"I'm proud of my Discount Tires guys, they were awesome on pit road. It was another top-five, but we came up a little bit short, nevertheless we learned a little something that will maybe help us for Homestead."

YOU GAINED A SPOT IN THE POINT STANDINGS. "Yeah, that's cool. It's going to be tight the last few weeks with Bliss and Reutimann. They've got good teams and good drivers. We'll be pleased, obviously, we're going to get all we can get and it looks like fourth is about all the best we can finish. Hopefully, we'll carry a little momentum to Phoenix next week."

YOU WERE IN THE TOP-FIVE MOST OF THE RACE AND CLOSING ON THE LEADERS. IF YOU HAD A FEW MORE LAPS, COULD YOU HAVE GIVEN CARL AND KYLE SO MORE COMPETITION? "We might have been a little quicker than the 20, the 5 had two tires. We were pretty fast at times on the top before our tires got worn out, but you never know. I think the 2 was probably a little bit better than us at times. It worked out probably the best it could."

MARCOS AMBROSE -- No. 59 Kingsford Tailgate at Home Ford Fusion -- (finished 9th, qualified 23rd)

IT WAS A SOLID TOP-10 FINISH AND DECENT POINTS DAY FOR YOU. "It was a good day for us. We fought all day. We had a fast car in practice. I did a bad job in qualifying, so we had to come back through the field. Yeah, we did good. We just ran out of laps. The best the car was the last 30 or 40 laps of the race. The track was coming to us and the car was coming to us. I'm so happy with the result. It just cements ourselves in the top-10 in points. I feel like it's been a good day for us. We can use this car now for us because it's pretty straight. We're in good shape."
