"I think Bristol has always been one of those short tracks that everybody loves.  And obviously that’s changed with the different surface and the way they have changed it a little bit, but ultimately it is a great short track.  I really love the banking and I like Bristol Motor Speedway’s banking and I love the fact that it’s concrete and it seems like it doesn’t change a whole lot.  So once you get a car right, it’s typically right for 500 laps which is difficult to get at some other race tracks.  But, just all the history of Bristol Motor Speedway and what people have accomplished there, people like Richard Perry, Darrell Waltrip, and David Pearson and all the guys have done well there.  When you do well you feel like you have done something because of that history."
