MATT KENSETH, No. 17 Affliction Clothing Live Ford Fusion (Finished 8th)

“A top-10 finish is okay. I guess that is what you want to do on your bad days. We had about a top-10 car really. We didn’t break anything and had decent pit stops and a good strategy and got a decent finish out of it.”

DAVID RAGAN, No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion (Finished 17th)

“We made a few adjustments to our UPS Ford on Friday in the hopes we could make it a winning car. I felt like the first half of the race we weren’t too bad and we were able to drive into the top-10. I really didn’t want to see the last couple of cautions come out because our Ford was really fast on the long runs. Things just didn’t fall our way. I think if we had to do it all over again and knew those cautions were going to come out we would make a few more adjustments to our car. I am proud of our UPS team and we learned something today, not through the result we had, but that we had a race winning effort for a little while and we will come back for a second time later in the year so hopefully we learned for that.”

GREG BIFFLE, No. 16 3M Ford Fusion (Finished 27th)

“The car was hard to drive but it wasn’t too bad I guess. We were able to move it up through the field but then I got too loose coming off of four and it got away from me and it spun. Unfortunately NASCAR didn’t throw a caution there and that is what killed us there.”

MARCOS AMBROSE, No. 9 Stanley Ford Fusion: (Finished 34th) WHAT HAPPENED?

“I had a vibration in third gear for about 25 laps and we tried to save it but we lost third gear and then trying to leave the pits in fourth gear we lost the clutch too. It is just a bad day.”

SAM HORNISH JR., No. 38 Long John Silver’s Ford (Finished 35th)

“Obviously that’s not how we wanted our day to go. The car was loose but we were working on trying to get it better when the oil line went. So obviously we lost a bunch of time in the garage getting that repaired. It’s disappointing, of course. But, it was good to be back in a Cup car this weekend and hopefully I’ll be back again soon.”
