What are your thoughts on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway?
"I'm excited to go to Bristol (Motor Speedway) because it's always been one of my favorite places to race. Every time Shane (Wilson, crew chief) and I have been there, we have been fast. Richard Childress Racing has a great history at Bristol and they build fast trucks. There is no more worrying about aero and no more worrying about all the things you worry about with larger tracks, it's time to go back and have fun short-track racing."
