LONG POND, PENNSYLVANIA
THE MODERATOR: We're now joined by today's third-place finisher, Tony Stewart. Tony, tell us about your run.
TONY STEWART: Not a very stellar day by any means. Ended up with a top three. You know, obviously happy about that. But would have liked to have been running in the top 3-All day and end up that way.
THE MODERATOR: We'll continue with questions for Tony.
Q. To start the second half with this top-three run here, optimism? If this place is similar to Indy, does it lead you to believe you can translate or be a little better when you go to Indy?
TONY STEWART: I don't know. I mean, we just never got good track position all day. Finally when we got good track position at the end of the day, we were decent obviously. We drove away from the 18 car. He probably said he thought we were going to run out of fuel. His lap times, he wasn't backing off of it. We were able to drive away from him at the end of the day. I'm happy where we ended up because of it. But we still got a lot of work to do I think.
I feel like there's light at the end of the tunnel, but it's still a long ways away. We still got a lot of work to do.
Q. About the last restart, could you describe, did you have any shot with Denny?
TONY STEWART: No, not really. I mean, he sailed it off down in there and slid all the way across, almost got us in the crumbs. We slid the same way. We both drove it in deep, deeper than we both should have actually.
You know, restarts were idiotic today. I've seen some of the worst driving I've ever seen in my life in a professional series right here today. So for anybody that's looking for drama for the next couple races, start looking 'cause I can promise I'm going to start making the highlight reel the next couple weeks.
I know you love that.
THE MODERATOR: Tony, congratulations. Thank you for your time.
