Quotes:

“It’s interesting to see how you start the season, then migrate one way or another on setups and then find yourself migrating back to that form that you started off with. That’s where we’re at with the No. 21, and I think it showed in Bristol that it doesn’t hurt to go back to what works.

“I felt like we had a great shot at winning Vegas earlier this season. We spent most of the race maybe a little too loose and got it back toward the end of the race. We didn’t have quite enough to get by Kyle (Busch) there at the end, but I felt like if we had a couple more laps his stuff was, in my opinion, going away a little bit and we were getting better.”
