From Duane Cross, in his NASCAR.com column 3/20/07:

"I'm not sure anyone is looking forward to Bristol. The number of unknowns is through the roof with the Car of Tomorrow, but it's the same for everybody. We'll all learn how the new car is going to work and what unexpected issues pop up. I can say the track and the racing will be the same. It's a bumpy, rough track and when you finish 500 laps there, you feel like you've been in the ring with Mike Tyson -- the young, bad-ass Mike Tyson."
