Kyle Busch, No. 5 Kellogg's/CARQUEST Monte Carlo SS, met with media members at Michigan International Speedway and discussed his move to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008, leaving Hendrick, approaching the Chase, following University of Michigan football, driving at Bristol next week and a possible Busch campaign in 2008.

Select quotes from driver interview:

ON HIS APPROACH TO THE CHASE: "If we come out of this weekend with a strong run and, unfortunately for a couple of other guys, they have trouble then I think hopefully we can put ourselves in the Chase through just starting the last three races. I think we're pretty good right now - we're not as good as we want to be - but with four more races to go we've got a legitimate shot of climbing up to fifth in points. If we can do that, it would be pretty cool."

ON HAVING FUN AT BRISTOL (WHERE HE WON IN MARCH) BUT NOW HAS NEW (CONCRETE) TRACK SURFACE: "Well, it's different. It's completely different now. There's no aspect to that place that's the same. We tested there in a truck and in a Busch car . our Cup test got rained out. It's definitely going to be a different race, that's for sure. I definitely looking forward to it, not knowing what it will all entail. I've heard that Late Model races there have been really, really good. It should be fun.
