No. 16 Albertsons Toyota Tundra, Xpress Motorsports
Finishing Position: 3rd
Can you talk about your race today?
It was good to get a top-five. I feel like we're a top-five team week in and week out. We've just had a rough couple weeks. It's good to start to get some consistency and some good finishes. Of course you want to win every race, but third, given the circumstances that we had, was good. We started off and it was teamwork all day. Just make the right adjustments in the pits. Have good pit stops. Stay out under green. We were going to come in the next lap when the caution came out. That helped us out a lot. We were a long run truck. We were really good the longer and longer we went. It seemed like we would start off a little slow, but at the end of it, we were running a couple tenths faster than them and started to pull back the gap that they spread on me. I just wish this race was a longer race. I think with another 50 laps, we probably would've kept moving forward and forward. Our truck got better and better. It would've been interesting to see if it was a longer race. Jeff Hensley (crew chief) made good calls and we had good pit stops. The Albertsons Toyota Tundra was really good when it counted -- and that was at the end."
What was the toughest part of the race for your broken wrist?
"Going through the gears was hard, and it was just hard in race situations. Once I went into the corner, I was pretty much stuck there. I couldn't change the line or juke to get to someone's quarter panel. Ultimately, that's why I got into Todd (Bodine). I was established and rolling the center better because he was tight and I couldn't do anything once I ran up on him other than hit the brake. You just can't afford to do that with these restrictor plates. It's just so much momentum. It was a good day, though. I'll take a top-three with a broken wrist any day."
