Scott Riggs - No. 10 Stanley Tools Valvoline Dodge Charger

SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"Our team had a solid run going last week and we were just looking to be around at the end, but we got caught up in someone else's wreck. Again, we need to make this weekend's race on time. The guys have been working really hard on the Stanley Tools/Valvoline Dodge for this weekend.

"Evernham Motorsports as a whole has had a tough start to the season and that has been a surprise to us. We had several company wide meetings this week to address the problems and learn from each other. Everyone is staying so focused and doing such a good job, that I fully expect our results to improve. When times get tough like this, it is an opportunity for our team to show what we are made of."
