NOTES & QUOTES
This will be Kluever's third start at Bristol. He finished 13th in last year's Craftsman Truck Series race, and was the victim of an accident in the spring Busch race.
Todd Kluever on Bristol:
"I'm hoping we have a better run at Bristol this weekend than we had in the spring. I got loose and wrecked our primary car during practice on Saturday morning, but we had a pretty decent back-up. We had some damage early in the race and got a few laps down, but the guys made a bunch of adjustments and got the car better. We gained some spots as cars fell out of the race, but with about 50 laps to go we got wrecked and our day was done. At least there is no snow predicted this weekend so that is an improvement right off the bat. Bristol is a fun place to race, but a tough place. It's a lot of fun if your car is handling well and you can avoid all the accidents that will happen around you. It reminds me a lot of Slinger back in Wisconsin with the speed you carry around such a small track."
