Craig Dollansky ...“This definitely helps. We had the fastest car last night before we got taken out by a lapped car. I think that with D.J. Lindsey and Rod Fauver I’ve got the best crew I’ve ever had, and they gave me a great race car all night, along with everyone else who makes this happen: Scott Boyd, VMAC, Hoosier tires, Charlie Garrett engines, and Maxim Chassis. I was floating around on the top at the beginning of the race, so we were able to save the tires some here. I’ve been here before when the track takes rubber as the race goes on, and I just wanted to be sure I saw it in time because I’ve lost races that way before. I came back from a pretty tough injury last year, and I have to thank my family, and Dr. (Terry) Trammell for all of their support. It’s great to get back to victory lane.”
