SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"This is one of those races that we marked on our calendars at the beginning of the season as one to really look forward to. We had a lot of success there last year, but I feel like we also left a little on the table so we want to improve on that. However, the setup we ran last year is not necessarily going to work as well this year. The track has changed and our cars have changed. With the practice we got here last week and in the test session I feel like we found some things that are going to work for us so I can't wait to get back on the track this weekend with the Valvoline/Stanley Tools Dodge."

QUICK FACTS:

* Riggs has been one of the top cars at Lowe's Motor Speedway recently. Last season he took the pole in both Nextel Cup races.

* He has qualified in the top-five in three of his six career races at Charlotte. Leading to an average start of 12.8.

* Riggs knows how to pilot the 1.5-mile quad-oval. He led 124 laps there last season, including 90-laps in the 600.

* Valvoline Evernham Racing is currently sitting 37th in Nextel Cup Owner's Points and will need to qualify for this weekend's race on time.
