Kevin Harvick, No. 29 Shell/Pennzoil Impala SS, met with members of the media and discussed racing at Kansas, transition back to the old car, how he feels about the performance of the two cars, having teammates in the Chase, the trend in open-wheel drivers coming to NASCAR and the team dynamics as the Chase progresses.

Select quotes from driver interview:

YOU HAVE THREE IMPALA SS RACES AND THEN YOU GO BACK TO THE MONTE CARLO SS - IS THERE ANY TRANSITION? "Not really. You've got such a package that everybody kind of understands with the old car that you get acclimated pretty fast once you go back to the other car."

DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO GOING BACK TO THE OTHER CAR? "They both present different challenges. You just race whatever you have underneath you and whether it's the COT car or it's the old car, you become acclimated to what you have going on that particular weekend."

ON HAVING TEAMMATES IN THE CHASE: "It doesn't really change anything that we do. We all share everything anyway so it really doesn't change anything that we do."

DO TEAM DYNAMICS CHANGE THE FARTHER ALONG YOU GET INTO THE CHASE? "I don't think it can for us. We have good communication between our teams and we all share the information and get along well so that's what we'll continue to do until the last race."
