Darlington Raceway -- March 16, 2002

Scott Riggs On Darlington: Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Nestle Nesquik Ford Taurus is looking forward to his first Busch Series start at Darlington Raceway.

"Darlington is a driver's track," said Riggs. "The track sets the pace, not the driver. If a driver is not taking care of his equipment and running the line that is agreeable with the track, you can guarantee that car will leave with a 'Darlington Stripe'. I learned that when we tested at Darlington in early February."

Riggs on Testing at Darlington: "I was glad Harold decided to test at Darlington," said Riggs. "After testing at Daytona and Talladega, it was nice to get on a track that would challenge me. At the speedways I just held my foot on the floor and held on the wheel. At Darlington, I had to work the car to get the right line and I learned how to manage the tires better. That will definitely come in handy under race conditions."

Equipment: The Nesquik Racing team is taking the same car to Darlington Raceway that Riggs drove to a fourth-place finish in Rockingham earlier this year. This car is the same car Jeff Green drove to victory lane at Rockingham in the fall of 2000 as well as Charlotte in the spring of 2001.
