ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES:

"To be in a position to challenge for the win in the Daytona 500 is awesome. We had the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger in that position Sunday. Ray (Evernham, who filled in for Josh Browne as team director and called the race from the pit box) made some great calls. I'm very proud of my team. We're ready for California. All three Evernham Motorsports cars should be very competitive this weekend as our speedway program is solid. We had a great test at Las Vegas and will be taking that same car to California. Getting off to a good start this season was a priority for our team. Just like last week, we'll all pull together and utilize our strengths -- determination and dedication."

QUICK FACTS:

* Sadler's last visit to Fontana in the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge saw him wheel his Charger to a 13th-place finish after starting 18th.

* California Speedway was the sight of Sadler's second career win in the fall of 2004.

* In 11 career starts at California Speedway, Sadler's accumulated only two DNF's.
