"Things happen so fast there, from every part of Bristol, with the people right on top of you. The fans, the trucks and trailers, the race cars, the track’s fast, everything’s so intense that it creates an awesome race.

"Every time I go to Bristol, I look forward to it and definitely the night race, because to me, the night race - there's is nothing like it.  I can’t wait to get to Bristol this year, I think it is going to be good. I have never won a Cup race there, I think we were in second or third or something, but never won.  So it is definitely one of my goals to figure out how to win a Cup race at Bristol.

"It’s definitely frustrating because I have felt like I’ve had the best car there more than once and I’ve on won one time there.  Things have happened, there’s nothing you can do about a lot of them.  Other times maybe I have put myself in a bad spot, but it’s just one of them places that are… it’s an awesome track.  It’s a lot of fun to go to, the fans get excited, and I think that is a big part of it, how excited they get makes everybody else excited, it’s great for NASCAR."
