Bristol Ward Burton; keeping the nose clean

"Bristol is a survival race. You have to be smart, cautious and aggressive all at the same time. We're going to concentrate on a good qualifying lap, so we can have a good pit stall. We don't want to have to pit on the backstretch. It's all about keeping your nose clean and hopefully come out of there with a decent finish." -Bill Davis

BALDWIN ON BRISTOL:

"We have been very busy this week, too busy to enjoy the win. We turned our Darlington car around and brought it back to Bristol. We raced this car at Bristol last year too. It's a great short track car that has obviously proven itself. This week, we're going to focus on improving our race set-up.

We've had a top 10 car the last two years at Bristol, we need to become a contending car. We made great strides with our qualifying effort so we're fairly confident in being able to get a good starting spot.

BALDWIN ON HIS FIRST WIN:

"It's an awesome feeling. When you're living your dream and you finally accomplish what you have worked your whole life for, it's pretty incredible. I stood in victory lane at Darlington and I couldn't believe that my dreams had finally come true, especially at a place like Darlington. I didn't do anything to celebrate, just sat at home and let it all soak in. Unfortunately, when we get to the track Friday and the gates open, it is a new race and everyone is focused on it. They've already forgotten what happened last week."
