Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Busch Beer Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing:

“This was a great weekend for our Busch/Jimmy John’s Ford. The guys did a great job. They made it a little better than it was in practice, they executed on pit road all day, and we just did all of the little things right. We didn’t have the speed that the Toyotas had through the center of the corner. As the long run would go we would just get a little bit worse and that gap would get a little bit wider, but we hung in there and fought all day. Everybody did a great job, and we got a good finish.”
