Letter of the Race: Sunday's Citizen Solider 400 was brought to you by the letter B for "Butt kicking." It is very rare today that someone could very nearly put everyone except the top 5 a lap down in a Sprint Cup race, but it very nearly happened on Sunday. Especially after Jimmie Johnson fell back because of his speeding penalty, nobody was catching the No. 78. - Phil Allaway
Quotes to Remember: Citizen Solider 400
"Today I'm just thankful to have a great team, to have been able to lead lap 400 and get back to victory lane at a track that's so special to me." - Martin Truex, Jr. race winner
"Definitely proud of the effort this whole Mountain Dew group, it's really cool to have Mountain Dew on the car this weekend and some different colors for us. Really cool brand to be a part of and proud to support their colors first and foremost, but it's been a decent weekend overall. We've been working on our car throughout the weekend and I feel like we got it the best we had had it there two runs before the end, which I guess was a good time to try to get it with that long green flag run things kind of worked out for us to get a couple of extra spots that would have been hard to get otherwise. I'm proud of the effort. Really really cool to move on this weekend, I'm proud of that like I said, this group has been doing a really good job. I'm proud of all these guys and we are excited to get on to Charlotte." - Chase Elliott, finished third
"Just to proud of this AAA team. We didn't panic. I had a lot of people telling me not to worry. We didn't have a good practice, and we had a fast race car today, a really fast race car." - Austin Dillon, finished eighth
"There wasn't much we could do. I cut the right front tire down and got in the wall and still had good speed in the race car after that but it just didn't work out. Our team has come a long way this season from where we started the year. We were pretty awful at the start of the season but then got a win at Michigan to lock ourselves in the Chase. That was good. I know we have the speed to have made it past a couple of rounds but it's my typical luck I guess, where it just doesn't work out." - Kyle Larson, finished 25th
"I think we just blew a right-front pretty bad. We were running pretty good before that and I wasn't really getting tight, I was kind of just riding around, and blew a big hole in it. We'll have to look at it and see what happened, but it's a shame. We got our car pretty good that second run and were driving up through the field pretty good. I would have liked to see what we would have had if we had a couple more chances to work on it, but we'll try to get it fixed and make some laps. It's a shame we couldn't run good today but it's a testament to our team of not starting very good and getting a lot better in one pit stop, so that's something we can take away." - Ryan Blaney, finished 38th
"Not a lot. It vibrated earlier in the race and it went away. And it's weird because engine issues usually don't go away. It felt like it had power and then I don't know about 40 laps before it finally blew up, it just started vibrating real bad. They (the team) said what broke, but I couldn't hear them over all the cars on the track. I'm not sure. Very unfortunate. It is just the way it goes." - Jamie McMurray, finished 40th (Blown engine)

Q: IMSA's 1995 visit to Road Atlanta is best known for the crash that ended the careers of Jeremy Dale and Fabrizio Barbazza. However, their careers weren't the only ones that ended that day. What else led to a retirement during that race?
