KEVIN HARVICK , NO. 2 DUPLI-COLOR SILVERADO, FINISHED 3RD:

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR RACE?:

"We had a good day. The truck was really fast and we were able to do what we needed to do with pit strategy. Just came down to some circumstances. I felt like we probably had the best truck and wound up with neither truck winning the race. A little frustrated with that, but all in all, it was a good day."

WERE YOU AWARE THAT KYLE BUSCH WOULD HAVE RUN OUT OF FUEL IF IT STAYED GREEN THE WHOLE WAY? CAN YOU TALK ABOUT RACING RON HORNADAY AT THE END OF THE RACE?:

"I just feel like the communication between the spotter and the crew chief wasn't relayed to the driver very clear. I felt like one of the two trucks should have won the race. I felt like we were a little bit better truck and you can't put yourself in a position to do something underneath him that would be detrimental to his championship chase. Just some things internally that we probably need to work on there and we finished second and third today. It's still a good day -- a good day for them in the championship race, but still feel like we didn't do what we needed to do."

IS THE LACK OF COMMUNICATION WITH RON HORNADAY JUST FROM A LACK OF RACING TOGETHER MUCH AT THIS LEVEL?:

"No, I made it very clear on the radio what I expected and obviously it didn't come from the pit box or the top. It's not anything to do with Ron (Hornaday), it's just a little bit frustrating from an internal standpoint. I'll fix that."
