Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on Bristol

"This is an up and down track. It's a lot of fun to drive around and race there but it also can be real treacherous. You can get in a wreck very easily, there are a lot of multi-car accidents. It's a race that you look forward to because it's so much fun to drive, but it's also a race you look forward to getting out of, because your chances are so good of getting wrecked. We won the last Busch race and that's exciting. We tested really well there a couple weeks ago in the Winston Cup car. My main goal is to qualify well so we can pit on the front stretch and to complete all 500 laps. If a team can do both these things they're likely to end up with a decent finish"
