Kansas City, Kan.,— Roush Fenway Racing drove out of Kansas Speedway with three cars in the top-10 following Sunday’s STP 400.
Matt Kenseth came away with a fourth place finish after a solid day, but Kenseth said the car comfort was not where it needed to be at the beginning of the weekend.
“I was not happy with it at all this weekend and they made a lot of changes this morning and last night and it drove a lot better today,” Kenseth said. “We were a little bit off.”
“I got that one just horrendously awful restart in the middle of the race and we could just never quite get it exactly right, but it was a good day for us,” added Kenseth.
Fifth place finisher Greg Biffle said the day was a tough one, and the team was back and forth all day with adjustments. However, Biffle isn’t disappointed with a top-five finish.
“I thought we were gonna be a little better than that and we weren’t, but we’ll keep working on it and come back better the next time,” Biffle said. “It feels good to be disappointed with a fifth-place finish.”
“It feels good to be in that position,” added Biffle. “But we wanted to compete better on the race track and be a little closer.”
A ninth place finish was the closest Carl Edwards got to the front of the pack. Edwards had a quiet day and said the result wasn’t great, but a really good effort.
“I want to win here more than anything, but we get to come back and we’ll do it,” Edwards said. “Right now I’d take second, that would be great but we’ll keep digging.”
“It’s so neat for me to come here,” said Edwards of his home track. “It’s humbling and I can’t wait to come back.”
