Jeff Green On Bristol: Jeff Green, 2000 NASCAR Busch Series Champion and driver of the No. 10 Nestle Nesquik Ford Taurus, is ready to log his first win at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"I've finished second or third at Bristol five times now, so I'm really ready to get my first win there," said Green. "It has been a very good track for me and I really enjoy racing at short tracks. The key to winning at Bristol is to finish with all your fenders on and not get into anybody else's mess. Qualifying up front is key, but you can win from anywhere. You just need the right luck to get to the front."
