Scott Riggs On Texas: Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Nestle Nesquik Ford Taurus is looking forward to his first Busch Series start at Texas Motor Speedway.

"I learned a lot about Texas Motor Speedway while running in the Craftsman Truck Series," said Riggs. "The key to a strong finish at Texas will be patience and tire management. I have an advantage over some of the other drivers, too. I ran on the track after the new surface was put down, so I know where I can take my car and where I can't."

Riggs Holds the Craftsman Truck Series Qualifying Record at TMS: Riggs set a track qualifying record when he took the pole last October.

"It's always a great feeling to sit on the pole," said Riggs, "but to break a previous record at the same time is just plain incredible. I had the pole for both Truck races last year, one because qualifying was rained out. Who knows? Maybe we'll see the No. 10 Nesquik Ford Taurus sitting up there this time."

Harold Holly on Riggs' Test Session at Texas: "When we tested, Scott wanted to hold the throttle wide open," said Holly. "He knew the tires would not hold, but he likes the fast tracks so he wanted to give it all he had. The good thing is that Scott knows his limitations, and by his limitations, I mean what the car can do. He was able to turn some really fast laps, so we are heading back with the car to beat."

Equipment: The Nesquik Racing Team is taking the same car to Texas Motor Speedway that Jeff Green won the inaugural event at Kansas Speedway with in late September of 2001. In addition to Kansas, the car competed at California and Chicago in 2001 finishing third and sixth respectively.
