No. 19 Stanley Tools Dodge is Racing for Wins

STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Elliott Sadler and the No. 19 Stanley Tools Dodge team are hoping a return to New Hampshire Motor Speedway will help bring some good luck back their way. With the Chase field now set, Sadler is setting his sights on reaching victory lane at least once in the last 10 races.

Sadler and the No. 19 team recorded their first top-five finish of the season in Loudon, New Hampshire in June.

The No. 19 team is coming off a 37th-place finish at Richmond and is looking for a quick rebound as it visits New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the final time in 2008.

Elliott Sadler Quotes

On racing at New Hampshire: "We ran really well there in the spring and brought home a one of our two top-fives this season. It's a tough racetrack and track position is extremely important. The track is flat which makes it hard to pass, so qualifying and pit stops become very important. New Hampshire is a great track and it just keeps getting better."

On the final 10 races: "We want at least one win. It has been a long time since we visited victory lane and I miss it a lot. The Chase guys are all going to be running for wins and a championship, but the rest of us outside of the Chase are going for wins. We are far enough inside the top-35 where we aren't worried about that, so we feel like we can pretty much forget about points racing and go for broke. We want to finish 13th, but honestly, I want to win right now."

Chassis Info: The No. 19 team will race chassis 253; which Sadler raced to a fifth place finish at New Hampshire in June. Chassis 221 will serve as the backup.

Sadler at New Hampshire: In 19 previous starts, Sadler has earned five top-10 starts, five top-10 finishes and one top-five finish. He led 39 laps in his career at New Hampshire.
