THE MODERATOR: Also joining us is Chad Knaus, crew chief of the 48.
Chad, obviously we talked to Jimmie yesterday about the Hendrick dominance, obviously you've had a lot of success the last few weeks with the All-Star win, the pit crew win and the resurgence of the Hendrick teams the last few weeks, especially at Charlotte. Talk about your strategy coming into Dover this weekend and the win sitting up here today.
CHAD KNAUS: Yeah, it was a great weekend much like what Jimmie just referred to. It's a brand new race car, so you have always have to have a bit of an acclimation period for your car when you get to the track just to learn the intricacies of it.
Man, we came off the truck and we were real fast right off the box. We were trying a different set up and Jimmie felt like we needed to do something different. He made a big call personally for us to shift the setup in the race car and we did and he felt like it was some big changes.
So we had to significantly change the race car once we got here. First in qualifying, Jimmie did a great job with the car then and that led us down the path we were today. Man, it went great. It went really well. It was a lot of fun.
Obviously everybody at Hendrick Motorsports is putting a lot of effort right now from the engine and chassis and body department trying to get the cars built because the sport is evolving so quickly with rules changes and things of that nature, it's difficult to stay on top. To get to where we are, a solid three or four weeks for Hendrick Motorsports is nice. - nascar media
