OEY LOGANO, No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford Mustang — Finished 1st

WHAT DID YOU LEARN TODAY THAT YOU COULD TAKE INTO NOVEMBER BY WINNING THIS RACE, THE PERFORMANCE YOU HAD, BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS GOING TO BE WON? “You think I’m going to tell you that (laughter)? Definitely, everybody learned something out there today just whether it’s racing, the way this traction compound is, the awesome sauce up there, how that worked out, played throughout the race.  There’s a lot learned, for sure. We learned that this No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford team is just stout and is not going to get beat if we have the opportunity.  We tried everything we could to regain our track position and get control back of the race.  I knew that last restart was going to be crazy. I have to thank my partners, Moneyline, Auto Trader, AAA, Ford, Coca?Cola, Snap?on, everybody that helps this program at Team Penske.  Roush?Yates motors.  It was cool to see two Fords on the front row at the end of a race like that.  This is a motor racetrack as much as we don’t think it is. Proud of the team effort today to make this one come.”

KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Jimmy John’s Ford Mustang – Finished 2nd 

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE 22 MAYBE HAD JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE OF? “He just had control of the race.  After we pitted there, I got stuck behind a couple of cars there, lost five or six spots.  He got by and got control of the race.  He got to restart where he wanted to. Our Jimmy John’s Ford was better, especially when we could put it in front of his.  We just didn’t get the control of the race back there, and he was able to get by us on that restart where I got hung up.”
