Elliott Sadler and Ricky Rudd will both go to back-up cars after hitting the wall during happy hour. Sadler will drive the same Taurus he won with at Texas earlier this year.

ELLIOTT SADLER - No. 38 M&M's Taurus - "I really don't know what happened. The first car had been working great all day and I really wasn't up to speed yet. I just let the 18 car pass me and when I went into turn three it just didn't turn. It just kept straight, so either I was up just a little bit too high and got in the gravel or what, I don't know. I saw some other guys have problems with that corner (three and four). I was behind Ricky Rudd right there at the end and he did the same thing. His car never turned and it hit straight head on. I just don't know. I was really careful there at the end to try to stay below what I thought the trouble spot was and I'm gonna have to do that tomorrow. It's gonna cause some interesting racing tomorrow if you're caught on the outside."
