JEFF GREEN-10-Nestle NesQuick Taurus (finished sixth)-

"We had a good car. We just made adjustments this afternoon, and when the sun went down, it didn't work. It was too loose and we tried to make adjustment under a caution flag there and it just cost us way too much time on pit road and lost too many positions. Been trying to get that one car off the race track, it took 20 laps to get it off there and I don't understand that, but it's just killing us, you know, we had to pass these guys to get back up through here. Had a brake problem a little bit and just couldn't use the brakes like I wanted to. All in all it's a good night, but we still need to be in the top five, we missed it by one, but that ain't too bad."

YOU PICKED UP SOME POINTS ON GREG BIFFLE.

"Yeah, I don't know what happened there, but Greg had a bad night, but Kevin finished right ahead of me and we're racing those guys so we got to beat 'em, too, and he beat us tonight. It was good night, we brought it home clean, NesQuick Taurus is awesome, you know, just a needed a little bit of adjustment and track position. The way the tires and the tracks are these days, you gotta have track position. That just hurt us a little bit at the end."

THERE WERE A NUMBER OF PROBLEMS IN TURN TWO.

"What I saw was everybody running into each other, so it's hard to keep straight when people are pushing around. I don't know. When they filled this track again it makes it a whole different race track, and you have to adjust for that and we just missed it a little bit-probably everybody did a little bit."

GREG BIFFLE-60-Grainger Taurus (finished 37th)-

"It was a pretty good hit. I hit my arm on the door bars and I hit my head pretty good on the headrest on the seat. I'm okay. It was tough. I feel bad for the guys, they've been working really hard, they had a great pit stop that last time, got us up front and it was just too bad. I don't know what happened down there. Kevin, I just run him out of room or what happened, just racing, you know? We just got in the corner real hard."

BEFORE THE ACCIDENT, HOW WERE YOU RUNNING, PARTICULARLY AFTER THAT LAST PIT STOP?

"Well, we had just put on two tires to get track position because we knew it was going to be a shootout toward the end there. We felt that would get us a top-10 finish, we had a good enough car to do that and it was running extremely well with two tires on it. It was unfortunate that had to happen because we had a top-10 finish going for sure."
