Quote Board:

 

Jamie McMurray: ”We had a pretty good car today, we just battled with the car being really loose on entry and tight through the middle most of the race.  Our last fuel run, we saved some fuel and managed to pick up a few positions in the closing laps.  I am proud of the effort from all of the guys on the Bass Pro Shops team today and all year.  I also want to say thanks to all of our partners on the No. 1 team for everything this year.  We look forward to enjoying a few days off and then we will be right back to work focusing on having a strong 2013.”

 

Juan Pablo Montoya: “It wasn’t the weekend we had hoped for or the way we wanted to close out the 2012 season. What a tough year for the Target team. We still have a lot of testing coming up and with the new car and new motors next year I’m looking forward to a fresh start. I’d like to thank Target and all the partners for their support this year and we’ll go chase that championship next year.”
