ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES:

"Texas Motor Speedway is one of my favorite tracks. We had a great win there in 2004. Ironically, I was able to hold off Kasey (Kahne) in that race. Now, he's my teammate.

"Our Dodge Charger runs well at the mile-and-a-half tracks. I don't see anything different this weekend for the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger team. I think we have a good basic setup for the mile-and-a-half tracks. We need a good finish and kick our program into high gear again. We're confident we can do just that at Texas."

QUICK FACTS

* Sadler drove to his second career victory at Texas Motor Speedway in the spring of 2004.

* Sadler has always qualified well at the 1.5 mile quad-oval. In the last race at Texas he qualified his Dodge Charger on the outside pole and is averaging a starting spot of 12.9.

* Sadler is used to leading the pack at the Great American Speedway. He's led laps in six of his 10 career starts there.
