KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Z-Line Designs Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 2nd

How was it battling with Joey Logano for the win?

"He (Joey Logano) had a better car on the short run and we had a better long run car. I want to thank Z-Line, NOS Energy Drink, Toyota and all the guys on this team. They did a great job it was just a shame that we weren't able to get out there and win this thing. That's kind of frustrating, but we finished second today."

How was your race car today?

"It just never was a short run car all weekend. We got better the more we ran and we showed that in practice yesterday. The car was actually too tight there at the end when I was racing the 47 (Michael McDowell) for some reason. I don't know if he was lost on the race track or whatever, but he ran into the right side and killed the right-front fender -- frustrating day."

What did you think of the 'all-access' day for the fans today?

"There was a lot of people around here today that had a lot more access than is typical. Some fans in the garage area need to respect the drivers a little bit more because they're bringing suitcases of die-casts and autographed items that they want to get signed and I think that is disrespectful. Yeah it's our job to sign for the fans and treat them nice, but when they've got three suitcases of stuff that's a little ridiculous and they camp outside your hauler. To me, that's a little wrong. If they had one or two items I would be happy to sign for them -- that's fine. But three suitcases is a little outrageous."
