KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 Z-Line Designs Toyota Camry, Joe Gibbs Racing Finishing Position: 1st How did you win this race? “I don’t know — look at the thing. I got hit like three times on the left side. I thought it was killed — I said it was killed. These guys did a great job putting it back together with great leadership from Jason Ratcliff (crew chief). This Z-Line Designs Camry doesn’t look the best, but it was certainly the best right there at the end, especially with the guy that was pushing me — Joey (Logano) was a great teammate today. Can’t thank everybody from the whole JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) organization — the guys from GameStop, thank those guys. They deserve to win just as much as we do right here. This is a team win and it’s cool to get it here. Finally I won a Nationwide race here so now I completed the sweep at Talladega. NOS Energy Drink, Toyota — this Camry was pretty fast today in the draft and getting pushed with another Camry so it worked good there. Gillette, Nationwide Insurance, Marquis Jets
