Scott Riggs on Kansas Speedway: Scott Riggs, driver of the No.10 Nestlé Nesquik Ford Taurus and Busch Series Raybestos Rookie of the Year contender, is looking forward to his first Busch Series start at Kansas Speedway.

"Kansas Speedway is a fast smooth track," said Riggs. "Tire wear won't be a factor, so I can get up on the wheel and drive the car the way it needs to be driven, cautiously aggressive."

Harold Holly on the Nesquik Racing Team's Performance: Holly says you have to take the good with the bad.

"When we started out the year, Scott was incredible right out of the box," said Holly. "Because of his early accomplishments, several people forgot that he is a rookie and has a lot to learn. This has been an explosive year for him-from the wins early to the baby. I know he can win. He has already proven himself and he needs to have faith. We are working to get our heads back in the game, and sometimes that is not easy. Nevertheless, we are working on it and the Nesquik Ford Taurus will be back in Victory Lane before the year is up."

Equipment: The Nesquik Racing Team is taking the same car to Kansas Speedway that Riggs raced at Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte (Start 12th/Finish 3rd) and at Texas Motor Speedway (Start 12th/Finish 4th) earlier this year. Jeff Green drove this same car to Victory Lane for the inaugural event at Kansas Speedway in late September of 2001 as well as a third and sixth at California and Chicago respectively.
