Sam Hornish Jr. (No. 12 Wurth Dodge Challenger) Finished 6th “It was so-so in a lot of ways. We didn’t do what we needed to do as far as making the car better and we were just too free for most of the run. We were good a little bit earlier on in the runs but we just didn’t have what we needed at the end ‘cause I couldn’t lean on it. All-in-all our Wurth Dodge Challenger ran flawlessly. That’s a good thing. Our reliability has been great and we need to keep that up. Just need to get a little bit of speed, get a little bit smarter about the things that we do. We had a really good break there with only 25 laps in the race. Would have had an opportunity to adjust on the car and we took two tires and we were worried about losing a little bit of track position and we didn’t make a change and that hurt us all night long. I think that sometimes we just need to be smart about when it’s early in the race and when we should make changes and when it’s late in the race when we should just leave the car. It’s just one of those things tonight. I’m just glad that we were able to get ourselves back on the lead lap and be running at the finish. That’s what we’ve got to keep doing.”

YOUR FINISH TONIGHT IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW CONSISTENT THIS TEAM HAS BECOME THIS SEASON. “That’s the things that you’ve got to do. You’ve got to be consistent. Ten fifth-place finishes are better than five wins and two 43-place finishes. We need to keep being smart and doing the things that we’re doing. We’re chipping away at it. We’d love to do it all in about two races and be leading the points but it’s not going to happen that way. We just need to be smart about what we do.”

Brad Keselowski (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger) Finished 7th “We had an okay night. I did pass a lot of cars. We just didn’t quite find the perfect handling on our Discount Tire Dodge. I’m not sure what we were missing, just didn’t have enough. We’ll have to go back to the drawing board.”
