Riggs, Auto Value-Bumper To Bumper ready to tame the Irish Hills

STATESVILLE, NC (August 14, 2007) - For the third consecutive season, Gillett Evernham Motorsports and its drivers Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs, and Elliott Sadler will be a part of the Auto Value-Bumper To Bumper family.

Scott Riggs will take his second spin of the 2007 season behind the Auto Value-Bumper To Bumper / Valvoline Dodge this Sunday at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

After a one-week hiatus, Scott returns to the seat of the No. 10 Dodge in hopes of continuing the team's climb into the top 35 in points. He hopes to finish one spot better than his career-high finish of 2nd in 2005:

"This weekend is important for us," said Riggs. "(Michigan) is a track that we know we have an opportunity to do well at. Rodney Childers and all the guys have been working to make these cars better for intermediate tracks.

"I've had some success here in the past and hopefully that repeats itself so we can get this team back to the point where we're not worried about qualifying in on time every weekend."

At Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Gillett Evernham Motorsports cars switched to the 2006 Charger nose and body in hopes of turning the team's luck around for the remainder of the 2007 season. Riggs' team will continue with that game plan at Michigan, entering a car that qualified on the outside of the front row in last year's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
