FORMER BRISTOL TRACK OWNER HOPES TO RETURN TO VICTORY LANE

Baker Curb Racing co-owner Gary Baker owned Bristol Motor Speedway from 1978-83 and presented Dale Earnhardt the trophy for his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup win in 1979. Baker hopes to return to victory lane in Bristol, this time on the receiving end of the trophy.

GREG BIFFLE ON BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"I look forward to my first short track race in the Red Man Moist Snuff Ford Fusion. We've been successful on the bigger tracks so far this season and I'm excited to see how our short track cars are going to be. Bristol is one of my favorite tracks to race at and I've always had very good runs there. I've been very successful in the Nationwide cars there. I can't wait!"

OWNER GARY BAKER ON BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"It always brings back great memories going back to Bristol and it would be extra special for Baker Curb Racing to get our first win as a team at there. We have two competitive teams with two great drivers that are capable of winning each week. We were so close to our first win in California and I think it's only a matter of time before you see us in victory lane."

CREW CHIEF RICK VIERS ON BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

"After two off weeks, we're ready to get back to racing. Bristol is an exciting track and Greg has ran well there in the past. We are taking car 82, which is the car that Jason Keller finished sixth with at Iowa last season, so it's a very good car. To be successful at Bristol you have to run well during long green flag runs. With the new surface and new configuration, you see more two-lane racing, a lot more passing and fewer cautions. Pit strategy comes in to play more so than before. Do you pit early and try to make it until the end of the race or do you pit later in the race to get fresh tires?"
