Sage Karam, No. 22 Comfort Revolution/Brantley Gilbert Chevrolet:  "Hats off to my team - they did an awesome job.  The Dreyer & Reinbold Kingdom boys gave me an awesome car.  It was stable all day and I was able to come from the back and get a top 10!  150 laps straight of green-flag racing takes a toll on you.  My foot even hurts from the vibrations of keeping it flat for so long.  Now I know why they say this is the hardest race to win in the world.  We were looking good, we were running in eighth when a yellow flag came out right when I pitted.  We ended up going a lap down and had to get the wave around and go to the back of the filed.  It messed up our strategy, if we were out for another lap or so I believe we could have been in the top five.  I am so grateful and blessed to have just run in the Indy 500."
