You go back to the start of time. One cave guy was fighting another cave guy because his club was bigger than his or his woman had longer hair. Thats competition.
I don't like the package, but we haven't found an alternative. They've changed and changed and changed over the years, and we're about out of changes as far as trying to find a happy medium of being able to get where we're not running over the top of each other but yet put on a good show.

You've got to be closer to the edge than ever to win. That means sometimes you go over the edge, and I don't mean driving, either.
With 20 top-10 finishes, I feel we're on the right path.
Two of my favorite things are my steering wheel and my Remington rifle.
To come in and win three races already this year and maybe set a record by winning four is pretty unique. But guys like Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace and these guys are not wanting that to happen.
The thing about it is, all those races we lost, we won this race together. We won it as a team.
The atmosphere seems to change once the sun goes down and the race fans get to watch a good show.
That's what we're striving for, making us a contender in every race.
That strategy of racing for the top five and racing for the win is where everybody wants to be.
Richard Childress and myself have made some important innovations on our cars.
People are going to get older and young guys are going to come in and race and get more competitive.
Maybe now that we have the same sponsor in Remington we can spend some time together outdoors.
It's just really hard to work and get better, building and planning for the future with the new Monte Carlo and keeping the race team intact and keeping them healthy.
It's a never ending battle of making your cars better and also trying to be better yourself.
If we're going to run for points we need to run in the top-five every week.
If I was 30th in points and not making races and not being competitive in races, I could understand them saying I'm over-the-hill or I'm ready to quit or whatever.
I've never won the Daytona 500 before.
I've had confidence in myself all along. It was just a matter of getting the pieces back in place.
I've got to win every race.
I'm racing for the wins and racing up front and finishing in the top 10. It's puzzling to me how you can judge a driver on that.
I woke up this morning, and I still don't believe I won the Daytona 500.
I want to be up front racing.
