Jamie McMurray on racing at Bristol: "Racing at Bristol is a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it -- it's our first race at a short track this year. It will be an intense 500 laps -- that's for sure. I've finished in the top-ten at Bristol three times, and I would definitely like to match that this weekend. We've struggled some in the last couple of weeks and our team needs a solid finish."

Crew Chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Bristol: "This team has had a lot of success at this track [Bristol]. We've won here four times in the last eight races. It's a matter of staying out of trouble and not getting your car torn up too bad before the end. We'll be missing our rear tire changer, Joe Kruschek, who injured his hand in Atlanta. He'll be sorely missed and the rest of the guys will certainly be thinking of him as they rally together."
