Tune In Alert ... Animal Planet's "TANKED" stars Wayde King and Brett Raymer transform Ryan and Krissie Newman's animal rescue facility, Rescue Ranch, on Friday's edition at 10 p.m. Eastern Time on the popular cable network.

What are you expecting at Bristol Motor Speedway?
"I love Bristol Motor Speedway because Bristol is Bristol. There really isn't anything like it. I think it's really fun now that we get to run up against the wall and getting to do slide jobs. There is just so much good racing there. We've had two strong weeks and I don't see why we can't keep this momentum going in the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge Chevrolet."

Are you happy with you new situation and are you settling in?
"We've had two strong performances so far with the good runs at Phoenix International Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the RCR Chevrolet. Everybody at RCR is doing a good job and our partners, Caterpillar and Quicken Loans, are having fun as we continue to get going. I was really disappointed at Daytona in not being able to show our stuff and getting crashed out when we did, because we really did have a fast race car. So, I guess I, in a roundabout way, feel bad about that for two different reasons. I didn't show my stuff early so you could tell, and then at the end, I never could show my stuff because we got crashed. But in the end, it was a relief to know we had a fast car. Sunday at Vegas, we had a really good comeback for our Caterpillar Chevrolet. It was a good effort for the team and it was a good points day. If we keep running like that, we'll put it in the top five and if we do that, we'll win. I'm just proud of the guys and everybody from Caterpillar and Chevrolet and RCR. Everybody did a good job and it was great to do it in front of all our Caterpillar guests. We had more than 700 CAT folks in Las Vegas with us, so I am glad we were able to put on a good show for them."
