Jarrett Discusses Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway

How different is the Busch Series today compared to when you raced in the series on a regular basis?

"It's very difficult, those guys are serious and that's how it has always been. I think you have a lot of good race teams and drivers involved in the Busch Series. Especially you have a lot of the Cup teams and owners who have multiple cars in there. You really have to be on top of your game. I like what I've seen, especially on the Toyota side with Jason Leffler getting a win a couple weeks ago and David Reutimann sitting second in point standings. He's done a good job all year. They claim that David was really fast when they went over to test and they are going to build me a car just like that. I hope that is the case. Bristol is a fun place to race. As much as anything it is going to give me an opportunity to get some laps on that race track before I get in that Cup car. This is going to be a very big weekend for us with UPS's 100th Anniversary. This is a big weekend so anytime I can get on the track with extra lap time is going to help me. I'm looking forward to getting back in a Busch car."
