CARL EDWARDS -- No. 60 Scotts Winterguard Ford Fusion (Finished 2nd)
HOW WAS YOUR RUN?
"I'm so proud of my guys. In practice, that thing was miserable to drive. I mean, it was no good. They did some wholesale changes and I buckled in and went back out and they closed the gate, so we couldn't go out and run it. We were a little nervous because we didn't get to run on it with these springs and shocks and stuff, so I'm really happy we ran as well as we did. That's what we needed to do for the owner's championship. I wanted to win really bad. This place is so much fun. It's great to win a race here, but Kyle definitely had a great car and I just couldn't get him. Maybe if the dude who ran third would have laid off me a little bit I could have got a run on him, but I just couldn't do it."
THIS MUST FEEL GOOD AFTER THE LAST FEW WEEKS.
"Oh yeah, it's huge. PK (Pierre Kuettel), we kind of had a little meeting this afternoon and it was like, 'Man, we've got to get things together.' We've been running pretty mediocre and having bad luck, and those two things combined make for a lot of really bad finishes, so it's awesome, it's great to finish second and have a good run with a car that was competitive. It's just fun to race when you have a car like that."
HOW FRUSTRATING IS IT TO WATCH A GUY PULL OFF IN THE DISTANCE AND WHERE WAS KYLE BEATING YOU?
"Yeah, it's frustrating anytime you're driving your car out and the guy pulls away, but it's sometimes like that. I think he was beating me a little bit in the middle and right back to the gas it seemed like he was pretty good."
