Justin Allgaier on Bristol Motor Speedway:
“Bristol is one of my favorite tracks on our circuit. Not only was it the site of my first win, but the track is so unique you have to remain focused for the entire race. Making just one mistake could end your night quickly. We are coming of a strong run in Montreal and we should continue it this Friday evening at Bristol.”
