"On the restarts I could do what I wanted to do and hold them off for 15 or 20 laps," Harvick said. "This race has come down to that every year. You kind of play toward that and they were quite a bit better than us on the long run. We had a really good car for those first 15 to 20 laps on the restarts and had a lot of speed, we just never got to try to race for it there."
"Tony definitely has his strengths, especially when it comes to the sponsorship side of things," Harvick said. "He's very good at courting people, keeping people, when you need him to re-up or resign their contract."
