SCOTT, TALK ABOUT YOUR RUN.
“I couldn't be happier. Two great guys I raced with here, Johnny (Clark) and Trevor (Sanborn) – both are great racers. I was right in the middle of them at the end, and I'm happy as hell.”
DID YOU THINK YOU HAD A SHOT AT THE WIN LATE?
“If it went green for the whole time, then maybe. But there weren't enough laps left. (Clark) was good – he was real good – and I was good, too. Seth (Holbrook) and the guys did a great job all weekend adjusting on it. I don't ever do that in these races. We just don't usually have hands enough.
“We helped the car from the beginning. I feel fortunate, getting a flat at the beginning. I'm happy.”
