SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"We have accomplished a lot in this first season for Valvoline Evernham Racing. The one accomplishment left on the table would be to win a race and this weekend is the perfect opportunity for that. But first things first we want to lead some laps and get a top finish to break back into the top 20 in points. That is where this team belongs, especially considering we have one less race than everyone else. We are taking a chassis this weekend that I tested at Charlotte earlier this season and I have a lot of confidence in. It had an average run at the first Dover, but we know where we missed the setup that weekend. This weekend I think we picked the right Charger for the track."

QUICK FACTS:

* Riggs's best finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway is 15th. He posted it in the 2004 season finale after starting 25th.

* Riggs has one top-five, seven-top 10s, and two poles so far this season in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series. He has led 131 laps in 2006, compared to 18 laps in 2005 and 15 laps in 2005.

* Last weekend, the No. 10 Stanley Tools/Valvoline Dodge Charger started in 42nd position and finished 22nd at Phoenix International Raceway.
