Kenseth on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

“We’ve had a lot of success at Bristol over the years. Being a concrete, high-banked track that is so small, really makes Bristol stand out from other tracks on the circuit. Racing at Bristol feels like the seats are on top of you so it’s just a place with a really great atmosphere to race. It has changed a lot since they re-configured the track surface a few years ago; but it’s still such a fast short-track and problems can definitely happen in an instant. Qualifying is really important at Bristol since track position can really make or break your race sometimes. I’m looking forward to this weekend at Bristol and hope to have a great weekend for the Crown Royal Black team.”

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

“Bristol’s a place where anything can happen since it’s one of the best tracks for short track racing. Bristol is fast and treacherous, but hopefully we have a good balance on the car where we can qualify well on Friday and then stay out of trouble during the race. Matt has had some really great races at Bristol so we’re headed there hoping to earn a good finish to continue to build on our results at the start of this season.”
