BEHIND THE HAULER CHAT WITH KYLE BUSCH, NO. 5 KELLOGG'S MONTE CARLO SS: ON RUNNING THREE RACES AT TMS: "As far as the racing part goes, it is good. But there three times as much media and sponsor responsibilities so that makes it pretty busy.

BEHIND THE HAULER CHAT WITH KYLE BUSCH, NO. 5 KELLOGG'S MONTE CARLO SS:

ON RUNNING THREE RACES AT TMS: "As far as the racing part goes, it is good. But there three times as much media and sponsor responsibilities so that makes it pretty busy. The racing part doesn't wear me out but going back and forth with the other stuff between the garages that is a little tough."

ON LEARNING SOMETHING IN TRUCK RACE TO USE IN BUSCH OR CUP RACE: "There isn't a whole lot you can gain in the truck race. I have always run pretty well here in a truck and the Busch car, but not very well in the Cup car. I don't know why that it. We are going to do what we have always done which is try to work on the car and run the best we can."

ON PLANS FOR 2007 BUSCH SERIES: "We are talking about that right now, whether or not to go full time or go 20 or 25 races. This year all the flying back and forth was ok."

ON JUST HAVING FUN NOW RACING, TAKING A LITTLE MENTAL BREAK, ENJOY SEASON SUCCESS AND PLANNING FOR NEXT SEASON: "That is what we would like to do. We would like to come in out of here with a good finish and have a strong finish to the season and get ready for next year's Daytona 500. We have run well this year and we have had a great year in the first 26 races or the regular season. Since the playoffs started, we have been pretty bad."

"I think there is a lot of hype and for us we started out bad and kind of dug ourselves a hole. Maybe it was just all mental and we felt like we had to come back right then and there the following two races instead of taking it through the 10 races to come back from. That might have been part of it. We just have to get a little bit better at that and look more forward toward next year. Trying to fix that."

ON TESTING ANYTHING ON 1.5 MILE SETUP HERE AT TMS TO USE NEXT YEAR: "We haven't really changed anything, the front shocks and stuff are about the same. Everybody is still doing the coil binding thing. Our rear stuff has been a little different from our teammates so we are going to somethings a little closer to what they are doing and see how that works for us."
