ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES

"I'm really looking forward to my first race at Lowe's Motor Speedway in an Evernham Motorsports racecar. Ray (Evernham) has had a lot of success at LMS as a crew chief with Jeff (Gordon) and as a car owner with Kasey (Kahne) who won the Coca-Cola 600 in May. I've led in the last five races at Lowe's, including more than 100 laps at the front last fall, but didn't make it to victory lane.

"The No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger team has been improving each week. The results don't reflect the progress we've made. We had a great racecar at Talladega, but a flat tire and accident took us out of contention. It's disappointing, but you can accept it when you have a competitive racecar capable of winning. These last six races are important for our team. We want to finish the season strong and create momentum for 2007. In the process, it would be great to take the No. 19 Dodge Charger team to victory lane."
