Food City 500 Notes & Quotes
Food City 500
Bristol Motor Speedway
The numbers shift: Entering the race, much was made of the fact that Kyle Busch had won four of the previous six races at Bristol. He crashed early and wound up 32nd. When the circuit returns in August, the Bristol kingpin will be Brad Keselowski, who now has won consecutive races.
Not bad – None of his Toyotas won, but Michael Waltrip Racing made its Bristol mark. Trailing Keselowski’s Dodge and Matt Kenseth’s Ford were MWR drivers Martin Truex Jr. in third, Clint Bowyer in fourth and Brian Vickers in fifth.
4 – Different manufacturers that have won during the season’s first four races.
5 – Keselowski’s career victories.
157 – Leader Greg Biffle’s point total.
$2,053,260 – Matt Kenseth’s earnings in the first four races.
‘It probably wasn’t very exciting for the fans. It wasn’t very exciting for us, either.” – Aric Almirola (19th)
“When it’s your only one (race so far), you have to make it count.” – Brian Vickers, fifth in his first appearance of the season.
