"I don't know if I had anything for Brad," Mees said. "I'd just settled into my groove and I don't know if I could have run him down. At the red flag, I thought, 'Don't do this to me, you owe me.' It was really good to win. I needed this for the confidence after I had a so-so Daytona. The credit goes to the team. We relate very, very well. They never let me down."
