Lap 5
Edwards: Getting real tight.
Crew chief Jimmy Fennig: Both ways?
Edwards: Mostly on these right handers. It feels like there's no left front tire on it.

Lap 15

Fennig: That's what we were thinking.

Lap 28

Fennig:
5 more laps, Carl.
Edwards: Who's the fastest car?
Fennig: The 4 car, (Kevin Harvick) and the 48 (Jimmie Johnson).

Lap 33 (After the first caution at Lap 31 brought the No. 99 in early)
Fennig: A lot of 'em are on 3 stops. If the yellow hadn't come out, everything would have worked out.

Edwards:
How are my tires looking with that lock up?
Fennig: Tires look good, no cords.

Lap 60 (As the leaders come to pit road for green-flag pit stops)
Edwards:) Should we stop now?
Fennig: It ain't going to help us.

Lap 62 (During the second caution)
Fennig:
We're going to stay out and stay with our game plan so we have clean air when we get our good tires.

Lap 67 (As the No. 99 gets caught in traffic)
Edwards:
We're getting really screwed up here.

Lap 68
Edwards to spotter Jason Hedlesky: Jason, you're doing a good job. Let's just not get it wrecked here.

Pit this time.

You're the man now. Take him to school. Pick him apart.

Lap 86 (After the No. 9 team questioned Edwards' restart)

The green flag was waving before I went.

Lap 89
Hedlesky: Good job taking it away. Stay focused.

Lap 103
Hedlesky:
Opening it up again. Good work.

Lap 106
Hedlesky:
Make (Jeff Gordon) over drive his stuff. Front lock up right there.

Lap 107
Hedlesky:
Still no pressure out back. Run your race. Perfect Turn 7.

Lap 108
Hedlesky:
Heavy right front (tire) smoke. Get your rhythm.

Lap 109
Hedlesky:
Right front again. Closed to five (car lengths). You'll open it back up again.

Lap 110 (Final lap, next-to-last turn)
Hedlesky:
Protect your (Turn) 11 here.

Checkered flag

Whooo. Yeah! Awesome!
