Elliott Sadler on Bristol Motor Speedway: "I won my first Cup race at Bristol so it's a place that has always meant a lot to me. I love to race there. It's an exciting race for the fans and there's just something extra special about racing at night in Bristol. I really look forward to racing there. It's a short track, which means anything goes, and it's a handling track too, so we'll have to make sure that we've got the handling of our Hunt Brothers Pizza Ford Fusion right on target or it could be a long night. We've got some good momentum on our side after last week's race and Todd Parrott and I are really communicating well, so I've got some pretty high expectations for this weekend."

Crew Chief Todd Parrott's Thoughts on Bristol Motor Speedway: "The night race in August at Bristol Motor Speedway is probably the most exciting race of the season for a lot of people. A lot of things happen--a lot of wrecks, people getting into each other and tempers starting to flare up. You have to have a car that turns well in the center and has good forward bit off. Elliott won his first race there and it's a place that he likes a lot. We've had some success there together in the past so we're looking forward to racing at Bristol."

Chassis History: The No. 19 RPM team has prepared chassis No. 278 for this weekend's event. This is the same Ford Fusion the team ran in the first race at Bristol Motor Speedway this season.

Sadler will be pulling triple duty this week at Bristol Motor Speedway. In addition to his normal duties behind the wheel of the No. 19 RPM NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, Sadler will pilot the No. 2 NASCAR Camping World Series truck on Wednesday evening and the No. 33 NASCAR Nationwide Series entry on Friday evening.
