Atlanta II: Elliott Sadler preview

ELLIOTT SADLER: "We always look forward to Atlanta. You can run on the bottom, middle or top. You will see guys rim riding (high close to the wall) the whole race. It's a fun race track. It's fast race track. I think it's one of the driver's ...

ELLIOTT SADLER:

"We always look forward to Atlanta. You can run on the bottom, middle or top. You will see guys rim riding (high close to the wall) the whole race. It's a fun race track. It's fast race track. I think it's one of the driver's favorite places to race.

"You have to make sure you get good fuel mileage. There are usually some long fuel runs, so it has occasionally turned into a fuel mileage race in the past. If you have a car that manages all four tires the same and wears them all the same, you should have a pretty good day. We're down to three more races for the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger this season as we will run the Dodge Avenger at Phoenix and at all events in 2008. We want to stay out of the early trouble that has caught us the last couple of weeks and be able to race hard the entire 500 miles."

QUICK FACTS

* Earlier this season in the spring race at Atlanta, Sadler qualified the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge on the outside pole.
