Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 41 Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing:

How tough was it restarting on the outside there at the end?

“Well, for some people it was okay. For us we were just a little too free to hold the throttle down. On the bottom I could hold it wide open. On the top I was just kind of chasing the car. I just have to thank everyone from Hunt Brothers and FIELDS, Textron Off-Road, Ford and everybody at Stewart-Haas for letting me be a part of this program and putting this program together. We’ve finished in the top-five every time out, so we’ve just got to keep building on it. I think the first year is definitely a building block and they’re doing really good.”
