BRIAN VICKERS , No. 32 Dollar General Toyota Camry, Braun Racing
Finished: 3rd

Did you think your car would be this good after the accident in qualifying?

"I knew the quality of the equipment that Braun and Dollar General put behind us. Trent (Owens, crew chief) and all the guys did a great job getting the car ready, period, much less capable of running in the top-three. We had a really good night -- we were missing a couple key components, but unfortunately we just couldn't find them. For a backup car -- we'll take a third- place finish and I'm really proud of Dollar General sponsoring the race. We won four Toyota Tundras for some fans and I'm really happy about that."

Does this feel almost like a victory?

"In a lot of ways it does.  I'm really proud of the Dollar General guys and the Braun guys and all the guys on the team that put
this car together.  The way the impound deal works, when you wreck one in qualifying it's all you can do to get it ready for the
race much less capable of running in the top-three.  I'm really proud of their effort there.  It was a good top-three, but we
obviously wanted that win.  Considering the circumstances we'll take it."
