SADLER SET FOR ANOTHER ROUND AT NEW HAMPSHIRE
ELLIOTT SADLER'S VIEW FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT:
"I think the car we are taking this week will run well. I used to dislike Martinsville because I never really had a car that would run well there. That all changed this spring because I finished fifth with a car that worked for me and the type of flat track Martinsville is. I think there will be a lot of strategy involved this weekend -- there always is at NHIS. The difference is that now we have Todd Parrott making decisions along with Raymond and we will have more direction on the way we want to go with things. Other than that, there isn't much to say about the last New Hampshire race because we didn't run very well, I just hope this weekend we can leave the monkey that's been on our backs at home."
CREW CHIEF TODD PARROTT'S VIEW FROM THE PIT BOX:
"We had plans to take our Richmond car to New Hampshire for the second race. It was a brand new car, but after the wreck Elliott had the car was damaged pretty bad. So the back up plan was to take the car we ran at Martinsville -- and Elliott finished fifth with there. It's a good car so we would like to bounce back from last weekend."
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."
