    Last Race: Darren Ingram dominated most of the race at Martinsville, only to be caught up in a late incident. Ingram's misfortune played right into Jacob Craigo's hands, allowing Dodge to return to victory lane and CRI to nab its first W of the year.
    This Race: Another short track event means many of the same drivers are expected out front. Craigo will look to repeat, while drivers like Ryan DeCosta and Matt O'Reilly are looking to turn around some poor starts to 2018.
    Race Info: 250 laps/125 miles
    2017 Pole Sitter: JJ Jordan (16.474sec)
    2017 Race Winner: K. Batson [Ret.] (91 laps led)
    Previous Winners:
    • S. English [ie] - 2016, 2013
    • D. Mahoney [Ret.] - 2015
    • B. Nixon - 2014
    • W. Slates - 2012
    • M. O'Reilly - 2011

    I think we have a legitimate shot to win this race. A good points day will be something to build off of, but knowing a win likely locks us in, I think we all know what I'd rather have.

    "Hopefully we can repeat our performance of last week but win instead of placing second."

    “We’ve really gained momentum these past few weeks, hopefully we’ll build on it this week and come out on top.”

    RB- Short tracks have definitely been our achilles heel but we had a solid run last week, so hoping to carry that momentum into Bristol and be able to contend with the front-runners.

    Ahhh yes, Bristol. One of my better tracks in the Cup series. Here's to hopefully pulling off a win, whether it be myself or one of my V2E guys. Let's go get 'em!

    "We have a lot of momentum these last couple of races with two top 5 finishes in a row. Hopefully we can keep that up and find ourselves up front again with our JEGS, Bass Pro Shops Chevy and contend for the win."

    Harris: Bristol is a shitstorm when it comes to the racing. It's a ton of fun but you gotta watch every side of you to stay out of wrecks or avoid potential incidents.

    Last week we had a strong car until a part failure bit us in the ass. Maybe this week we will have that strong car until the end of the race.

    We need a good qualifying effort to stay in a good place with the traffic all day.

    Well, SRD brought a couple rockets to Bristol again for this race.

    Both the 8 and the 29 are looking forward to good runs here as we do like Bristol.

    “Damn, we just can’t seem to qualify this year. Doesn’t matter, I’ll just be a popular fantasy choice.”

    Well that was not the start to the race weekend that we had in mind. Still trying to figure out what went wrong and why we qualified so poorly.

    @BrendonH12: "HMS brought another bad fast Chevy Camaro this weekend, and we proved that in qualifying! I think it's very important to have a good starting position at a track like this, and we did just that - we qualled in the top 10! Hopefully we can keep this Verizon Chevy running up front and maybe get a win come race day!"

    RB- With the way we usually qualify it's hard to be upset with 11th, just looking for a solid run to keep us up in the standings.
