STERLING MARLIN (No. 40 Coors Light Dodge Intrepid R/T)

NOTE: Marlin will start in the No. 1 position for the Mountain Dew Southern 500 because Friday's rain washed out time trials and the field will line up by rankings in the NASCAR Winston Cup Standings.

"It's a good spot for us. This spring we started last and won the thing. It takes a good handling car at Darlington, and it doesn't matter if you start in the front or in the back. If the car drives good you'll be OK, but it's a plus to start up front.

"We brought the same car we won with in the spring, and we've got the same shock, springs and swaybar and everything up under it. We'll start Happy Hour tomorrow, hopefully we'll get Happy Hour in, and we'll start right there tomorrow and see what we've got.

"I've been harassing the boys a little bit in the truck, and fixed the bolt holes in the door, standing around mostly, watching the Outlaw Josey Wells, that's about it.

"I've seen a lot of things and done a lot of things, but Bristol seems to be one of the tracks that tempers really get out and Martinsville. It's close, tough racing and somebody gets into somebody and takes out two or three cars. Everybody gets pretty upset."
