For Bowyer, he was just glad to have a shot at the win after being involved in a multicar accident on lap 180. "She (the car) was just tore up too bad," Bowyer said. "We were lucky to get back up where we had a shot at it."

Patrick was all smiles after the race even with losing the last-lap battle that cost her a spot.

"It was just nice to have a good weekend after having so many that weren't good since Daytona," said Patrick, who began the year with an eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500.

"Today was one of those days I had a good car. I think the team has a lot to be proud of. The stops were good. We just had a good car, and we kept improving. I really had a lot of fun today."
