"(To) have Jeff Gordon come and give me a handshake as the second-place finisher means a lot. I grew up watching Jeff Gordon and specifically watching how he drove this race track and all the successes he had here, so I mean, that's really super. It's something I'll never forget."
- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Carl Edwards after winning Sunday’s road-course event at Sonoma Raceway.
"As I said on the pit box today, I remember so many times I’ve been to Sears Point, now Sonoma Raceway, but 30 years ago in 1984 I brought my SCCA Trans-Am car out here with a local driver, Greg Pickett drove it, and we won the race – the first road race that I ever entered at Sears Point and we were able to win on that occasion. It was good karma today."
- NASCAR team owner Jack Roush after his driver Carl Edwards won Sunday’s race at Sonoma Raceway.
"Gosh, I wish I could have had those last five or six laps to do over again. I started overdriving it a little bit trying to catch him and making a few mistakes, and I made one in particular that really cost me."
- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Gordon, who finished runner-up to Carl Edwards in Sunday’s road-course event at Sonoma Raceway.
"Well, aside from holding a trophy, this is like a win for us."
- NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. after recording his first career top-10 finish at Sonoma Raceway with a third-place effort on Sunday.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s third-place finish in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway was a major achievement for the veteran Hendrick Motorsports driver. The finish was a career best for Earnhardt Jr. at Sonoma and marked the first time in 15 visits that he finished among the top 10. The effort also matched his career-best, road-course finish of third at Watkins Glen in 2003. ... Carl Edwards’ win at Sonoma Raceway was Ford Racing’s fifth of the season, which is just one shy of the manufacturer’s total for 2013 with 20 races remaining. ... Brendan Gaughan captured his first career NASCAR Nationwide Series win in Saturday’s rain-drenched road course event at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. Gaughan grabbed the lead after a green/white-checkered restart and held off IZOD IndyCar Series regular Alex Tagliani for the win, which came in his 98th career start. It marked just the third time in Nationwide Series history that grooved rain tires were used in a race, with the previous two occasions coming at the road course in Montreal. ... Penske Racing’s Will Power heads into this weekend’s Grand Prix of Houston doubleheader with a 39-point lead over teammate Helio Castroneves in the IZOD IndyCar Series championship. Power is the only driver to finish in the top 10 of all eight races this season, including second in the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. ...Ryan Hunter-Reay finished first or second in four of the first five races, including a victory in the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500, but he has struggled of late with three consecutive finishes outside the top 10. The slump has dropped him to third in the IZOD IndyCar Series championship, 21 behind Castroneves and 60 behind Power. ...
