Scott Riggs Compares the NASCAR Busch Series Opener to the First Day of School: Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Nestlé Nesquik Ford Taurus, says coming to Daytona International Speedway in February is like starting a new school year.

"Daytona in February is like the first day of school all over again," said Riggs. "It's exciting starting a new season and I hardly sleep the night before the first [NASCAR] Busch Series track activity. Then there are the new kids in class and of course the principal's office. It's all relevant."

Riggs on Working with New Crew Chief, Doug Randolph: Riggs enjoys working with Randolph and feels he will learn a lot from the former Winston Cup Crew Chief.

"Doug's style has been a great addition to the team," said Riggs. "He is very methodical and he makes every effort to educate me on his reasoning. Doug not only makes changes to the No. 10 Nestlé Nesquik Ford Taurus, he helps me understand how the change will or should affect the car. That helps me learn so I can give him the feed back he needs."

Riggs and the Nesquik Racing Team Look for Consistency in Their Hunt for the Championship: Riggs is confident in the Nesquik Racing Team and their potential for the Championship, despite the stiff competition.

"The Nesquik Racing Team is committed to making a run for the Championship this year," said Riggs. "We know we can win races, but it takes consistency, something [Scott] Wimmer and [Jason] Keller's teams have. The point's race will be interesting this year. It could be one of the stiffest point's races in a few years."

Equipment: Riggs will drive the same car he drove in the July Daytona Race. The Nesquik Racing Team put the same car back together following the Talladega race in April.
