CARL EDWARDS -- No. 60 Save a Lot Ford Fusion -- (finished 2nd, qualified 1st)
TALK ABOUT YOUR RUN.
"It was all right. Second place is not a lot of fun, but I do enjoy racing here. My hat's off to Denny and everybody over there at Gibbs, they've been doing a great job. It was a good points day for us, which is the only conciliation for not winning the thing, but it's good. I'm proud of my guys for getting this car fast. In practice we were not good at all. We qualified on the pole and ran second, that's a step forward and hopefully we can continue this and run better and gain some more points for this championship."
DID YOU HAVE ANYTHING FOR DENNY? IF THEY WERE TOO STRONG, WAS THAT JUST THE ENGINE?
"Both Denny and Kyle were real good. They're good drivers and their teams are working well together. It's not just one thing; I don't think it's just the engines. With as much as we have to gain in the way we do our team and our engineering and things like that, I'm just excited to be able to stay that close to them. I think we have a lot to look forward to, some of the things we're starting to work on. I'm excited about hopefully catching them and being able to have them chase us by the end of the year. I don't think it's one thing, I think, they've got the whole package right now."
TALK ABOUT THE BATTLE FOR THE POINTS, ESPECIALLY GOING INTO THE NEXT THREE WEEKS WHEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE FLYING BACK AND FORTH EVERYWHERE.
"Last year, it was not an issue because we were so great. For the first half of the year, we were just kind of rolling along having fun enjoying it. Now, it's getting pretty tight, so it's going to be exciting. It's good for the fans. It's good for the whole Nationwide series for us to have a good battle like that. It will be fun. I like this next month, it's a blast going back and forth and running to your car for qualifying and that stuff. We had fun with that last year. It seemed like I had to run every time, but we'll have fun."
