Matt Kenseth on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway: "We've posted a string of top-ten finishes at Bristol over the last couple of years, so I'm looking forward to racing there this weekend. Bristol is so unique and comes with its' own set of challenges. There's a lot of beatin' and bangin' and it is intense racing. It's about time we had some luck go our way this year, so if we can avoid trouble I think we can bring home a strong finish."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway: "We're bringing the same car we brought here the last two years and have had good results. We've run well at Bristol for the last few years so, like always, it's a matter of survival and coming out at the end with the least amount of damage to the car. If we can do that, we have a chance to finish up front."

Busch Crew Chief Cully Barraclaugh on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway: "We tested here last Thursday and really figured a few things out. We were fast and I was pleased with how the car ran. Matt always runs well here so if we can just stay out of trouble I think we will have a solid run."
