KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Busch Beer/National Forest Foundation Ford Mustang – VICTORY LANE INTERVIEW – WHAT MORE CAN THIS WIN DO FOR YOU?  “We’ve run well enough a few times this year to win, but we’ve just made mistakes and to finally battle and get over that hump is a great day for everybody at Stewart-Haas Racing and everybody on the 4 car.  I was really questionable about how that was gonna go and the thing took right off.  The only thing that wasn’t good was we got the traffic and my car started pushing.  I knew that he was gonna take a shot.  I would have taken a shot.  I stood on the brakes and just tried to keep it straight.  I just didn’t want to get him back from the inside and let him have another shot.  I wanted to at least be in control of who was gonna have contact in turn three and four.  It was a heck of a finish, closer than what we wanted, but it was our only chance.  I would have never done it, but that’s why he’s on the box and not me.”

RODNEY CHILDERS, Crew Chief, No. 4 Busch Beer/National Forest Foundation Ford Mustang – WHAT MADE YOU KEEP HIM ON THE TRACK AND NOT PIT?  “I felt like we had a great car all weekend and everybody had been doing a good job.  We were just in a bad spot there with track position and I didn’t think we were gonna win from where we were at, so sometimes you have to make those decisions and Kevin did a great job on the restart and holding his own.  That track position was key today and clean air and just really proud of everybody at Stewart-Haas Racing and everybody at Ford and everybody that has pushed hard for us all year to try to get our cars better and get back to Victory Lane.”
