AJ ALLMENDINGER - No. 43 Best Buy Ford Fusion
"It's one of those days, and this is what we're trying to build on with the team, it was a bad day. We never really got it right. At times, I thought we were better than others, but we just struggled on fighting to get the car to turn. We were losing rear grip, but this is what we said was gonna make us a good team is to make our bad days 17th and that's where we finished. We missed the wrecks and probably had about a 20th-22nd place car and salvaged 17th out of it. That's not what we really want to be happy with, but it's one of those days that could have been a lot worse. We gained some points because there was a lot of guys in front of us that had a bad day. I think we should be OK at Martinsville. We've just got to keep working on it."
PAUL MENARD - No. 98 Pittsburgh Paints/Menards Ford Fusion
"As good as the car was earlier I'm kind of disappointed with that. We were in the top 10 all day, but we had two sets of tires that just weren't wearing like the others and that kind of threw us for a loop. We kind of messed ourselves up by taking two tires there at the end because everybody behind us took four, so we were kind of a sitting duck. All I know is that today could have been a helluva lot worse, that's for sure."
ELLIOTT SADLER - No. 19 Stanley Ford Fusion
“Today was not what we came here hoping for. This No. 19 Stanley Ford team fought hard and I know we have what it takes. We’ve got a lot of work to do and I’m hoping the testing we did at Darlington and this past week at the Little Rock (Rockingham) track will help us find better results next week at Martinsville.”
KASEY KAHNE - No. 9 Budweiser Ford Fusion
"I think we broke a lower A-Frame. I'm not positive, but something broke and it fell over on that side and went up the track. We were pretty much done after that, so it's pretty disappointing."
