Back to the Last Great Colosseum ... On Friday evening, Conley returns to the site where he made his first-career Nationwide Series start. In the spring event the 22-year-old RCR driver qualified 12th and brought home an 11th-place finish. Conley also ranked first among drivers inside the top 15, as well as inside the top 10 for quality passes and fastest drivers late in a run.

About IAVA ... Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) will adorn the hood of Conley's No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro at the half-mile bullring. IAVA is the first and largest organization for new veterans and their families, with nearly 300,000 members and supporters nationwide. IAVA is dedicated to standing with the 2.8 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan from their first day home through the rest of their lives. The organization supports new veterans in health, education, employment and building a lasting community for vets and their families.

What are your expectations heading back to Bristol Motor Speedway for the second time?
"Now that I'm going back for the second time, I already have mental notes prepared of things that I would like to search for in the feel of the car. It'll be nice, because Bristol will be the first track that I've revisited in my Nationwide schedule. If we could unload fairly fast, it'll be a lot easier to search for a feel that I may have been looking for in my first time around. If we don't, I now have enough experience to get us where we need to be. At the end of the day, if we could put ourselves in a spot where we could battle out for a top-five it'll be a big success."

Bristol is a physically demanding track, how have you changed your workout?
"I haven't changed my workout much. I'm still training at RCR with Ray Wright, but focusing a lot on shoulders and neck strength, as well as endurance. I'm a small guy and need to be able to handle the Bristol corners."
