PLAYERS: Kevin Harvick

THE MODERATOR:  Now joining Matt is Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Jimmy John’s Chevrolet who finished second and he currently sits seventh in points now.  So talk a little about your race today out there here at Dover.

KEVIN HARVICK:  Yeah, we had a solid race.  I made a mistake on pit road there and got us back to about 20th.  The car was good enough to be able to drive back through the pack, and for whatever reason, we were able to adjust our car well today when we needed to and we were able to keep up with the racetrack and keep our car better through the day.  And I think that was a big key to getting through the traffic and putting ourselves back in position to at least have a chance.

Q.  Goodyear brought some new tires here and you’ve been complaining about the track; what did you both by about the way the tires and track worked out with the rubber and the cautions?

KEVIN HARVICK:  For me I thought it worked out a lot better.  I didn’t feel any of those patches or sliding around or getting in the corner.  Seemed like you could move your car around so it seemed like they definitely made an improvement.

Q.  Can you walk me through the one pit stop error; is that a situation where it’s an odd angle coming into the kits in?

KEVIN HARVICK:  I was having trouble all day, the pit stay (ph) was on the corner and I was having trouble picking up my mark and I tried to get too much in between the timing lines there and just over shot the pit.  So just a bad mistake.  But I didn’t do a very good job.

THE MODERATOR:  Thank you very much for your time.
