QUOTES
Carl Edwards on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"Scotts has done so much for my career. They have been on the car during some of my biggest wins. I am excited to have them sponsor the race.  It would be very, very special to win and be standing in victory lane with all the Scotts folks at the EZ Seed 300. I think this race is going to be really tough. The Nationwide field seems closer than ever. This race track you never know what is going to happen, and who is going to rise to the top. Like a lot of people, I am going into this race ready for anything. It should be fun. We have a fast Scotts Ford Mustang. I really like racing the Nationwide cars at Bristol."

Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"Racing at Bristol is always exciting. We always run well here so we hope that we can get this No. 60 Scotts Mustang in victory lane of the Scotts EZ Seed 300. To win this type of race, you have to have a good handling chassis and try to avoid all the wrecks that are typical of Bristol."
