Jeb Burton on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway

"I've been waiting for our Truck Series race at Bristol all season. It's the kind of track that you can prepare for all year and when you get there, everything goes out the window. After our performance at Michigan, we feel pretty confident about our strategy and approach. Our TSM team keeps putting in the hours to make sure we have the best truck on the track and I couldn't be happier with where we're at right now. Bristol's going to get interesting though. We're going to give it all we've got to stay in p2."
