KYLE BUSCH, No. 51 Miccosukee Resorts/NOS Energy Drink Toyota Tundra, Billy Ballew Motorsports
Finished: 1st

How does it feel to get to victory lane for the third time in the Truck Series this year?

"It feels pretty good. This is definitely a great race team. It's a lot of fun with Billy Ballew (owner), Richie (Wauters, crew chief) and all these guys. We just had a great race tonight. This thing was pretty good when we unloaded it. Same stuff as last year. We just kind of fine-tuned on it a little bit. We got into it a little bit with Johnny (Benson) there. Sorry about that. I didn't even see him come down there. I got my nose in there, and he was trying to miss a lapped truck, I guess. Overall, we just wanted to stay up front up all night and keep our nose clean. To bring this Miccosukee Resorts and NOS Energy Drink Toyota to victory lane is awesome."

What does it mean to have won in all three NASCAR series at Bristol?

"It's fun to be able to win anywhere. It's also fun to win in anything at any track, but to win in all three series at one track is pretty special. I've been able to do it at Phoenix and here, and one shy at a couple other places, two shy at some places and three shy at most of them. I've still got a long way to go. I have to thank all the guys at Toyota and TRD."

Did you learn anything for the Cup Series and Nationwide Series races later this week?

"A little bit. Some of those guys started off pretty tight and just got tighter. I started off loose and got a little tight. I was just a little freer than those guys. I was a little bit more able to carry my speed better through the corners than they were, and that helped me. I just got some good restarts and was able to hold them off."
