KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Dollar General Toyota Tundra, Kyle Busch Motorsports
How does it feel to get the first win for Kyle Busch Motorsports? "It feels pretty awesome. It's a big deal. It's always nice to win anytime you're in anybody's stuff, but especially in your own. It just seems to set a lot better within yourself. This is a big deal that we've taken on this year with myself and Samantha (fiance) now being a part of that too. There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears this winter put into this deal. We've had our share of guys that have worked really, really hard and I'm very proud of everybody. Eric (Phillips, crew chief) has done a really nice job at putting the pieces all together, getting the race team built up. Rick Ren (director of competition) has done a fabulous job coming over here and building this start-up team from nothing and making it as competitive as it is right out of the gate. This was very, very cool to get our first win and solidify ourselves in the Camping World Truck Series for good."
