ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES:

"We ran very well at Atlanta last year. Kasey has won there. We've got a good intermediate program at Evernham Motorsports. We're looking forward to Atlanta this weekend. It's a fun racetrack. You can run on the bottom, middle and top. There's never any disappointment at Atlanta. Some of the best, closest races we had have come at that speedway. We always look forward to going there. We've got a lot of horsepower and our intermediate program is very well stocked at Evernham's. We expect the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger to be very strong this weekend.

"We're in the top 10, but we must improve our communication during the race. I have to do a better job telling Josh (Browne, the team director) what the car is doing. In turn, Josh and the team have to make the right adjustments. If we make good decisions and keep a good handle on the No. 19 Dodge Charger, we put ourselves in position to challenge for the win and have good finishes."
