"Road Atlanta was a different story," Herrin said of his first win a month ago in Georgia. "I was really confident going into the race. Today, when JD (Beach) threw down that lap in qualifying and I couldn't match it... to be honest, I was kind of worried going into the race. When I saw we were doing low 27s (1:27 lap times) and I'm sure a couple of laps he did high 26s, there was nobody showing me a wheel and we were all just comfortable there and waiting. Like I said before, there's no points for most laps led anymore so there's no point wasting my tire trying to battle with him and letting the guys behind us catch up. We're both real aggressive riders and we'd pass each other back. I was trying to play it smart and get some points. If we could get him at the end, we'd celebrate, but if we didn't we'd get some points."
