Sage Karam, No. 22 Comfort Revolution/Brantley Gilbert Chevrolet: "This has been such a big learning experience for me.  Everyday I'm learning something new and today was more of a race trim situation running with more cars.  I was following Hinchcliffe, and it looked like he had a bit of a wiggle in turn three, so I had a huge run going into four.  I got closer than I should have been and was below him when he went low.  I crossed his path, and I had no air on the front wing.  I had the wheel fully locked to the left trying to turn it, and once I lost it on the bottom and washed up the thing just snapped.  We were lucky to save it and get away with only minor damage.  Like I said, I'm learning every day, and thankfully I learned this today and not Sunday."
