Dale Earnhardt Jr., driver No. 5 TaxSlayer.com team (finished 15th)
“The TaxSlayer car was really good, and I had a lot of fun driving it. I didn’t need a drafting partner. I could pretty much go where I wanted, when I wanted. When I went to the back, I could go straight up to the front, no problem. I told Bruce (Cook) that if he builds a car like this at Talladega, we’ll go out and win the thing. He built a great car, and it’s unfortunate that we got collected there at the end, but that’s part of it. I have to thank the 88 Cup crew for pitting the car today. It means a lot to me when they do that, I really appreciate it.”
