7.  Jimmie Johnson: “Well, so much for that Lowe’s Motor Speedway sweep this year.”

6.  Kurt Busch: “I wonder if they’ll install a lake in the infield and let Dave Burns go water skiing again?”

5.  Scott Wimmer: “Hey, BDR won at Daytona once.  I wonder if Bill still has that car around the shop somewhere…”

4.  Jeff Gordon: “Well, if I won the first restrictor plate race here, people would forget about the fact I didn’t make The Chase…right?”
