SCOTT RIGGS QUOTES:

"This weekend is going to be a challenge for this whole Stanley Tools/Valvoline team. There are a lot of road course specialists in the cars that are outside the top 35 so qualifying is going to be intense. But I am very confident in our team's testing and preparations for this event. We went to Road Atlanta to test with Boris (Said) and then again at VIR with just me last week. The No. 10 team has run well in the COT races so far this season so I am optimistic heading into this weekend that we will make the show and climb our way back inside the top 35."

QUICK FACTS:

* Scott Riggs has three career starts at the 1.99-mile road course in Sonoma, with a best start of 16th in 2005.

* Riggs' best finish of the 2007 season came in a COT race at Martinsville this spring, where he came home eighth.

* Riggs has an average starting spot of 10.4 in his five COT races this season.

* Based on Valvoline Evernham Racing's position in Nextel Cup Owners Points the team will need to qualify for this weekend's race on time.

* Scott Riggs currently sits 36th in Nextel Cup Owners points, 41 markers outside of the top 35.
