"It was OK. I think Kevin had the best car and the 16 had a pretty good car. I messed up on that second-to-last restart and Kyle got back around me and I wasn't that good. Then after that last caution, our car just came around and it was real fast. I with I would have been in front."

TALK ABOUT RACING KYLE BUSCH. "The restart, I'm not sure. I just must have had some junk on my tire or something and I got on the outside of a lapped car, and I tried to get back in the gas too early and the front end wouldn't turn and I got up in the marbles. That was just a dumb mistake by me. We didn't really have many run-ins, but I kept trying to pass him and he just kept chopping me off. I got outside of him twice and he used the lapped cars as a pick and ran me into the marbles. He came over to my spotter two or three times and said, 'Hey, don't hang me out on a restart if we get even and you've got a faster car, I'll let you go.' So, I didn't hang him out on the restart and once we got running I got under him two or three feet three or four times before I finally stayed in it, so I don't think he has much to be mad about. That was my space."

"Nobody ran into the back of me all day and I didn't run into the back of anybody all day, so from my part it was pretty good. I just had a little thing with Kyle, but I think if you hit somebody in the left-rear tire underneath them, that's kind of your spot. From where I was it was pretty clean, but I was toward the front most of the time."
