Scott Riggs - No. 10 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge Charger Race Facts

Info: Same car that won the Nextel Open last season and finished 10th in the All-Star Challenge.

SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"I am glad we have the Nextel Open on Saturday. Not making the race at Darlington last weekend has been the low point of our season so far. This weekend is an opportunity for this Valvoline Evernham Racing team to get things turned around starting with a race that we won last year. We don't have to worry about points, and we are locked into the show, which is a relief. We can just go all out to the finish. Our goal as an organization is for Elliott and I to take the top two spots and transfer into the All-Star Challenge."

QUICK FACTS:

* Riggs performed well in the Nextel Open last year. He qualified on the pole, led 29 laps and won his way into the All-Star Challenge.

* He started 17th and drove his way to a 10th-place finish in the All-Star in 2006.

* Riggs has two starts in the Nextel Open and one in the All-Star Challenge for Evernham Motorsports.
