RYAN NEWMAN (No. 12 alltel Dodge Avenger, Finished 7th)
"I was miserable in the car, but it was a good run for the alltel Dodge. We just got behind a little bit on pit road and that was enough. We just didn't have enough to get past those guys. We were good enough to hold our own but couldn't pass them."
KURT BUSCH (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Avenger, Finished 6th)
"The track was obviously the best idea somebody could of implemented into a half-mile. I'm happy to race on it. I'm happy to come home in sixth place, racing Dale Jr. We led a lap and he didn't so we tied for the day. That's big picture and we'll take it. Our Dodge Avenger was tight in the beginning a little loose in the middle and then we got tight there at the end. So we'll take it."
