long way towards building the confidence of this team that a world of opportunity awaits for the remainder of this season and all of the 2012 season to come.

Team Manager Mike Johnson: "After the heartbreak at the Glen last weekend, I think this win really show's the strength of this team in the way we were all able to keep pushing and get our second win of the season. This is the first win for our new car, and what a relief it was. For the second race in a row our pit stops were the best in the field and kept us in the lead through both stops. Saying that though, this race was a lot more about the great job the driver's did. Ronnie lost his father on Sunday and took the lead on the first lap and never looked back. Robin had the #70 never more than 3.4 seconds behind and had to keep them there for an hour and twenty minutes. We had a great set-up, great pits stops and once again we did everything right, but the driver's really made us look good today. "

Bremer expressed his appreciation for having been invited to be a contributor to the team?s second win, which came just days after a personal tragedy. "I got a really good start and was in second place after the first corner and in front a few turns later." Bremer said, "The team gave us a good car and although we were not the fastest car we won with good teamwork and Robin ran a really good stint that carried us to the win. It has been a tough week for both me and the team. They lost the victory at Watkins Glen last weekend and I lost my father on Sunday. It was good for us all to finally succeed."

Liddell: "The last two weekends have seen a lot of green flag racing and this has favored the all professional driver lineups. Ronnie opened with a great stint getting into the lead on lap one and from there, although it appeared that we were not ultimately the fastest car, we had opened a small advantage which set us up for the win.

This team has weathered the days of broken parts and bruised hearts this season, but there can be no denying that heart still beats to be the best.

"Whilst we are out of the team and driver?s championships (for 2011)," said Liddell, "it was a good day for Chevrolet and needless to say we will be going all out to help them win the manufacturer?s title at Mid-Ohio."
