Scott Riggs No. 10 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Charger

Chassis No. 108 -- This is the same car that Riggs sat on the pole and won the NEXTEL Open at Charlotte with three weeks ago.

SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"I have enjoyed running at Pocono Raceway in the past. It is a track that I think is tough to learn because it has such a unique layout but we have a legitimate shot at a top five finish or even a win. The only tracks coming up that I look at and say we would be happy with just finishing top 15 or top 20 would be the road course events. I just don't have as much experience on those types of tracks. After Pocono, we are scheduled to go to VIR with Boris Said next week. We have a two-seater car we are taking there. So hopefully we can make some gains on the road courses which are the tracks I am least confident about coming up."

RODNEY CHILDERS QUOTES:

"We are taking the same Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Charger that we won the NEXTEL Open pole and race with. Scott's pretty good at Pocono. Last year he was fastest in practice, qualified fifth, and run good up until the end. We have changed some things on the car based on the Kentucky test we did after the All-Star Challenge. These are the same things that helped us for the 600. We really started to narrow in on this type of setup at Las Vegas earlier in the season and have improved it since then."
