BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 12 Discount Tire Dodge Charger) Race Winner

"I'm happy for my Discount Tire team to be in victory lane. This team has been running so well all year that they deserve this win. I've got to thank Joey Logano; he gave me the push to win the race. It's the second year in a row that he's done that for me. He deserves some credit because he does a great job. It's just a great weekend for Discount Tire, Dodge and Penske Racing. I'm glad to be back in the points lead and glad to do it in Talladega; they have some of the best race fans in the world."

HOW TOUGH WAS IT TO RUN THE DOUBLE AGAIN THIS WEEKEND? "What was hard to do was get out of the infield care center after the Cup race. I was stuck in there because my carbon monoxide levels were too high and to be quite honest, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to run the Nationwide race. To go from that low to the high of winning is incredible."

JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger) Finished 15th

"I'm OK. The Verizon Wireless gave me a great car today. Our Penske guys build great race cars back at the shop. We felt that we had a car that could get us a top-five. I felt that we were on pace to do that before we got collected in that last-lap wreck. This was the last race for these style cars and everybody is trying to go for the win. I thought that I had that wreck missed. Whoever was behind us just didn't get checked-up enough, turned us and got us spun down on the apron. We'll just head to Richmond next week with our head held high and go for a win next weekend."

PARKER KLIGERMAN (No 42 Dodge Charger) Finished 31st

"Man, I had a fast Dodge Charger today. Brad and I worked great all day. I told him on the radio that I had a fast Dodge and was going to do everything I could to help him. We had a top-five car, no doubt. Brad and I could go to the front whenever we wanted to during the race. It was awesome. We just got taken out there at the end of the race. I'm OK. Congratulations to Brad on a great win."
