Sterling Marlin Quotes---

What makes Bristol so special?

"I guess it's just the atmosphere. It's just like a college football stadium. Everything is so close and it's a half-mile track. I guess there's not a bad seat in the house, and you can see everything going on. There's a lot going on all night. There's a lot of passing, and smoke flying and sparks flying. It's mayhem all night. I think fans like to see a real close race. Sometimes you get caught in something. You're following somebody and they check up and you've got to check up. It's like a chain reaction. Somebody runs into the back of somebody and turns them around and takes out two or three cars. It's a track where you've got to have a lot of patience. You can have a better car and get up under somebody and they keep chopping you and chopping you and finally you run out of patience. You're going to turn him around if he don't get out of the way."
