Kevin Harvick, No. 29 Shell-Pennzoil Monte Carlo SS, met with members of the media at Homestead-Miami Speedway and discussed: this being the last race for the Monte Carlo SS; proposed changes to NASCAR engine rules for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the NASCAR Busch Series; his qualifying for the Ford 400 and what it takes to maintain fitness and endurance for this long season:

ON HOMESTEAD BEING THE LAST RACE FOR THE MONTE CARLO SS: "I think it is going to make it better for everything, just only having one car. We will get over the fact that this car is better to drive handling wise. When you are racing the same car week in and week out, it is going to make the teams better, the drivers better, it should make everything better."

ON PROPOSED ENGINE RULE CHANGES FOR THE NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES AND THE NASCAR BUSCH SERIES TO LOWER HORSEPOWER: "I think it is going to mean a lot to both series. It is going to be cost effective for the engine bills first off, to help those pieces out. There are going to be a lot more race tracks where you are going to be wide open with the trucks. How that plays out, I don't really know. It seems like a lot of the race tracks we go to now that we are wide open, the handling comes in to effective. We will just have to wait and see how that handles the affects of the vehicles. As of right, it is hard to tell, but it is definitely going to save money."

ON BOTH RON HORNADAY, JR. AND JACK SPRAGUE BEING CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDERS FOR KHI IN 2008: "I would hope so. That is what we put that second team together for, obviously the No. 33 can race for the championship, we expect them both to run that way."

ON HOMESTEAD QUALIFYING: "The lap was good. We had a little bit of trouble in practice we couldn't decide where we wanted to be, after that we made our best guess at it and we guessed right."
