Q) WITH THE #42 BEING OPEN FOR SURE NOW DOES THAT CHANGE AS FAR AS THE PEOPLE THAT YOURE TALKING TO ABOUT NEXT YEAR? SHOULD WE COUNT YOU AS A CANDIDATE FOR THAT RIDE?
Kurt Busch: It hasnt changed anything, Im good friends with Felix Sabates and I know Chip real well and the whole gang, Max Jones, Steve Lauletta. They came up with that decision not based off any of the talks that Ive had with them but it is a potential opportunity thats for sure.
Q) ARE YOU ANY CLOSER? HAVE YOU MADE PROGRESS WITH WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO NEXT YEAR OR HAVE YOU PUT ALL THAT ON THE BACKBURNER WHILE TRYING TO MAKE THE CHASE?
Kurt Busch: Well, the focus is making the chase and we have four weeks to go and were in great position. Its been neat to feel the energy from the team. We spent a week in Colorado meeting with Denver media and theyve adopted us as like a fifth sports entity for that town. Its been really neat. They talk Broncos. They talk Rockies. And now theyre talking us. So, its cool to have talks with Furniture Row about what we can do in 2014 and beyond. The Ganassi thing came up and other phone calls have happened. Nothings going to change. Were just still really focused on the Chase and what we can do in these next four weeks together. Team Chevy
