Jack Sprague, No. 16 Chevy Trucks Silverado (Started 4th, Finished 35th):

Retired from race on lap 110 with blown motor -- "Our Chevy Trucks Silverado was awesome. We were a little tight at the start of the race but the guys made some great changes and we got better. We needed just a little more on the next stop. We broke a valve spring and then the whole bottom end let go. We just can't seem to catch a break. It is disappointing for us because we took a hit in the points as well. We will just regroup and come back at Kansas."

Dennis Setzer, No. 46 Chevrolet SilveradohStarted 12th Finished 3rd):

"It was a good run for us because we weren't that good at the beginning but Danny (Gill, crew chief) and the Silverado guys made great adjustments and we kept getting better as the race went along. We knew that Ted (Musgrave) was strong and if he could get through traffic he would be fast so we hoped there weren't any more yellows but that isn't how it played out. But we got a good solid finish in our Silverado and it helped us in the points so we will head to Kansas and run as hard as we can there. You are always disappointed when you don't get the win you thought you might have a chance for, but it was still a good run for us."

David Starr, No. 75 Spears Manufacturing Silverado (Qualified 20th, Finished 33rd):

Retired from competition due to an accident on lap 138 -- "It was just a bad deal out there we got hit by a spinning truck (#22) and it tore the entire right suspension out of our Spears Silverado. We didn't have the best run tonight, but Dave (McCarty, crew chief) and the guys had made it much better and we realistically had a top-ten run going. It just seems like we keep having bad luck, but we will keep at it and things will go our way. We will make a hard run in Kansas."

Matt Crafton, No. 6 GM Goodwrench Silverado (Started 16th, Finished 10th):

"We had a good run going in our GM Goodwrench Silverado but we just got tighter and tighter on long runs. By the checkered, we were so tight; it was all I could do to hang on to it. But we held on and got another top-ten finish. We keep improving and improving each week, we will get up there at the end of a race racing for the win."

Shane Hmiel, No. 15 Spondivits Silverado (Started 5th, Finished 12th):

"I am really disappointed for the team, they have worked really hard and we had such momentum going. I don't know what happened out there, I thought I passed him (#24) clear but I don't know, we ended up making contact and I spun (running 4th). It is just hard racing. It always is in the NCTS. We will be back in Kansas and try it again. I just hate it for Billy Ballew and Spondivits who helped us this weekend. We had a fast Silverado out there."

Kelly Sutton, No. 02 Team Copaxone Silverado (Started 31st, Finished 25th):

"We worked on the Team COPAXONE0x00ae Chevy on each pit stop, and it came to us through the night. The truck handled well, and after a track bar and air pressure adjustment, we picked up a few ticks and gained some ground. We'll take another top 25 finish, and prepare for a pre-4th of July celebration in Kansas!"

Tracy Hines, No. 88 Menards Silverado (Started 15TH, Finished 14th):

"It was a pretty good night for us all things considered. We had our Menards Silverado running close to the top-ten all night then we spun after contact with another truck. We were able to stay on the lead lap and finish decent. I think we are really headed in the right direction with this Menards team and we will have our Silverado running better and better every race."

Shane Sieg, No. 07 Green Light Racing Silverado (Started 33rd, Finished 8th):

"It was a great night for our team. We just keep working our way up making sure we stayed out of trouble and on the lead lap. My guys made some great adjustments to our Silverado and I kept gaining spots. We were the second best Chevrolet tonight, so that is a great finish for this team."
