BURNEY LAMAR, No. 32 Dollar General Camry, Braun Racing

Are you looking forward to your first start of the season? "I am really looking forward to getting back in the car with Dollar General on the side. Being with Braun Racing is everything a driver could hope for and I'm looking forward to making the most of this opportunity. At Bristol, it's important to unload a good car. Trent Owens (crew chief) and the 32 guys have done a great job at that this season. As you can imagine, I have high expectations for myself this year, and I am focused and ready to give 110 percent."

SCOTT LAGASSE, JR., No. 11 Incredible Pizza Camry, CJM Racing

What are your expectations for your first race at Bristol? "The goal is to continue with what we've been doing -- that is keep the car in one piece, log more laps and gain the respect of the other drivers. Bristol is a tough race track, but as a rookie if you can keep your nose clean you've done something right. Bristol is a track you have to mentally and physically prepare for it. I'm hoping my short track racing background will give me a little extra edge and I'll spend the first practice session getting familiar with the track. When race time comes around, I'll rely heavily on my spotter to help me avoid any on-track incidents."
