– HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE SUCH A DOMINANT CAR? “It feels like don’t screw
it up. Our car was awesome. The team did a great job and I’m just really thankful to have a car this good. I don’t know how else to put it. The Miller Lite Ford Fusion was hauling and I just can’t wait to get deeper in the season and the post-season. I think this is where we need to be to have a shot at another championship, so I’m just real proud of everyone
right now.”

WHAT WAS YOUR THOUGHT WHEN YOU HAD TO CHASE DOWN KYLE BUSCH? “It
was gonna be tough. I knew it was gonna be really, really tough. I figured we’d get to him, but I didn’t really think I’d be able to pass him. I caught a little break in lap traffic and the car was just that good. I was able to take advantage of it and get the lead. That was

awesome.”

WELCOME
TO THE CHASE. “That feels good. Thank you, very much.”
