JEFF BURTON --9-- Gain Taurus
VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW

2"It feels awfully good. We've struggled this year in our Winston Cup program and our Busch program and to come out and dominate like this means an awful lot. It puts a lot of confidence back into us and the guys just did a great job. I'm proud of them. I'm not the easiest the guy to work with, especially when things aren't going well. These guys have put up with a lot of my nonsense, but I'm real proud of them. They worked real hard and it was good to see this Gain Taurus out in front."

COULD YOU HAVE MADE IT ON FUEL? "We could have made it on fuel, no doubt about it. We were gonna go the whole way under green, but once the caution came out with three cars on the lead lap you've got to pit. There's nothing else to do but pit with only three cars on the lead lap. If you hadn't pitted, you would have been in the way so we were gonna go the whole way under green, but as soon as the caution came out we knew we had to pit."

WERE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE GUYS WHO GOT BACK ON THE LEAD LAP AND GOT TIRES? "That's the thing about guys getting back on the lead lap. Elton Sawyer got his lap back, I didn't give it to him. He beat me through the wreck. Some of the other guys, I gave it back to them. If Elton would have beat us, he beat us because he beat me through wreck. Kevin Harvick is upset because I didn't let him have his lap back, but you can't let a guy have his lap back that late in the race when they can pit and you can't pit. That's just the way it is. I'll let a lot of guys have their laps back a lot of times, but I'm not gonna do it when it's gonna hurt me."

ANY CHANGES THROUGHOUT THE RACE? "We changed a lot today before the race and we did most of the right things, obviously. We made one air-pressure adjustment and one wedge adjustment. Other than that, that's all we did."
