STEPHEN LEICHT -- No. 90 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion -- (finished 5th, qualified 9th)

"We had a great run. I'm really proud of all of my CitiFinancial Ford guys they did a good job today and all week. We've been good since we've been here our Fusion was running good. We were getting better and better. We were running up front and both times going down pit road they penalized us. It's a team sport and we all made a mistake. If that didn't happened, we probably could have won this thing."

DAVID RAGAN -- No. 6 Discount Tire Ford Fusion -- (finished 19th, qualified 22nd)

"Cutting the tire and having to pit under green was probably our biggest problem of the day. We just couldn't seem to rebound and had two cautions after that so we were on the wrong side of the pit strategy. Once you get down that one lap or two laps here on the road courses, you just can't seem to rebound. With a top-20 finish, we brought the car home in one piece. I guess we'll go to Pocono and show them what we've got there."

TODD KLUEVER -- No. 16 3M Ford Fusion -- (finished 21st, qualified 31st)

"We were as good as we were going to be here and road around all day and finished the race. I think the car was better than the driver. Eddie (Pardue, crew chief) and the guys did a great job putting our 3M Ford Fusion together and I'm looking forward to next week. It seems to take me a little while to get used to these road courses, so hopefully next week I'll still be in road course rhythm and we can start off a lot better. I'm a little disappointed, to be honest, after the 11th place finish in Mexico City, I thought we'd be able to do better here. It seems like it takes me one time at these tracks to really get a handle on it. Last year in Mexico City we were bad and came back and ran ok here next year."

CARL EDWARDS -- No. 60 Scotts Ford Fusion -- (finished 30th, qualified 15th)

"We just had a truck arm mount break-off on the curbs and it ended our day early. We had such a fast race car, it's a shame our day ended early. We just lost eight laps trying to repair it."
