Jarrett Discusses Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway

How important is this weekend for UPS?

"This is obviously a very big weekend for UPS with the 100th anniversary celebration. There will be a lot of UPS employees and customers there this weekend and the fact that we'll be running both the Busch and Nextel Cup Series events with the special paint scheme we have planned for this weekend goes to show how big of an event this is for UPS. I'm looking forward to getting into the Busch Car on Friday and that will be the first Busch race for me in a couple years. I think it will be a benefit to get extra track time especially given the fact that we're dealing with a new track surface even though the Car of Tomorrow is so different than the Busch Series cars. But we're looking forward to racing this weekend and helping UPS to celebrate its Centennial celebration."

Do you have any Sunday plans after Bristol?

"Probably after 750 laps in two nights I'll be sitting on the couch. If I had to just guess, because of lack of time and going to California the next week I have a short week because of commitments. It is probably going to be spent with Zach and the kids. As much with Zach -- he is practicing baseball some more because he is going to play in a fall baseball league. That's probably what Sunday afternoon is going to be like. I'll take Sunday morning off and then get after it in the afternoon."
