Harvick happy to finish, Gordon loose in loss
2nd place) Kevin HarvickSteve Byrnes: "Kevin, I heard you say your car was fast, but just not quite fast enough I guess." Kevin Harvick: "Yeah, the 48 (Jimmie Johnson) had a great car. They just were about a half a tenth (of a second) better than we were, and the only chance I had was to keep beside him there getting into Turn 1. Keep him pinned on the bottom, but they just kind of got hooked up there the 48 and the 24 (Jeff Gordon) and just kind of beat us down into Turn 1. The 48 cleared us, and I was able to drive back around the 24. "But a good night for our GM Goodwrench Chevrolet. It's still rolling. We were 0 for 5 before this (in the all-star race), but any time you're that close to winning, you want to win. But (crew chief) Todd Berrier and all the guys gave us a shot to win. Put two tires on, and the car still handled good. Got a good car still at the shop so we're ready to go."
3rd place) Jeff GordonSteve Byrnes: "The 48 had a great racecar, but you guys weren't bad either."
