Budweiser Racing Team Notes of Interest:

Harvick on the race at RIR and the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship: 

How was the car in tonight’s race?

“Our Budweiser Chevy, we fought all the problems we had in practice. We could run some good laps and some bad laps and the middle section of the run wasn’t very good, because I couldn’t run the bottom and I couldn’t run the top. I was just too loose up off the corner. It was an interesting night. I’m glad that one is over. That’s a long night when you’ve got to drive the cars like that. All in all it was a good night for our Budweiser team. They hung in there and we got a top five out of it.”

When you look at the tracks ahead, which ones are the best for you?

“They’re all good for us. I think we’ve run well at all the race tracks. It’s a matter of putting it all together on particular weekends and capitalizing on weekends when you’re the best car. Hopefully we can do that, but it will be an interesting 10 weeks.”

What are your chances for the championship?

“Our cars are really fast. I feel like we’ve overcome a lot of problems. We’ve gone 26 weeks and haven’t fixed pit road. We have to fix pit road in order to win a championship.”

The following is the finishing position of the other SHR teams in Saturday's race:
