RICK HENDRICK , Owner of Hendrick Motorsports with three cars in the Chase - No. 48 Jimmie Johnson Lowe's Monte Carlo SS - finished 23rd in the race and second in point standings; No. 5 Kyle Busch Kellogg's Monte Carlo SS - finished second in tonights race and fourth in point standings; No. 24 Jeff Gordon Dupont Monte Carlo SS finished 31st in tonight's race and ninth in point standings:

ON BEING CAR OWNER WITH MOST CARS IN THE CHASE:

"It feels great. I will tell you; it was a nail biter tonight. This is just a whole lot of pressure. We wanted to see the No. 24 (Jeff Gordon) and No. 48 (Jimmie Johnson) run better but Kyle (Busch) was good, we are in the Chase and that is all that counts right now. We will get ready to go to Loudon and start the fight."

ON IF THIS IS THE TOUGHEST CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE HE HAS EXPERIENCED:

"Well, you think you have a great shot at it, but anything can happen. That is why it is so exciting for the fans but it is pretty much a nail biter for us. Getting them in the Chase is what we wanted to do, and we accomplished that tonight. They have worked together all year and it is a tribute to the company and the organization the way they shared information and worked together. I am just glad tonight is over and we can look toward next weekend. I don't think that next weekend will be nearly as tough as tonight was. I am looking forward to it."
