KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Combos Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

Can you talk about your race tonight?

"We started in the back and drove through the field. We had a good race car. I knew that Carl (Edwards) was better than us all night. He just took his time and stayed out on tires one run. He fell behind a little bit with track position. He seemed to get that back. He went up there and passed us and won the race. Our car wasn't that strong, it was real loose if I tried to drive it any harder. I just didn't have it."

Are you disappointed with tonight's finish?

"Well, duh. I finished second. I'm not here to finish second. I traveled all this way to win the race and I didn't win the race. I guess the bright side of it is that I'll get home early and get to bed early."

Do you think you needed clean air to get the win?

"I was out front and he passed me. His car was better than my car was. Any time I tried to go harder I got loose."

Can you talk about your battle for second with Erik Darnell?

"It was a hard battle with Erik (Darnell). He had a good race car, too. It was another Roush (Fenway Racing) car. I just tried to race him clean and try to get by him there and eventually I finally did. We probably had a second, third or maybe fourth place car and made the most of what we had."
