SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"I am looking forward to racing Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend in the Stanley Tools/Valvoline Dodge. We had a strong showing there last spring. Even though we weren't that fast when we unloaded, we got the car dialed in during the race and made a run to the front in the final laps. Evernham Motorsports typically runs well at the intermediate/downforce tracks like Atlanta and we definitely want a top-10 finish to put what has been a difficult start to the season behind us. Rodney and the guys are bringing a brand new chassis to the track this weekend. Its not just one of our older cars with a new body on it, this is a brand new piece. It should be fun shaking it down in practice and seeing what we have for the race on Sunday."

QUICK FACTS:

* In the spring race at Atlanta Motor Speedway last year Scott Riggs qualified 29th and finished a solid 11th.

* Riggs best finish at Atlanta was ninth, coming in the spring of 2005.

* Riggs only has one DNF in five career starts at Atlanta.
