Ragan on racing in the Nationwide Series at Bristol Motor Speedway:
“We let one get away a few weeks ago, but I can assure you that won’t happen again.  The Discount Tire team is close to getting that first win. The good thing is we have always been strong at Bristol. We got a top 10 in the spring race and I am hoping for an even stronger finish this time around.  If we have good pit stops and take care of our race car, I don’t see any reason not to bring home a solid finish.”

Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:
“Bristol is all about survival.  If we can keep our race car in one piece we will be okay. David has had some success there in the past, so we know a top-10 run is expected.  We have to bounce back this weekend. We took a hit in the owner points after Las Vegas, but I know this team is good enough to come back stronger than ever.”

  • David Ragan has an average starting position of 16.5 and average finishing position of 13.0 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
