Carl Edwards on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"We have had a great start to our Nationwide Series season. I'm just excited to get to Bristol where we've had a lot of success and have won before. It will be a fun place to fly the Copart colors, and hopefully, we can extend our points lead and possibly get our first win of the season. It's a really good race track for us and I can't wait."

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"We are taking our Copart Ford Fusion to Bristol looking for a win. We had a great run in Vegas but fell a little short at the end. We have no margin for error this weekend at Bristol. Our short track program is excellent and Carl is arguably the best short track wheel man in the series. I am looking forward to putting our Ford Fusion in victory lane this weekend."
