Notes From Atlanta: Jeff Green, driver of the No. 10 Nestle NesQuik Chevrolet, was content with his 13th place finish in the Aaron's 312 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

"The end result was pretty good, all things considered," said Green. "It would've been nice to be in the top-10, but from where we had to come from, with the miscue in the pits, it was all we could do. If we had 20 or 30 laps longer, we could've been in the top-10, but we just ran out of time. We made the best out of a bad situation. We couldn't have asked for much better."

Thoughts about Darlington: Green has his own thoughts about the keys to success at Darlington.

"I have one pole at Darlington," said Green. "The track has been pretty good to me and I've finished in the top- 10 a few times, but never had any great success there. If you don't handle the just car right, you can get into a lot of trouble at Darlington. It's a pretty tough place. I think it's probably the toughest place we go to, driving- wise. It's so wore out that your tires go away pretty quick. Tire conservation is key, but they will wear out no matter how hard you try to save them, but you also can't abuse them. The track is challenging because it is so tight and so narrow. It's built to run 150 m.p.h. and we're running 180 m.p.h., so the key to success there is not hitting anything. If you make one mistake you are going to be in the wall. So if you can run all day and not have a mark on your car, you will be in the top-10. They don't call it a 'Darlington stripe' for nothing."

Equipment: The NesQuik Racing team is taking the same car to Darlington that Green finished second with at Rockingham two weeks ago.
