KURT BUSCH (No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger R/T) Race Winner YOU’RE TWO FOR TWO THIS WEEK IN DAYTONA. TALK ABOUT THIS VICTORY AND WHAT IT TOOK TO GET THE WIN? “This is sweet. It was just an overall team effort to get this victory. To have Shell/Pennzoil on board and start this strong with the double-deuce Dodge, I’m beside myself. The teamwork that it takes at the shop and the teamwork that it takes on the race track, this new draft is something different. I think it’s pretty special how Daytona can be repaved after 30 years and you see something completely different, yet it’s still the same old Daytona. You have to have a partner. The slingshot is there. Regan Smith, awesome competitor. He’s been strong on these restrictor plate tracks and he was a great teammate today.”

WHEN THE LAST CAUTION CAME OUT, WAS THERE ANY THOGUHT OF TEAMMING UP WITH ANYBODY ELSE? “There’s so many thought going through your mind. What are the two front row guys going to do? Who’s been teamed up all day? Who’s been there trying to get to their buddy? There are so many different scenarios, it’s almost like a roulette table spinning and you wait to see if the marble land on your number. And today was our day.”

HOW ABOUT THE WATER TEMPERATURE SITUATION AND THE TWO CAR SWAP? “It’s tough. It’s going to continue to get warmer as the week progresses. NASCAR tried to mandate how long we could stay behind another car. My car was hot many times and I was trying to protect it. It’s going to be a whole different game when we have to come out here and do this for 500 miles because the mental fatigue is tough. You have to know where your teammate is going to be and what you have to do to win this bad boy. Hey, two for two so far, we want that big one next weekend.”
