"Man, I'm having a blast. I want to thank the fans; I just love you guys and thanks for all your support. Last year, I'm back one more year for you guys and Jack Roush and for all of these guys. It's a privilege to drive this F-150. It's just got great horsepower, and it was a great handling truck, and those guys out there are just fantastic. I love racing with Todd Bodine and Ted and Mike Skinner and all of these guys; they're really good drivers. We had our hands full on that last restart. Todd was really good on the restart and he was giving us a pretty good run. We had great horsepower here and we just stepped on it and got across the line first."

TALK ABOUT THE FINAL RESTART.

"Well, Todd learned that if we had a green-white-checkered that he was going to be sitting pretty good. I knew that he knew, and he knew that I knew, and it was time to see what we could all do. We just had enough to keep it out there. Our truck would get better the longer we would run and I really do like this F-150. It's an awesome truck and I'm just lucky to be driving it."

WINNING THE FIRST TWO RACES OF THE SEASON, HOW HARD IS IT GOING TO BE TO HAND OVER THE REINS LATER IN THE YEAR?

"Well, I' really excited. David Ragan is going to take over for me starting in Martinsville for a while, and David is a young rookie that's incredible. I think he can get some wins in this thing, too. I really look forward to watching David come along. He's a great a driver. I'll watch."

JACK ROUSH , Owner-6-Scotts Ford F-150

"Mark Martin is the man. He's been my partner in this whole thing, building this Roush Racing team the past 19 years. When you have this good start for our program this year, and based on what that means for him and for Matt both in the truck racing that will follow, this is great. I love for Scotts to be here, and I'm glad for Ford Motor Co. and the F-150; we're having a great start."
