ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES:

"The Shootout is a fun race and a great way to kick off the season. It is fun for the teams and drivers because there's no points involved. We obviously want to win the race, but the Shootout is also a bit of a jumpstart on getting everyone prepared for the Daytona 500. We want to start the season on a good note. We feel like running the Shootout is a huge benefit for our team, our communication and our pit crew. I'll get some extra time in the draft and we're expecting good results because the guys have put a lot of effort into our Shootout car."

Regarding Being Picked To Win By Some Media--

"I've read where some of the media has picked us to win the race. I believe Jeff Hammond and Nate Ryan picked us to win, so for us that's an honor. The media realize our potential. It's our goal, as a team, to reach and exceed that potential".

QUICK FACTS:

* Elliott Sadler is making his third Bud Shootout start, but first in the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger.

* Sadler's best start in the Shootout came last year when he started sixth.
