Following the race, Keselowski said, "Yeah, it was a long day, but you know, the Miller Lite Dodge team worked hard today and we had awesome pit stops, awesome pit strategy to help us get up towards the front. It was a dogfight just to hold on and that was kind of the story of our day. I fought really hard on that last restart. I knew I had the lead going into three and she just didn’t stick. That just shows the effort that we’re all putting into it, whether it’s me behind the wheel or the whole team building these cars and going over the wall. If we keep putting that effort in, we’ll find ourselves in victory lane. We’re still proud of our fifth-place finish here today. It’s definitely my best here at Phoenix.”
Allmendinger said on Twitter following the race, "Not what we wanted. I def need to keep working on getting better. Shell/Pennzoil Dodge deserves to run better. My guys did a good job on Working hard to repair the car and staying the game. Good job to my teammate BK for give the team a good run. Will work hard to get ready 4 Las Vegas."
