Mark Martin
November 7, 2010


FORT WORTH, TEXAS

THE MODERATOR: We're now joined in the Samsung Mobile Media Center by our third-place finisher, driver of the No. 5 Chevrolet, Mark Martin. Mark, this is your 11th top 10 here at Texas which is most all time. It's also your seventh top-5 finish, best finish at Texas since 2005. Obviously a good day for you guys. Take us through it.
MARK MARTIN: It was a real good run for us today. The car was stronger than we expected in practice, or stronger than I expected for sure. It was really awesome on the long runs, wasn't quite as sharp on the restarts on new tires, and Alan made a great, great call at the end. I think it ran better on the ten-lap tires than it would have on new tires. It was a very good call. Like I say, the car ran probably better there at the end by not changing tires than it would have on new tires. It took it a while to come around.
THE MODERATOR: Did you need the restarts there at the end?
MARK MARTIN: Well, we were going to be third without it, and when those two just about tangled, I was just in the wrong position to be able to capitalize. But if had been just a little bit different mix-up, we would have been in position to capitalize on it.
My race team, CARQUEST, and Go Daddy, I want to give a shout out to them for their support through this tough summer, and it's great to be a contender again.
