ANNOUNCER 2: That's a pretty good Monday right there, isn't it?

ANNOUNCER 3: Yes, it is.

ANNOUNCER 4: Well, Vince, he finished twice here at Martinsville. Finally gets it done, you're going to victory lane. You guys have finished second here twice. John Hunter, this race came down to a couple restarts at the end. When did you know in those last couple restarts what you needed to do, and when you got up front, did you think you had enough to hold off the 54?

- Well, we had a little bit of miscommunication on that last pit stop, when everyone pitted there and came and got tires. Jerry came on the radio and said "pit." Well, I didn't hear exactly what he said, because of static, and we had to stay out there. And I didn't know if we're going to be able to do it. My guys brought me a great Fleetwing DAB Services--

- That a boy!

- --Chevy Silverado this weekend. I can't thank everyone enough-- Dad, everyone that puts their heart and soul into this deal. And there's only four guys in our shop this year, so it's really cool to be able to come back over here to the Truck Series and-- Bo hangs our bodies back in the shop. He's back home, probably watching it on TV, so-- or he's probably at the shop, actually, working today.

So just congrats to all these guys. These guys deserve it. Finished second here multiple times, so tick-tock, we finally got a clock. So it's going to be awesome being able to take that thing home.
