Daytona II: Jeremy Mayfield preview

JEREMY MAYFIELD QUOTES

"We are essentially a new team. I am the only person currently on the No. 19 team that was in victory lane with the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger last August. My guys work as hard as any team out there today. They're talented. It's a good team. We just haven't found that little something that will provide the balance we need to consistently run up front.

"We're looking at Daytona like a fresh start. We've got a lot of positives happening, it hasn't all come together in our finish yet. We're optimistic that we'll have a good car and a good run down there and it will get this team motivated for the second half of the season."
