WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THESE SECRET FINES? "I don't know much about it. I missed it." SOME SAY RYAN NEWMAN AND DENNY HAMLIN WERE FINED FOR COMMENTS THEY MADE. WILL THAT CHANGE HOW YOU COMMENT ON NASCAR? "Yes and no. I think you always have to try to think about the big picture and think about your sponsors and think about your team, think about the sport, think about the fans. You always try to take that stuff into consideration when you say stuff, but yet there's a line there where you need to be yourself and say what you want when you're mad, and I don't think they're trying to stop that. So I honestly don't know what those two would have said or what they got fined for, so I don't really know. If I knew what they said and what they got fined for that would help me a little bit. In other sports they do that. In the NFL, if you criticize officiating, I know that folks have been fined, so you've got to protect the sport, too."

HOW HAS THE CAR BEEN IN PRACTICE? "We struggled a little bit in our little bit of race trim stuff that we did. In qualifying trim we seemed to get it a little bit better as we ran, so, hopefully it'll be all right. I think we learned some stuff today."

ANY UPDATES ON JACK? "I guess he's doing a little bit better today. I haven't really talked to anybody there directly, but it seems like he's doing a little bit better so we'll see him back at the track soon."
