JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"The No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger was running on the lead lap when the checkered flag fell at Bristol. This team worked hard to make that happen. The race wasn't without incident, just like the first four, but we overcame the obstacle and finished 16th. This team has accepted the challenge. Faced with adversity, they dug down and worked harder."

"We had a good run at Martinsville last spring and led a lot of laps. With the improvements we've made to the Dodge Charger since then, I think we can be very competitive. Everyone on this team just needs to remain focused and continue working hard and we'll keep picking up spots each week."
