JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"We certainly didn't expect to be making the trip to Atlanta 216 points behind the leader in the Chase for the Championship. After Charlotte, we were only 115 points behind the Chase leader and thought we had a good chance to chip away at the deficit at Martinsville.We raced inside the top 10 through most of the first 400 laps at Martinsville.

With less than 100 laps to go, a flat tire took us out of contention for the win and dealt our team a severe blow to its championship bid.

"Despite the setback, the No. 19 Dodge team heads to Atlanta with an aggressive attitude. The opportunity is still there to move up in the final standings. We don't have to be cautious. That makes us dangerous. Slugger (Labbe, the crew chief) is always aggressive. Expect him to turn things up a click or two. It's time to make something happen. Atlanta is the perfect place to start."
