Jeremy Mayfield, No. 66 Best Buy Monte Carlo SS, met with members of the media at Atlanta Motor Speedway and discussed how the ride came together for him with team; expectations for the four races remaining in this season and expectations for next year.

Select quotes from driver interview:

ON HOW THE DEAL CAME TOGETHER WITH HAAS CNC RACING: "It came together kind of weird. We have been talking about doing some stuff for next year, I wasn't doing a very good job over at the No. 36, we just weren't clicking or whatever, decided to make a change for next year and Joe (Custer) knew that. So, we were just talking in general, trying to figure out what we could put together and said, hey, let's go ahead and do something now and get a jump start on next year. That is what we did. Just trying to get some people in place and the right people in the right places within the organization. They have a lot of great people here to work with. To me it was a no-brainers, jump in and let's go racing and do the best we can and hopefully it will all pay off."

ON WORKING NEXT SEASON AT THE ORGANIZATION WITH SCOTT RIGGS: "I think it will be cool. Scott is a good driver and I like Scott a lot. We have already worked together well in the past and had no problems whatsoever. I think that he and I respect each other and that is what it is going to take and be good teammates."
