Todd Kluever on Bristol:

"Bristol is a pretty cool track. I've only raced there once in a truck but it was a lot of fun. It reminds me of Slinger Super Speedway back in Wisconsin. I've raced at Slinger several times and have had some pretty good runs there so hopefully some of that experience will transfer over to Bristol.

"This weekend we have a little less pressure on us since we are now locked in the race since we are going off 2006 points. Having to qualify for this race on time would have been really tough since there are so many cars separated by only hundredths of seconds. Now we can spend more time working on our race set-ups during practice and not have to be as concerned about making sure we get in the race. A huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders having those first five races behind us."
