JASON LEFFLER POST RACE QUOTES-

"We struggled from about the middle of the race all the way until the end. It was kind of ironic because right after Ted (Musgrave) spun, the Team ASE/CARQUEST Dodge just kind of went away. We had problems getting the truck to turn in the center of the corner, but the 'Ultra Bad Boys' did a great job all weekend. I just tried to hang in there and get a good decent finish."

"I was just trying to stay out of trouble and be there at the end when it counted. Finishing sixth here at Martinsville is all right. I'm just glad we were able to finish this time. It was a good points day for us."

"It was pretty rough out there, especially at the end. At that point, you just have to go. After a long, frustrating day you just tend to get aggressive at the end trying to get the race over with and get as far up as you can. That's just racing at Martinsville."

"It was a good day. We had a great truck yesterday in qualifying and Happy Hour where we felt we could run up front if we could just stay there. Even at the end, we were just off a little bit. Those guys that ran up front all day really deserved good finishes. We'll work hard in these next couple of weeks and go on to St. Louis."

"I looking forward to going to St. Louis in a couple of weeks where we can race a little harder and if you're faster, it's a little easier to get around some of these guys. I'm just glad to have gotten a decent finish and bring the Team ASE/CARQUEST Dodge home in one piece."
