JUSTIN ALLGAIER (No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger) Finished Ninth “The Verizon Dodge guys did a great job all day. We felt we found some stuff toward the end of practice yesterday and thought it would be good for the start of the race, but unfortunately it didn’t have the lateral grip, side bite we needed to keep the pace they were running. We tried to hold our own there at the beginning, but unfortunately, we lost too many spots. We got the car fixed and back where we needed to be, but we had lost a lot of track position. It was a great job in the pits by the guys; they did a great job all day long. It’s unfortunate we finished ninth, we felt like we could have finished a little higher than that. Obviously, the 18, 20 and 60 were in a league of their own today. I don’t know where we would have ended up, but I think track position is so important here. It’s a top-10 finish and we didn’t lose too many points to all these guys.”

BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger) Finished 17th “Just a little bit of an off-day for our Ruby Tuesday Dodge today. The same thing happened to us in the spring and I’m really not sure why. The car really fell off in the middle of the race for some reason. We just need to go back and figure it out. That’s the comfort of having a nice point lead. When you don’t have your best day, there’s comfort in the lead that you’ve already built.”

WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE CONTACT WITH THE 33? “I looked down at my gauges real quick and everybody had stopped. We caved in the right-front fender and had to come to pit road twice to fix it. That cost us a bunch of track position and with the damage on the front end, a lot of aero too.”

DID THE TRACK OPEN UP ONCE IT GOT RUBBERED IN? “No, not really. I thought it may a bit, but it really just stayed pretty much the same.”
