JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"It's only the third race of the season, but it's a very important race for the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger team. Our performance hasn't met expectations. There have been contributing factors, but good teams overcome obstacles. We know our potential.

"Now, it's time to put it all together at Las Vegas and have the performance we know we're capable of producing. The performance potential is there because of the effort the entire Evernham Motorsports team put forth during the latter part of the 2005 season and during the winter."

JEREMY MAYFIELD AT LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

Jeremy Mayfield has started in all eight NASCAR Cup Series events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. From the inaugural Las Vegas 400 in 1998 to last year's UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400, Mayfield has earned two top-five finishes, two top-10 finishes and has led 39 laps at the racetrack. In his first visit to Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he finished fifth, moving up 27 spots from his 32nd place starting position.

In last year's UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400, Mayfield started 26th, battled handling problems, finished 20 and earned $117,220.

MAYFIELD'S LAST VEGAS BESTS

Mayfield's best finish at Las Vegas was also his best finish of 2002, when he moved from an 18th starting spot to finish second in only his third race as driver of the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge. His best starting position came in 1999 when he qualified seventh in the Las Vegas 400. He finished the race 17th that year.

UAW-DAIMLER CHRYSLER SPECIAL PAINT SCHEME

The Nos. 9 and 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Chargers will run special paint schemes in Sunday's UAW-Daimler Chrysler 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Flames will extend down the length of each car and the hoods will feature the race logo for the UAW-Daimler Chrysler 400.
