"It's hard to be the Lone Ranger out there. If you look at the race, the top five were all team cars and I didn't have a teammate in the race or anybody to work with. I am really proud that I was able to run up there with those cars knowing how important it is to have help. I was involved in the wreck at the end so I ended up cutting the right-front tire and that caused us to limp home to a 12th-place finish. Overall, though, it was a good run. I learned a lot and I thought I drafted pretty well. This was a good start for our Dow Chevrolet team. We learned things that we can use during both the Duel's and Sunday's Daytona 500."
