LANCE NORICK, NO. 90 AVENTIS BEHRING CHOICE SILVERADO (21st): "We had some major problems. We think we broke a rear gear. It was undriveably loose. It's too bad. These guys worked so hard this week. We were fast, one of the fastest trucks here the first of the weekend. I think right off the bat we broke a ratchet in the rear gear and the thing was undriveably loose. We just kind of hung on all day and tried to make laps. We're pretty close on some points with some people so we figured we needed to get all the points we could, so that's what we did."

MATT CRAFTON, NO. 88 XESIGHTING SYSTEMS SILVERADO (22nd): "We had a real good truck. Then we got into three, after we got into three they said there was a little bit of oil down there. We got into there, locked the front tires up and then it decided to go around on me and crashed. That's all there was to it. We came back out and tried to soldier around. I had been complaining. The leader was coming up on me, probably a half a straightaway behind me at that point and I told them the lap before that there was oil on the track. I felt like somebody in front of me was leaking oil. He was definitely smoking. I think it was 00. Finally, my spotter said right when I went in there that they were calling on the radio there might be oil in 3. We think it might have been, but it was one of those deals."
