Kyle Busch, No. 5 Cheez-It/CARQUEST Monte Carlo SS, met with members of the media and discussed future plans for Joe Gibbs Racing, racing in the heat, his Busch car sponsor, his relationship with his brother, how he handles conflicts on track, his goal for the rest of this season, heading to Richmond and the affect of starting a race at 5 p.m.

ON RACING IN THE HEAT: "It was warm at Bristol. At Bristol you walk outside and you're sweating. Here at least you have to be doing something to sweat. For me I like the West Coast a lot better. The weather, yeah it's hotter and guys complain about the heat and stuff but to me it's home. I'm used to it. I think I might have a little bit of an advantage over the rest of the guys because they're complaining about it but I like it better here. I could do a 118 degree heat. I did it in Vegas."

ON GOING TO RICHMOND: "I think if we start this weekend and have just a solid effort. If Dale Jr. wins and we finish 20 something or better then we pretty much are locked in for Richmond. So I'm looking forward to this week. Hopefully we've got a good enough car where we can just go out there for a win and compete for a win because I feel like that'll be the best situation for us, just try to win this week and try to win next week due to the fact that we're trying to raise our standings when the Chase starts for the 10 point bonus for wins. It's going to be hard to do but I've won here before. I feel like we can hopefully do it again and Richmond my worst finish there is fifth place so I'm looking forward to being able to go there again and run with those guys. We finished second there in the spring so I feel like we've got a good car or at least a good shot of returning to do the same performance."
