KEVIN HARVICK, NO. 29 GM GOODWRENCH CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO:

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BILL ELLIOTT AND THE LAST LAP?

"It's one of those deals where you shake your head for a guy who dominated a race like that. I've been there. It's probably the worst feeling in the world. It's never over until it's over, that's for sure. That's why most of the people stay in the grandstands and that's why our sport is so exciting to watch because it isn't over until the checkered flag falls."

DID ANYTHING HAPPEN TO YOUR CAR AS A RESULT OF THE LAP 5 SITUATION THAT MAY HAVE AFFECTED YOUR CAR LATER ON?

"I don't think so. I think we got really lucky where the impact was on the side and it just caved the side in and not damage the hood or the front fenders. We were pretty fortunate in that whole mess."

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU'LL BE WORKING ON DURING THE OFF-SEASON?

"Well, Phoenix and Atlanta we were obviously in the wrong place at the wrong time. We were running in the top 10. But we've just got to get going at the beginning of the year. That's our main focus. We've got to come out of the box strong. We've got to do what we did in the second half of this year in the first half of next year because that's the reason Matt Kenseth was the champion this year. He came out of the box strong. He was consistent all year long and did what he had to do to run in the top 10 and the top five."
