Stenhouse on Bristol: “Bristol lap times are almost the same in both Nationwide and Cup series. We’ve run decent there in the Nationwide series so I feel confident going into this weekend. We will focus on qualifying well because you want to start up near the front. I think our Best Buy Ford should have a solid finish if we can start close to the front, make the needed adjustments throughout the race, and stay out of trouble.” Scott Graves on Bristol: “Bristol is a tough track because anything can happen. It is a long race so we just need to make sure we stay up front and out of trouble. Track position is crucial so we will focus on qualifying trim during our first practice. If we can stay out of trouble and execute on pit-road, I feel confident that we can get a top-10 finish in our Best Buy Ford.”
