SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"I will be the first to admit that road course racing is not my specialty, but the crew has certainly prepared a good Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge for this Watkins Glen. We have made it a point to improve our performance on the road courses. All three cup teams have been to VIR (Virginia International Raceway) to test on two different occasions this year, each time with Boris Said as our instructor. This most recent time at VIR I feel like I improved the most. We are shooting for a solid top 15-finish this weekend. I just want to come home with my best road course finish yet. Also want to mention we are happy to have Hellmann's on the cup car as an associate this weekend. They are a part of the Ultimate Chargers Busch program here at Evernham but are stepping up their involvement to include the Cup car for this race"

RODNEY CHILDERS QUOTE:

"We are focused on improving on our last road course finish (27th at Sonoma). Before this most recent test session at VIR we changed a lot of front end geometry stuff from Sonoma which improved our Charger. Scott was a second-and- a-half quicker during this test session. We also chose not to use the two-seater and instead spent more time with Scott actually behind the wheel working on getting our own chassis better."
