Victories in both 2005 and 2006 mark Kenseth’s best finishes at the half-mile high-banked track. RACE INFO: The Food City 500 at Bristol (0.533-mile) begins at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 17th. The race will be broadcast live on FOX, Sirius XM Channel 90 and PRN Radio. From the Cockpit: Matt Kenseth: “It was pretty exciting to get the win this past weekend, but this week in just another week, and we need to keep plugging away to get the best finishes that we can. I can’t wait to get to Bristol this weekend because I thought that the racing was really competitive last year. It’s another totally different style of race track for us to start of the year with, so I’m really curious to see how we’re going to do, and I’m just ready to get back into the car and get to work this weekend.” From the Pit Box: Jason Ratcliff: “I really don’t think we’ll see much different performance or balance issues this weekend at Bristol with the new 2013 cars since aerodynamics don’t play as big of a roll at there as it did last weekend at Las Vegas. I think we’ll see some good old fashioned racing at Bristol like we always have, and I’m excited to see how our weekend goes for the No. 20 Husky team.”
