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

“It was a solid night. Our Busch Light Ford was fast, and we were able to come through the field and do what we needed to do. We had the restarts there, and the 21 and 2 hung on my right rear and just lost the 78, and we never really had a chance to catch him there at the end. We worked on it quite a bit and had good pit stops. We had to adjust the balance on it throughout the night. Our Busch Light Ford was solid all night. I got us a lap down there when I had a tire coming apart. It was vibrating really bad. We came back through the field. It just didn’t line up for us there at the end.”
