KYLE BUSCH, NO. 5 KELLOG'S CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO

Q. HOW IS THE TEST GOING?

"It's going all right; we've had a bunch of weird times coming up because it's so windy outside. It's worse than yesterday. It's not really giving us a good reading but we have all the telemetry and such where we can calculate what exactly the lap was from the wind speed and all that."

Q. ON BEING THE FASTEST IN TUESDAY'S SESSIONS.

"The winds really picked during the afternoon session of practice -- it was normal Daytona weather. Even with the gusty winds, we continued to make changes, trying to make the car faster and faster and getting the feel from it I need. Toward the end of the day, the winds slowed down some and we put the car almost in full qualifying trim to make a run and it happened to be the fastest of the day."

Q. WHAT ARE THE PLANS FOR THE DRAFTING SESSIONS ON WEDNESDAY?

"We're pretty happy with our "A" car in qualifying trim, so we'll probably just make a few runs with it in the pack on Wednesday and see how it reacts in the draft, make a couple of changes here and there and then put it away. Our backup car will be the car we do most of our drafting with on Thursday, just in case something were to happen we wouldn't damage our primary car."
