Stacy Compton Quotes

On Bristol: "You go to Bristol knowing you're going to have a bunch of dents, some smashed fenders and some hot tempers - and that's if you have a good day. You can't drive angry at Bristol. And when it's over, you have to leave your emotions - and all the broken parts - behind. "

On the season: "After the problems we've had in the last three races, we needed the 10th-place finish we had last week at Nashville. It was a good day for us in the point standings. We've had such bad luck that we needed this. We ran fifth to seventh all day at Nashville and that was the kind of effort we really needed, especially heading into a place like Bristol. I think we've turned things around."

Crew Chief Chris Rice Quote

On Bristol: "The best part about Bristol is we get a week off after the race. We've been going at it pretty strong now for more than two months, zigzagging all over North and Central America racing every weekend. I can't think of a tougher place to race before an off week than Bristol. The goal is to keep all the fenders on it. If you do that, you're probably guaranteed a Top-10 finish."
