Elliott Sadler focused on the Magic Mile

"We had a bad handling car last week and finished ninth with it. All in all it wasn't that bad, but it goes to show what a difference my pit crew makes each week. You all are going to see a different Elliott Sadler at these tracks the second time around."

--Elliott Sadler on gaining momentum.

VIEW FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT WITH ELLIOTT SADLER:

"I'm pretty confident about New Hampshire this weekend. We finished 10th there last year after taking a provisional. The Richmond car ran really well once we got the setup right so I think Raymond and the guys will make the proper adjustments and get us up front. Loudon is a fast, flat track -- you carry a ton of momentum into the corners. Track position will be key again and let's hope Mother Nature cooperates again this weekend."

VIEW FROM THE PIT BOX WITH CREW CHIEF RAYMOND FOX III:

"Loudon is a real flat track. We are taking the car we ran at Richmond earlier this year. That car didn't qualify real well, but it raced well. Then we ended up getting taken out and crashed it while running 10th and ended up 37th. It's got a brand new body on it and I think it should be pretty good. We will have to have a setup that allows the car to turn good through the long sweeping corners."

SPOTTER BRETT GRIFFIN'S VIEW FROM ABOVE THE TRACK:

"Loudon is a great race to spot because it has a lot of characteristics similar to a short track but it's a fast, one-mile track. It's tough to clear the car coming off of turn four but we have an awesome view from above for the rest of the action."
