JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"Maybe this is exactly what the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger team needs - a trip to the most treacherous track on the schedule. There's only one formula for success at Bristol - run as hard as you can for as long as you can. Keep the car out of trouble and there's a good chance you will be able to run a long time and get a good finish.

"When you unload at Bristol, you've pretty much have what you will race with. With 43 cars on the track, the field is strung out all around the half mile. It's difficult to pass, so track position is very important. You will probably see teams taking chances on pit strategy just to get to the front of the field. It may pay off, or it could bite you. At Bristol, you pull the belts real tight and go hard for 500 laps."
