Earnhardt Jr.: "I really look forward to the races at Talladega. We have a great restrictor plate program at DEI (Dale Earnhardt Inc.) and I think the showing for all three of our teams at Daytona proves that. Finishing first and second in the Daytona 500 was incredible, but you have to look at the entire Daytona Speedweeks to see how strong we were, such as in the Budweiser Shootout and the qualifying races.

"I thought we had a great car at Talladega last year. We didn't get to show it in the spring race (contact on lap one knocked Dale Jr. from contention), but we led a lot of the second race with the new (aerodynamic) rules. We're ready. I'm excited."
