SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"We had a decent run last weekend and we hope to build on that this weekend. I think this Stanley Tools/Valvoline team has a pretty good package when it comes to the COT, though circumstances didn't allow us to show that at Bristol, Phoenix and Richmond. Dover is going to be unique in that we are carrying a lot of speed into these turns, I am sure we will be working hard to get our Avenger turning through the center of the turns."

QUICK FACTS:

* Scott Riggs qualified a strong second in the Nextel Cup race at Dover last fall. That same weekend he also claimed the pole for the Busch Series race.

* The first top-five finish of Scott Riggs' Nextel Cup career came at Dover in 2004.

* Riggs best finish of the 2007 season came in a COT race at Martinsville this spring.

* The No. 10 Stanley Tools/Valvoline Avenger (COT) has an average starting spot of 10.2.

* Scott Riggs currently sits 37th in Nextel Cup Owners points, 108 markers outside of the top 35.
