BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T) Finished 1st

YOU HAD NEVER WON HERE BEFORE; WHAT TURNED IT AROUND? "An awesome race car. An awesome race team. Penske Racing. The night race at Bristol! This is the race that Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt win. It’s the race of champions. I can't believe it. There are races that pay more. There are races that might have a little more prestige, but this is the coolest damn one of them all. We won it!"

TALK ABOUT YOUR MONTH OF AUGUST; HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN? "A team that just starts to click and believes in each other. I believed in Paul (Wolfe) since we started this year and we've just made good adjustments to our cars over the last few months. We made good adjustments to our car today and we find ourselves in victory lane. I can't believe it, I really can't.

"The first few pit stops of the day, we struggled a little bit, but that last stop my guys came through and got me out in front of the 24. We were able to pass Martin Truex and the next thing I know, we're in victory lane spraying Miller Lite. This is really cool."

PAUL WOLFE (Crew Chief, No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger R/T)

"I'm so proud of everyone on this team. To have three wins now in this season from where we started the year just shows all the hard work that everybody has been doing back at the shop. All these guys on the pit crew, we had the pit stop that counted tonight. They did their deal. Everybody is doing their part. We're building fast Miller Lite Dodge Chargers and I'm just really proud of everyone on this team."

KURT BUSCH (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T) Finished 17th

“It was just a difficult night for us all the way around. We were playing catch-up all race due to the two pit-road penalties (speeding). We finally made it up to 10th in the Shell/Pennzoil Dodge with less than 100 to go, but had our worst pit stop of the night under the last caution and lost six spots back to 16th. We went with an adjustment (wedge) that made it just too tight to advance. It wasn’t the night we expect to have at Bristol.”
