DENNIS SETZER , NO 46 CHEVROLET SILVERADO, QUALIFIED 17TH, FINISHED 2ND:

"We all worked hard as a team to finally get a shot at Ted (Musgrave, Dodge, Race Winner). He had been really good all night; I think he probably led the whole race. On that last restart, with two to go, I finally had him in site and thought I might be able to get a run on him with my Chevy Silverado and I missed a shift on the restart. That gave him about five truck lengths on me and unfortunately we didn't get a run on him.

"I am just really proud of my Morgan Dollar Motorsports team and everyone there on Team Silverado. They have all done a great job. We have worked hard on our Silverado. We came out here and tested which paid some dividends for us. We didn't have the best job qualifying today but the guys gained us a lot of spots with their great pit stops. They just worked really hard all night."

"We kept making little changes throughout the race that really paid off at the end for us. We started getting a little tight there off the corner; Eric (Phillips) made some great calls for the changes on that. These guys have worked really hard on their pit stops. They work out three or four days a week. We have a coach that comes in and helps them find little ways to keep sharp, they are already the best but they keep working hard to just be better and better. They are very professional and I really appreciate the job that they do for me on raceday. When they get me five or six spots on pit road, it makes it awful easy for me to sit in there in this little Silverado and drive around. They make my job awful easy. It was a good night for us. This is just what we needed.'
