Dover II: Kyle Busch post-qualifying interview

Press Conference

HOW DOES THE CAR FEEL?

It feels pretty good. We had a good decent run there with the Kellogg's Chevrolet. Once we unloaded here I felt that had a pretty good shot at qualifying in the top 10. Especially there after the qualifying, I knew we were going to somewhere in the top 5. So, that was definitely good for us and I'm looking forward to the race.

IS LAST WEEK'S INCIDENT WITH KASEY OVER AND DONE WITH?

Yeah, what is today's date? 9/24? I think that was 9/18 or something. That was days ago, it's over. I talked with Tommy Baldwin earlier today and discussed things with him. I tried to catch up with Ray but I was getting in the car as he was walking by and I hadn't had a chance to see Kasey at all running back and forth with the Busch cars. I ran into him right there and that was about it. I don't even have his phone number so I wasn't able to get in touch with him during the week.

IS THIS HOW YOU'VE WANTED YOUR IMPROVEMENT IN YOUR TEAM TO GO DURING THIS CHASE PERIOD? YOU'VE HAD GREAT CARS LATELY

No, we didn't have a very good car last week. We were second in practice. Qualifying it was really, really loose. In the race I thought it was going to be pretty good, but in the race it wasn't good either. Really tight. It wasn't the same car we had there in the spring race at Loudon. That might have been some of the problem. But overall we've got a good car. We came up here and tested a couple of weeks ago. (We) had a decent enough test where we thought we could come here in a good car and we did. But, we unloaded well for qualifying trim and now it's about race trim and getting some good laps down and build a comfort level for the car on the race track.
