SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"We have excelled at tracks like Texas and Lowe's so far this season and would like nothing more than to get a top finish at a similar track like Atlanta this weekend. When we ran Atlanta in the spring this Valvoline Evernham Racing team overcame a lot to have a very fast Charger in the end, driving up from 20th to 11th on the last set of tires. I talked with Rodney on Monday and we will be heading to Atlanta this time with the same setup we dialed into it in the spring, but adding a couple of the things we have learned in recent tests at Homestead and Kentucky. There is a new tire we will be using this weekend that is different from the spring race. But I have a lot of confidence that Rodney and the guys will be on top of that."

QUICK FACTS:

* The No. 10 Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge qualified 29th and finished 11th at Atlanta Motor Speedway this spring.
