Is your team focused more on 'points racing' or winning races? "We prepare every week to go win the race. If we can't win, we get the best points race that we can. That's the way you have to look at it. I've had a lot of people asking me, 'Are you going to go on the defensive -- are you going into points racing mode?' My answer is, 'No, we're in points racing mode every week.' We still go to win the race, but if we can't win then we just worry about getting the best points day we can and that's what's got us to this point, and that's what we're going to keep doing. If I was in points racing mode, I wouldn't have tried to pass Kyle (Busch) at Kentucky for the lead. I would have ridden behind him and finished second."
