SCOTT RIGGS-10-Nestle Nesquik Ford Taurus (Finished 4th)

"The main thing that happened is that the driver sort of made a mistake last night in Happy Hour. The fifth lap in Happy Hour, I got into the wall in Turn 4 and didn't really get a chance to feel the car out and get see what it was going to feel like. When we started the race last night, it was pretty good, but the longer we ran, the freer the car got. It got too loose where I couldn't get aggressive with the steering and couldn't get racy with everyone else. We made some pretty drastic adjustments on that last pit stop last night before the rain and we didn't get a chance to feel what those adjustments were going to do, and then, of course, you have a brand-new race track, all different, all clean. We started pretty good at the beginning and then we started getting tight. We just had to keep making adjustments the entire time, trying to free it up. There at the end, we sort of got off sequence because of the last night's pit stop, and we used an extra set of tires last night and we didn't have that set of tires to put on that last pit stop. We just had to put some gasoline and make some wedge adjustments. I think that all of the guys did a great job and I'm pretty happy with a fourth-place finish considering everything that happened in Happy Hour last night."
