This is my Mar- rinsville car from the Chase (for the N,A2CAR Sprint Cup) last year, so, it isn't the newest car we have but it sure does run. WVe fought through ad- versity all weekend long in 100degree temperatures, got this car out and got it ready to practice on the racetrack. That hard work is what got us into Victory Lane tonight. I wanted to win all three this weekend, butifI had to pick one, this is the one," Keselowski added.

The team was awe- some. (Crew Chief) Kenny Fmnd called a great race and prepared an awesome car. My pit crew was really, really good. We just had a couple of mistakes at two dif- ferent stops. We couldn't get enough track position, so we had to fight for a long time. I wish we could've caught Ke- selowski because we need the wins, but we came pretty close," Kahne said.
