KASEY KAHNE (no. 9 Gillett-Evernham/Budweiser Dodge; sixth driver to follow up a win in the All-Star Race by winning the Coca-Cola 600) -  "Nice to be here. We were one of the best cars all night long. We've really stepped it up in the last couple of weeks. Would like to thank Budweiser and everyone involved. It's really been a long season in the first part. Now if we can just keep it going."

Second Place - Greg Biffle - no. 16 Dish Network Ford - "This was a hard-fought effort. Man, we were hitting the race track. We had some issues going on there with the bump stops, or tires, or something there. The car was just a handful to drive one way or the other. We couldn't ever hit it. We know they are temperamental but jeez. We couldn't do anything to hit it. What a long night. Just came up a little bit short. Just wish we had another 50 laps."

Third Place - Kyle Busch - no. 18 M&Ms Toyota - "It's unfortunate, but we'll take it and go on. The guys did an awesome job on pit road tonight. We had a tire go down there. They did a good job changing the battery there."
