KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 NOS Energy Drink Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing
Finishing Position: 3rd

Are you disappointed to have the race end early for rain?

"I was very disappointed that we didn't get a win and the guys aren't able to celebrate themselves in victory lane for putting together the fastest car out there, but the NOS Energy Drink Toyota was good - it was fast and circumstances just didn't hit our way tonight."

How were you able to come from the back to the front so quickly at the start of the race?

"It was a smooth journey at least. There wasn't a whole lot of stuff that happened. Typically we see a caution in the first 10 laps here so I was pretty surprised that we didn't have that, but it was uneventful. I just went to the top when they were on the bottom - went to the bottom when they were on the top and just kind of made my way through there and picked them off one at a time and sometimes two at a time. Tried to pick and choose and wasn't too worried about racing a few guys. We made it up there pretty smoothly and we had the fastest car and figured we would have won the race. Third place I guess is good and as everybody else would probably say, 'It's a good points day.' I'm not worried about points - I want wins."
