ELLIOTT SADLER QUOTES

"I feel good about the way we are running. We had a great run at Michigan and the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Charger was awesome at Bristol. We didn't get the finish we wanted at Bristol, but we had a top-five car. It's cool to be that fast two weeks in a row. We will use the same Evernham .Motorsports chassis at California that we raced at Michigan.

"I still have a lot to learn about the Dodge Charger. It does not react to the same adjustments I've been used to the last seven or eight years. I've got to learn that as a driver and kind of feel my way through that. To come out of the box and get the first top-10 finish of the season for this team and run as well as we did at Bristol is very important to me and I think it was very important to those guys (No. 19 Dodge Charger team). Right now I think everybody is excited at Evernham Motorsports and we're looking forward to building a good foundation, building a good relationship with my guys and sponsors and moving along the rest of the year to get ready for the Daytona 500 next year."
