MATT KENSETH - No. 17 DEWALT Power Tools Taurus

HAS IT SUNK IN YET?

"A little bit, but it's just really awesome to be part of this group of guys that are standing up here. I'm just really honored to be driving for this team and really honored to be up there with all of those really great Winston Cup champions. I'm just so appreciative for all the opportunities that I've had."

HOW WAS IT TO HAVE RICHARD PETTY A PART OF THIS CELEBRATION?

"That's beyond cool. Richard Petty is the first Winston Cup champion and it's amazing to think we're the last Winston Cup champion. It's just a huge honor to even get to talk to the King and somebody that you idolized growing up as a stock car racer. I'm just so happy to be here."

WHAT DID YOU CONCENTRATE ON THIS YEAR?

"Just to try to do a better job with the things we lacked last year. Last year, we struggled at certain tracks. This year, we were better at them. Last year, we had too many DNFs. We tried to minimize them this year, if we could. We just tried to make the bad days better."
