San Bernardino County 200 Post Race Notes and Quotes
California Speedway --- February 23, 2007

Brendan Gaughan, No. 77 South Point Sliverado, Finished 21ST:

"As happy as I was this afternoon, I am that frustrated now after this race.

"No team is good enough to lose as much practice as we did this weekend and rebound from it. My guys did an amazing job this morning. They changed everything on the truck and we qualified fifth. We had to use the race as practice. And my guys threw everything they could at this South Point Silverado. We just couldn't get it right.

"We apologize to Chevrolet because we can be better than this. We're going to come back to Atlanta and be the team that Chevrolet knows we can be."


San Bernardino County 200 Qualifying Notes and Quotes
California Speedway --- February 23, 2007

Brendan Gaughan, No. 77 South Point Sliverado, Qualified 5TH:

"This South Point Racing team, we have such a good race team. We came here expecting a lot. We came here knowing we were going to be that good and be on the top of the board all day. When we unloaded, man something was terribly wrong. Bryan (Berry) my crew chief and Tom (Buzze, team manager) and the boys trust me. I said something was broken, that I knew that something was broken on the race truck. They tore my Chevrolet Silverado apart, they took off the truck arm, the a-arms, this crew had everything off and the kitchen sink. They found the problem. They found a couple of problems, that could have been it, you never are sure, but they changed them. You still don't totally know if that was it, but it ended up being the problem. We went out to qualify and now I am complaining it is too tight so, I am so proud of my boys. They are such a great hard working group of guys. They put it there not me.

"You can start anywhere at just about any track in this business, if you have a good race truck that is going to race well it doesn't always necessitate a good qualifying effort. The way this truck the way it qualified is also a great race truck. The difference is if we would have started this way in the first practice, we would have had the pole and led every lap. But as it turned out our qualifying effort was our first practice. Going in to the race, we are a little too tight so they will have to adjust on it but they put a bunch of adjustability in it so we should be good tonight. It is such an emotional sport, I am so happy. This is for my boys, it is for them because this is our first West coast race with Chevrolet again, this is what we consider our turf so we are going to go do all we can to win this race."
