JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"We've just got a monkey on our back and can't get it off for some reason. I don't know why. The guys have worked hard, so you really can't complain. We've dug ourselves a hole; now, we've got to dig ourselves out.

"We can do that and Texas is a good place to start. The No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger should be very competitive there. Our team has faced adversity this season. Now, it's time to turn things around and start performing the way we're capable. My guys want to run up front, win races. They're hungry. We expect our best finish of the season at Texas and start our climb back up the ladder where we belong."
