“I think what makes Bristol so much fun is that it is a throwback to how most of us started out racing on short-tracks around the country on a Saturday night. Bristol is an intense track that requires your focus every lap. I guess it is a love hate thing, depending on if the car is good or not. If you are slow, you just feel like you are in the way all day. We have run pretty well and had some decent finishes the last few trips there, so hopefully we can keep that going in the right direction this weekend.”
