David Stremme on driving at Bristol Motor Speedway
"Bristol is such a great track. It is one of the tracks on the schedule that has an atmosphere you can't describe. The fans are so close to the action and you can hear them cheer over the roar of the engines. You can feel the electricity that surrounds Bristol Motor Speedway."
"Things happen so quick at Bristol. You have to be on your toes for the entire 500 laps. As a driver, it is one of the most physically demanding tracks we go to. After the race you are both physically and mentally drained. I know (crew chief) Roy [McCauley] has been working really hard on our short track program during the off season and I am confident we are going to have another solid performance on Sunday in Thunder Valley."
