KERRY THARP: We're going to roll into our post race press conference right now. We are pleased to be joined by Mark Martin, driver of the No. 8 U.S. Army Chevrolet, posted a third place finish out there tonight. Equals his best finish since Texas, 2007.
You had a good car all night and running up top all night. Your thoughts about how that No. 8 car performed.
MARK MARTIN: Well, you know, just really, really proud of Tony Gibson and the U.S. Army team, and just want to reiterate how much of a privilege it is for me to drive the car, be a part of Dale Earnhardt, Inc.
I really want to see their faces in victory lane. I mean, they are right there. They are getting it done. You know, we were just one little whisker off of being able to get it done tonight; very close. But the car, we got off a little bit the middle of the race and lost some track position and then got the car back something better toward the end; not quite a hundred percent, but we got it better.
It was tough out there.
KERRY THARP: All right. We'll take questions for Mark Martin.
Q. Did you see what happened between the 18 and the 88, and also what happened with you earlier?
MARK MARTIN: You know, I could see what was happening up there, but I was having to drive my own race car. So I can't describe it; I can't tell you exactly.
And I didn't hear your second question. Just felt like some of the lap cars were disrespectful today, tonight, that's all.
KERRY THARP: We appreciate it very, very much. Good run out there tonight.
