From the Cockpit:

Erik Jones: “After two road courses, I’m really excited to get back to Bristol this weekend. I love the short track races and night races always seem to work out better for me. Having won the race early this year at Bristol, I know we’ll have a fast Camry and know what we need to do to get around the track and be in contention for the win. Bristol is a track that was definitely high on the list of tracks where I wanted to get a win and to have gotten that win so earlier in my career is pretty cool. I’m ready to get to Bristol and get us another win with the Reser’s team.”

From the Pit Box:

Chris Gabehart: “Erik, myself and the entire 20 team are really excited to get back to Bristol this weekend where we picked up our first win of the year in dramatic fashion. In my opinion, there really isn’t a much better place to race than Bristol at night. We look forward to another opportunity to park the Reser’s Camry back on top of the building in turns 3 and 4 Friday night!”
