed us up. I want to thank the fans, I want to thank Exide - everybody just came along. I want to thank Toyota. Triad put a good body on this truck. I just hate it - doggone it, we were close."

How do you grade your team so far in 2009?

"For the budget that we've had and the amount of people that we've had with the resources - Toyota does an awesome job and these Triad engines - man they're just awesome. Eric Phillips (crew chief) and David Dollar (co-owner), they have done a heck of a lot with a little bit."
