KEVIN HARVICK QUOTE:
What are your thoughts on driving the No. 33 Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet at Atlanta Motor Speedway?
"Atlanta (Motor Speedway) is a very fast track. You can race all over it, from the white line on the bottom all the way up to the wall and still be competitive. Atlanta has always been a good track to me. I've had success in all three of NASCAR's top series there and hope that luck continues this weekend, so we can get the Bad Boy Buggies Chevrolet to Victory Lane."
