Tony Stewart, No. 20 Home Depot Impala SS, met with media members at Bristol Motor Speedway and discussed the track surface, his qualifying run, the addition of the three feet to the track, comparing his championships under the old and new system and racing at California.

HOW'S THE RACE TRACK? "The track's awesome. I don't think you could have asked them to do a better job with the race track than what they did."

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT THE MOST? "It's smooth. I mean to be able to pour concrete and make it as smooth as they did, that's pretty remarkable. I think they did an awesome job here."

ON THE TRACK BEING THREE FEET WIDER AND IF HE'S HAD A CHANCE TO NOTICE IT: "It's a whole new race track. I mean you notice everything because it's just a totally new race track right now."

HOW IS THE CALIFORNIA TRACK TO GET AROUND? "It seems a lot slicker than Michigan does. It may be the mix of asphalt that they use there but it seems like.you can still move around like you can at Michigan but it seems like you're either all the way down or all the way the up. It's one or the other."
