"I'm glad I was in the battle for the lead. The last four or five weeks have been really bad, so to get back on track is great. We did everything we could. The 25 was better than we were late in the race. I'm disappointed we didn't win the race, but I can sleep tonight knowing that I drove my heart out but just got beat. Sometimes you do that. He kind of got me bottled up behind lapped traffic there and took advantage of it and won the race. No disappointment in finishing second."

"We knew we had a pretty good race car last night and we were just able to move our way up. I thought I had a top-five race car last night and I knew the 25 was going to be tough, and that's the way it worked out. I can't say it enough, it just feels good to get back on track. I want to win races, naturally, but I just want to get back on track as well, and that's what we did tonight. I hadn't even been mentioned in a late-race battle for the lead in a long time, to even be a part of leading laps and being a part of what we were a part of tonight is a step in the right direction."

"The racing conditions were great. This is an awesome race track, awesome facility. We've actually run in the top five both of the times that we've been here, but we haven't been able to close the deal. Our performance has been good here, but we haven't finished like we need to. It didn't surprise me to have a good race car. The guys did a good job on pit road. That's one of the things that we've been practicing on. We've got some young guys on pit road and to go in third on that last stop, right in the heat of the battle, and come out third, it was really a testament of how hard they're working, too. This place is a great place to race. If you're faster you can pass, and if your car is pushing you can find a groove up top; it's not one groove. NASCAR needs to take a good look at this place and give it a lot foe credit because it is really, really a great race track."
