Buckshot Jones / Track Notes Bristol Motor Speedway

"Bristol is a tough track because the racing is so close. There's not a lot of room to pass unless you're up front and you continuously have to deal with lapped traffic. That's why track position is so important there. Our goal for our first time at this track in a Winston Cup car is to qualify well, so we can be up front from the start."-Buckshot Jones, driver of the Crown Fiber Communications Pontiac
