ERIN CROCKER:

"I'm really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the Mac Tools Dodge Charger. We have had a lot of success with Mac Tools on board so I'm optimistic heading into Talladega this weekend.

"Talladega can be an intimidating track but we have had success there in the past. Last fall we started fourth and finished fourth. At the beginning of the season we were able to start on the pole at Daytona and with the superspeedway cars that Gillett Evernham Motorsports is capable of producing I know our chances of getting a top five finish and quite possibly our first win are good."

Quick Facts

* Mac Tools will be back on the No. 98 Dodge Charger this weekend at Talladega.

* In Crocker's last race with Mac Tools on board she finished third after qualifying second at Michigan.

* This will be Crocker's fourth ARCA start at a superspeedway. She has earned an average finish of 11.3 and an average start of 6.7 at superspeedways in the ARCA Series.

* Crocker has two poles this season. The first came at Daytona and the second at Kentucky in July.

* Earlier this season at Kentucky Speedway in June, Crocker started seventh and nearly came away with her first victory, finishing second.
