Select quotes from driver interview

ON DIFFERENCE IN RACING WITH CHANGES TO BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY: "Well, I think that the groove is going to be wider than it ever has been before. You can race side-by-side. It is still going to be the same Bristol, you are just going to have more options to be able to pass somebody; you are going to have somewhere to go. They did a great job; I was pretty leery of it. This has been one of our best race tracks and one of our favorites to race on so I questioned it a little bit, but so far, everything has been really good."

ON THE TRACK BEING THREE FEET WIDER: "I didn't think three feet is going to make the difference, I think that it is just the progressive banking is what is going to make the difference. Race track is really smooth and they did a good job."

ON JACQUES VILLENEUVE COMING TO NASCAR: "I think it is all in how he wants to approach it and how he adapts to the car. This is a very different form of racing and the cars are very different."

ON DIFFICULTY IN TEAMS AND DRIVERS BEING PREPARED FOR BRISTOL AFTER DELAY OF MICHIGAN RACE: "I think everybody was pretty much prepared for Bristol. It is more getting prepared for California next week and after that."
