ELLIOTT SADLER:

"We're disappointed with the finish at Talladega last week, but we're very pleased with the way the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge raced. We led laps. We had a car challenging for the win. Unfortunately, we were wrecked late in the race and didn't get that opportunity. The way we've run the last few weeks, I can't wait to get to Lowe's for Saturday night's race. Last week was our first DNF of the season. We have six races remaining to finish the season strong and get our program ready for Daytona and the 2008 season."
