ELLIOTT SADLER:

"I've been fortunate at Daytona with three straight finishes of sixth or better. The sixth in the season-opening Daytona 500 is the best finish of the year for the 19 team. That's disappointing. We left Daytona expecting to be competitive every weekend. It's not because we haven't put forth the effort. We just need something good to happen and get some momentum. We're looking forward to getting back to Daytona for the night race. It has turned into a special event. The Fourth of July weekend is all about fireworks and there are usually fireworks on the track as well as after the race. This would be a great weekend for us to get our Dodge Charger back up front and create some fireworks of our own."
