"The Team ASE/CARQUEST Dodge was awesome today. We blew the transmission out of it around lap 92 and all I had was 4th gear. That really killed us when we made our last pit stop under green. We lost a lot of time. We made an adjustment and put two rounds of wedge in the right-rear and that really helped the truck even though we didn't have third gear. It was an awesome day for the 'Ultra Bad Boys.' We took what could have been a bad day and ran second."

"I got out front and it started getting pretty loose. Once Terry (Cook) got by me I could tell he had a fast truck. If we didn't loose all that track position I think we would have had something for him. Without that transmission problem we would have been a lot closer near the end. My Ultra Motorsports crew gave me a couple of awesome stops. I was praying that we wouldn't have another caution because with only fourth gear I would have gotten killed on a restart."

"I've been to Gateway several times and I really like the racetrack. The Team ASE/CARQUEST Dodge was fast right off the trailer and stayed that way all weekend. I have to thank (crew chief) Timmy Kohuth and all the boys. I'm really happy to be in this ride. In order to win, you have to contend and we were a contender today. We're going win some races this year."
