Scott Riggs On California: Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Nestle Nesquik Ford Taurus and Raybestos® Rookie Contender is looking forward to his first Busch Series start in California.
"Running in California is a lot like running in Vegas," said Riggs. "There isn't one particular thing that will help you. It will take the right combination of handling, track position and fuel mileage. Fortunately, the Nestle Nesquik Racing Team understands the right combination."
Riggs will have a large cheering session this weekend in California: Nestle, USA is headquartered in Glendale, CA, less than 60 miles from California Speedway. They are hosting hospitality for over 150 guests.
"There will be a lot of yellow Nestle Nesquik Racing hats in the grandstands this week," said Riggs. "Having that large of a sheering section will put a little bit of pressure on me. I want to do well in front of the 'hometown crew'. It will be great to get back to California to see some of the great folks at Nestle who have been very supportive of me and the entire ppc Racing organization."
Equipment: The Nesquik Racing Team is taking the same car to California Speedway that they took to Las Vegas earlier this year. The car was raced once previously in Homestead, November 2001 (Start 1st/Finish 9th).
"We had a strong run in that car and I led the first lap of my Busch Series career in Las Vegas, "said Riggs. "If the alternator held up, we would have finished in the top-five, at least. The No. 10 Nesquik Ford Taurus was the only car strong enough to give Jeff Burton a run. "
