Elliott Sadler ready for Richmond.

"This is racing - you can't be perfect every week- although it would be nice because we really, really try. Consistency wins championships.""
--Elliott Sadler on California.

VIEW FROM THE DRIVER'S SEAT WITH ELLIOTT SADLER:

"I consider Richmond my home track. If this M&M's team can win there in front of my hometown crowd it would be pretty incredible. Robert Yates Racing has had some very good luck there in the past and I think we will be one of the cars to beat. I also love racing at night, it adds a ton of energy to the race."

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

"We have run pretty well at Richmond in years past. I know Elliott likes the track so if we can give him a good enough car I think he can get the job done."

SPOTTER BRETT GRIFFIN'S VIEW FROM ABOVE THE TRACK:

"Richmond has always been one of the more challenging tracks for spotters because of where we were located. We used to be located in turn one and our vantage point limited our visibility in turn three. We actually couldn't see the bottom of the race track at all in turn three. This race we're going to try it from a different location and I'm optimistic about how much better we'll be able to see. This is the first night race of the year and we're at a short track so that adds a lot of excitement for everyone."
