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

“We had a good day. This has been a tough racetrack for us. We ran in the top-five all day and battled up front for the lead off and on. The last three runs we got tight in the center and loose off the corner and couldn’t find anything to make that better. Our Busch Light Ford team did a great job, and we just keep knocking off those top-fives. The wins will come. It was a lot of fun. That is what we want to be able to do, we want to be able to pass.”
