BOWYER QUOTE: “"That was a crazy day for the 5-hour ENERGY team, but I'm glad we ended up where we did. The Toyota/TRD engines looked strong today. We were having a little issue with our temperature, but we got it figured out and finished strong. I'm happy for Joey Logano - that's a big win for him and the Toyota folks. I wish Mark Martin could have held on and got the win for the MWR guys, but overall it was a solid day. That should help us in the point standings."
