Thoughts from Driver Ron Hornaday:
“Bristol is a track that breeds hard short-track racing.  Bruce Cook and the Smokey Mountain Herbal Snuff team have been working harder than ever to give me a great Chevy truck to win at the fastest half-mile in the world.  I have had some great races at Bristol and look forward to fighting for NTS Motorsports’ first victory of 2013.”
