ELLIOTT SADLER:

"It's always good to return to a track that you have won at. It gives you confidence. It builds confidence within your team. We hope that confidence plays a positive role for our No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge team with weekend at California. We're back in the Charger this weekend.

"It would be great to have a race without a problem that puts us behind early. That seems to have happened frequently to our team lately. Last week at Bristol, it was a flat tire early in the race. Those things happen, but it would be great to avoid those problems and run competitively the whole race."

QUICK FACTS

* Sadler earned his third career victory at California Speedway in 2004.
