JASON KELLER-22-Miller High Life Light Ford Taurus
YOU HAD A SOLID RUN UNTIL YOU HAD TO PIT. WHAT HAPPENED? "Something cut the right rear and I couldn't tell if it was actually down or just stuff on the tires when it went back to green. It's kind of the way our luck has been all year and it's a bummer. We had the strategy down right. We did everything right, but have a little luck on our side tonight."
WAS THE RACING TONIGHT TYPICAL OF IRP? "It was about like usual. It's kind of a bummer. We did everything right. We caught the race track about halfway through and used the right pit strategy where we were going to be there at the end. I'm just kind of bummed out right now."
BOBBY HAMILTON, JR.-25-Team Marines Ford Taurus
"We've been tight here the whole time. A couple of times during the race we were tight, and at the end I just couldn't run with them. I was scooting the right front so bad. I guess it's another solid top-10. I'm just so tired of not winning a race; it gets frustrating. But, all we have to do is keep trying."
STACY COMPTON-59-Kingsford/Bush's Beans Ford Taurus
"The guys made some good calls, but we could just never get going like we needed to. We stayed tight the whole night and I'm a little disappointed. We've always run so good here, and I think this is the worst that I've ever finished running. It's a little frustrating, but, still, the Kingsford Ford was OK, but we still have some work to do."
WERE YOU SURPRISED BY THE WAY THE CAUTIONS FELL TONIGHT? "Cautions breed cautions, and it looked like after everybody finally calmed down, we could get a long green-flag run. Cautions breed cautions and everybody gets a little crazy. It's short-track racing and everybody is ready to go. I was actually there weren't more cautions spread apart, but it was typical IRP."
