Biffle on Bristol: "Bristol is just so intense. You can't relax at all. It's like walking a tightrope for 500 miles and holding your breath the whole time. No other track is like that. It obviously takes a good racecar to win at Bristol but it helps to qualify well. Sometimes it can be hard to pass and if the field gets backed up, it doesn't take long for the leader to start lapping cars. If you have a bad qualifying run or have to start in the back for some other reason, it can be difficult even with a good car to get back through the field. The night race has a whole different level of excitement and it should be a great race for the fans."

Erwin on Bristol: "I cannot emphasize how important qualifying is at Bristol. It is crucial at Bristol both for pit selection and track position. Pit road is so tight there so a good pit stall can make all the difference. Passing there is difficult because the track is short and there are limited opportunities to make a pass so being up front from the beginning is a huge asset. You have to have an aggressive but experienced driver to do well there and we definitely have that so if we can get him up front, he should be able to keep it there."
