Busch Ready For His First Cereal Bowl Race

HUNTERSVILLE, NC - It's been called "The Bull Ring", "The Cereal Bowl", "The Giant Fish Tank", and "The Roman Coliseum". This Sunday, 43 Winston Cup drivers will take it on, including rookie Kurt Busch. Bristol Motor Speedway is a fan favorite, and Sunday thousands of fans will be lining the inside of the bowl prepared for yet another great battle in the Winston Cup Series.

Last week, before heading to Darlington, Busch had a chance to do some testing at Bristol, to get a feel for this infamous track.

"Both the car and I needed some breaking in at Bristol," Busch said. "It took a few laps to get acclimated to the half-mile, high bank, but after a while, I felt real comfortable. There were 10 other cars out on the track testing, and my qualifying setups and race setups were comparable to all of them. The crew and I left feeling good about our test."

Darlington, another famous track on the Winston Cup circuit, left quite an impression on Busch and his car during last Sunday's race, but for many rookies, finishing the race at Darlington can be half the battle.

"There are many tough tracks in the Winston Cup circuit and this year, my rookie year, I get two of them (Darlington and Bristol) right in a row," Busch said. "I'm glad that I have the experience of Darlington under my belt, and the crew and I definitely learned a lot. I feel because of that, we are better prepared for Bristol."

After some good solid testing and his first race at Darlington behind him, Busch is ready for the challenge that awaits him at Bristol.

"I really enjoyed the track alone at Bristol, I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like with 42 other cars on the track," Busch said.
