"I can tell you this, I am so ready to get back to Bristol. I know a lot of the drivers hate going there, but that is a place that energizes me. I walk in there and it makes me want to go out and race. If we can run like we did the last time, we'll all be very happy." - Kenny Wallace, driver of the No. 23 Stacker 2 Dodge

LOPEZ ON THIS WEEK'S RACE IN BRISTOL--

"We are looking to have another solid run this weekend in Bristol. We had a great run last time we were there. Kenny really loves racing at Bristol and that is a plus because so many of these guys just cringe when they think about going there. He knows how to get around the track, so we need to give him a good car for Friday's qualifying and then get a good pit selection, although it isn't as important as it used to be. Everybody used to think that it was necessary to have a pit on the frontstretch until they [NASCAR] modified the way they get the cars in and out of the pits, which made it more equal. But, we still need to get the car handling good for Kenny and make the car stick to bottom of the race track for him."

WHAT STACKER 2 CAR WILL THE TEAM RUN THIS WEEKEND--

The #23 Stacker 2 car Kenny Wallace will run this weekend is car #45. It's the same car that they raced with at Bristol Motor Speedway in the spring, where they took a provisional starting spot, but rallied to a 10th-place finish.
