"The last 10 laps of the recent Sprint All-Star race at Lowe's Motor Speedway proved that the double-file restart concept works well.  Short tracks have been doing this for years, and I have no doubt that it will enhance the excitement of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing.

"I applaud NASCAR's decision to implement this change immediately.  Close competition gives our fans a great entertainment value.

"I can't wait to see if we have a double-file restart for that extra mile at the upcoming LENOX Industrial Tools 301.  It will be like throwing a t-bone steak into a dog pound, everyone will be going for it!"
