Kluever on racing in Bristol:

"Bristol is a pretty cool track, but I've not had much luck there. It reminds me a lot of Slinger back home in Wisconsin. It's fast and there is no room for error. I got wrecked out of both Busch races at Bristol last year, but we actually had a decent run in the truck there in '05. After two DNF's in a row between me and Greg (Biffle) at Atlanta and Vegas, we really need a good run this weekend to put us back up in the owner points. We also can't afford to lose any more good race cars. You know you won't come out of Bristol with a perfect race car, but if you can load it up with a front and rear end still on it then you've accomplished something."

Eddie Pardue on racing in Bristol:

"Bristol is a tough track mentally and physically on the drivers. Running 300 laps around that place takes a toll on you, especially with 42 other cars you have to worry about at all times. Todd had some bad luck at both races there last year, so we hope to help him turn that around this weekend. We're taking one of Greg's cars from last year and with a little luck we'll get it back to the shop in one piece."
