Travis Pastrana QUOTE: “The team did an absolutely amazing job. We didn’t have the best qualifying run but we were able to stay out of trouble and raced our way into the top 15. Bristol is everything people have described plus some. Tonight was probably one of the most fun experiences I have had. It was fun just slipping and sliding all over the race track. We learned a lot and accomplished our goal of making every lap.”
