MATT KENSETH -17-Waste Management Ford Taurus (Finished 3rd)

YOU AND CLINT BOWYER HAD A GOOD BATTLE AT THE END OF THE RACE.

"We were having a good race and I had him passed one time, and he got real loose off of four. I went into one and I wasn't sure if I was going to get him cleared or not, and he lifted and got behind me. It kind of surprised me and I got back in the gas and lost it again, and he drove back by me. I had that shot at Carl there, I thought, for a minute and we were all just racing so hard that I kind of slid the rear tires a little bit and he got back by me. It was a really fun race. This is a great race track. It's a lot of fun to drive around here and it puts on great races."

HOW AWARE ARE YOU WHEN YOU'RE RACING SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH CLINT THAT HE'S IN A TITLE CHASE?

"You're aware of what's going on, obviously. You don't really race anybody any differently if he was 30th in points or 2nd in points; I'm not going to try to get underneath him and wreck him. You're going to race as hard as you can around and try to get that position, but you're certainly not going to put them or yourself in any jeopardy. You don't really race different, but you're definitely aware of that and pay attention to that."
