Following the race, Gustafson proudly posed in Victory Lane. Standing next to the winning trophy, he jokingly replied that he was "just a little nervous" in response to a question of his emotions in the final, gut-wrenching laps. With a smile brimming from ear-to-ear, his focus always remained on his team. Minutes later during a post-race press conference, he wanted the media to know how hard his crew worked after a disappointing finish in Atlanta the previous weekend. Gustafson confidently expressed that "the pit crew guys came back with a chip on their shoulder, and I am really proud of them."
A panel of voters, which included a member of the local media, Tony Eury Jr., Robbie Reiser, Kenny Francis and a WYPALL* Wipers representative, agreed that Alan Gustafson made the best calls and adjustments during the race. As the WYPALL* Wipers Crew Chief of the Race, Gustafson received $1,000. With the victory, he has moved into a tie for first place with Chip Bolin, Chad Knaus, Ryan Pemberton and Donnie Wingo, each with one win. At the end of the season, the crew chief with the most weekly wins will receive $20,000 and be crowned WYPALL* Wipers Crew Chief of the Year.
