MATT KENSETH - No. 17 DEWALT Power Tools Taurus (Finished 3rd)

WHAT ABOUT THE CHEVROLETS TODAY? "I think you'll know more after Vegas and Atlanta. I don't think you can tell anything at Rockingham. Rockingham is more of a setup track and driver-feel type track - springs, shocks, swaybar type track. I remember when we were having all the aero stuff like three years ago or something like that when Labonte brought his car to the wind tunnel he was like 300 pounds of downforce worse than all the rest of the top five and he won the race, so I don't think the body and the downforce means as much here as what it's gonna mean the next few weeks."

HOW WAS YOUR DAY? "We had a good day. We had a really good car. It was a brand new car and, just like everybody else, we didn't get a lot of practice. Overall, we had a great day. We never got the track position that we quite needed and felt like we had a car with an 80-lap run that could have won the race. We could make up a lot of ground. Towards the end of the runs, our car was really strong -- not necessarily the first 20 or 30 laps, but the last 20 or 30. I'm real happy finishing third. I think we had a car that definitely could have contended for the win, we were just a little too far behind on the last restart and was a little too loose that last run to be able to get up there, but it was a great day for us."
