BRISTOL-- "Bristol is one of my favorite tracks. I think just about every driver will say that. It's a lot of fun. The Braun guys gave me a great McDonald's car in Daytona and I think they'll do the same this weekend. McDonald's has been a great partner with our company for five years and we hope we can take them to victory lane Friday night in Bristol.

$500,000 STANLEY DONATION-- "You always want to win, but that extra incentive is really kind of cool. I hope we get a chance to donate some money. It couldn't be for a better cause. Stanley really stepped up its commitment to kids and to NASCAR and I hope I can reward everyone."
