Kenseth had one of the fastest cars throughout the race, but it was Kevin Harvick who dominated all afternoon.  Harvick led a race-high 216 laps before running out of fuel with three laps to go.  Kenseth said he didn’t think he could beat Harvick’s fast car before it ran out of fuel.

“I was giving Kevin everything I had,” Kenseth said.  “I just thought he was going to beat us.  He had the best car today.  I guess he was just a little short on fuel.”

Kenseth is now locked into the second round of the Chase following his victory.  He said going into Dover already locked into the Contender Round won’t change the way his team approaches next week’s race.

“It doesn’t change, I thought a little about it today,” Kenseth said.  “These things are just too hard to win.  We’ll go [to Dover] and bring our good stuff and try to win.”

“It’s been awesome, I think we’ve got some more coming.”
