JASON KELLER ON BRISTOL

"Bristol is a place where anything can happen at any place on the race track and you have to be ready for anything. It's also a place where you can have a lot of fun. There is a lot of action and you just have to try and put yourself in a position to take advantage of track position at the end of the race."

CREW CHIEF TODD GORDON ON BRISTOL

"Bristol is a good race track and I'm looking forward to the excitement of short track racing. Jason has won there before and I feel it is a track where we can do battle with everyone including the Cup teams."

CREW CHIEF TODD GORDON ON THE FIRST THREE RACES

"Considering that we totally revamped our whole program over the winter; new chassis, new bodies and a new motor manufacturer, I think realistically we've shown improvement and have a solid foundation to build off moving forward."
