ON THE RACE

"We did our very best in that Miracle-Gro Fusion and we just were not as fast the whole weekend as we have been here in the past. Scott's a good guy. It's good to see him get a win. But, yeah, we really wanted to make it four in a row. I don't know what happened to the 20 car [Kyle Busch] there. He was the class of the field. Once he had damage to his car, I thought we had a chance. Then they were telling me you guys short on fuel and we weren't. We get really good fuel mileage. I just kept waiting for you guys [Bowyer] to slow down, but you didn't, so we got third."

ON WINNING THE OWNER POINTS THIS YEAR.

"Owners points is huge for us. We just want to win the owners points because we didn't do it last year. I'm real excited that Clint and all these guys are running for points. It makes it fun. I like the competition."

WHAT'S GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND WHILE KYLE AND CLINT WERE RUNNING UP FRONT?

"It was really, really frustrating time for me for the first part of it, but we got better. I just know we have to work on some stuff. Anytime somebody checks out like that, you know it ain't the driver. They've got their cars good or something. We just have to work on our stuff. It's also cool to see fans in the stands for this race. This is a great race track and it ought to be full every time."
