JEREMY MAYFIELD NO. 19 DODGE DEALERS INTREPID R/T

THE NO. 19 TEAM
"We've made some changes throughout the year. Our cars are changing. We're trying to find out what I like with the cars. We've tried stuff that Bill likes and that I like and stuff that Casey's done last year. We've just been all over the board. I can honestly say that we find something every week, but it sometimes feels like we hit it and then we lose it. We know what we've got to do to fix it, and I feel like we're on the same page now, more than we've ever been. Bill's won the last couple of races and I think that's helped us. I feel like we're not far away from the No. 9 car and where we need to be. It's not just about equipment. It's about the guys and all of us getting along and understanding what we need to do and just setting out and doing it and really challenging our goals and doing the best we can."

TESTING AT DARLINGTON
"We've been planning on testing here for quite some time now. One reason is it's just a good race track for me, plus Mountain Dew and Dodge. Those are just some of the reasons why we needed to test here and learn something so we can come here and win races. We built a new car and we wanted to make sure the car was good - good enough to come here and run and be competitive and have a chance to win. This is a tough place to test at because tires go away, the track's slick and there's no rubber down and everything else. It's been a good test so far in everything we've seen. Yeah, we want to be better, but we've got a plan and we set out to achieve that. So far we've done everything we've said we were going to do. I feel like we've learned a lot of information."

CHANCES AT MICHIGAN
"I think Darlington will definitely be a shot at a win for us, but we're going to Michigan this weekend and we're going to do the best we can there. I was pumped up about going to Michigan before I came here (testing). We'll take it one weekend at a time though. We've got Bristol coming up. We're certainly going to give it our best shot. We want to run good week in and week out. It'd be cool to have one (win) right before we came here and then win here. That'd be two in a row too. We're going to do the best we can to win in Michigan and give it all we've got and go to Bristol and do the best we can there."
