Our performance has been up and our finishes have been a little bit better, so I think everybody has been a little bit more excited the last couple of months, ... I think your goals are to try and win every week, and I think when you're running better in general it's probably a little bit less of a grind and everybody is more excited to get to the track when you're running good.
It was a great day for the guys, ... We kept making adjustments to the car and got good enough. Until two to go, I thought I was racing Carl for the win. It's great to be up front all day. The disappointing thing is I think we had the car to win. We're here to win and whenever you don't win, it's disappointing.
Tony took me out intentionally, there's no two ways about that. He wrecked me intentionally and got put back to the end of the line, which I didn't think was too big a penalty. It's really disappointing. (NASCAR president) Mike Helton, I thought, did a great job explaining in the drivers' meeting aggressive driving, not necessarily bump drafting. (Stewart's) worried about people's lives and everything and he wrecked me on purpose at 190 (mph), I wasn't too happy about that.
The most fun track we race on may be at Atlanta. You can run the white line or you can have the right rear scraping the fence and probably run the same lap times, so you never have an excuse for not passing a car in front of you. There are a lot of good grooves at Atlanta. It's a good race for the drivers and good fun for the fans.
