DAVID RAGAN -- No. 6 Discount Tire Ford Fusion (Finished 13th) -- Top Rookie

A 13TH-PLACE FINISH:

"Let's call it 12B. I hate to finish 13th and have any bad luck for tomorrow. Our goal here on the Discount Tire team is to be in the top 10 every week and we feel like it's close. The competition is just about as much in the top 10 as in the Cup side and we want to be in that top 10 every week. We felt like we were close. It's all in one piece and we felt we could have been a little more aggressive at times and really fought hard to try to get another position, but it just wasn't worth it. It was a great points day for us. I just wanted to finish on the lead lap because we've always got a lot more of these."

YOU DIDN'T HAVE MUCH ADVERSITY TODAY.

"Our race was clean the whole race other than that call on NASCAR's behalf with that caution. We were gonna kind of be set. We weren't gonna come in and we were gonna be in the top two or three with a lot of buffers between us and the other cars that pitted. Our car was better over the long runs and it came to me over time. It wasn't that super-fast the first few laps, but we were gonna stay out and with as many cautions as we were having and as difficult as it is to pass, I think we were gonna be alright and then they said that everybody got their spot. That was kind of strange, but it was a good day for us."
