Ragan on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

“Racing at Bristol is always action-packed and its one of my favorite tracks to visit on the circuit. The night race there is my favorite, but the day race is still always exciting. We struggled a bit on the Cup side the last few races, but we’ve had fast cars so far this year so I can’t wait to get there and see how fast our UPS Ford will be. We need to get some solid runs for these first five races to build up points and get back inside the top 15.”

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

“David has a Nationwide win under his belt at Bristol so we are looking forward to trying to carry that success over to the Cup car. Track position is so important at a place like Bristol, there are so many cars on just a half-mile surface that it can be all too easy to get caught up in a wreck or get lapped. The key will be to qualify well to start with good track position and to not get caught up in someone else’s mess.”
