Busch Quotes for week leading up to Talladega Superspeedway

This has been an incredible stretch of racing for you lately. Can you explain any of it?

"I don't know really. It is kind of tough to put it into words. The whole season has been amazing so far really. To win three in a row in the Nationwide Series has been a lot of fun. We had a couple of tough breaks in races we probably should've won and that started to weigh on us. But we've gotten back on track there. Plus we've got wins in the Truck Series, and of course the Cup Series win. It's been a blast to start the season off like this. I'm not sure we've really done anything different week-to-week. I know all the team guys have been working hard all the time, and I just try to drive hard no matter what. So we feel very fortunate that it's been working out for us so far."

Are you excited to come to Talladega?

"Based on the luck I've had here in the past, I probably shouldn't be. This place has been one of our worst tracks as far as finishing goes. But yeah, I'm excited to get going. You know, we ran well at Daytona, and I feel like we should be good here too. We're bringing a decent car with us. I know Steve [Addington] knows what he's doing at a superspeedway, so I feel comfortable there. It'll just be a matter of keeping our nose clean and staying out of trouble. That'll probably never change at Talladega."
