Scott Riggs looks to repeat his victory in the Music City,

Mooresville, NC - Scott Riggs, driver of the No. 10 Nestle® Nesquik® Ford Taurus, believes the more things change, the more they stay the same. He has visited Nashville Superspeedway's Victory Lane twice with not only a different team but with a different series and when Riggs returns to the Music City based facility to defend his title from one year ago, he has yet another change with his new crew chief and native Tennessean, Doug Randolph. Despite the variation Riggs' confidence is great.

As Riggs looks back at his wins in Nashville, he relishes the accomplishments he has attained despite change.

"To win twice at the same track gives me a boost of confidence," said Riggs. "To win in the truck and the Busch car, well, that is just a different level."

Riggs' first win at the speedway was the fourth victory of his first full campaign in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2001.

His second win was the first of his Busch Series career and helped to catapult him to the Rookie of the Year honors in 2002.

Change has been consistent for Riggs and the 2003 season is no different. This season marks another first for the driver, but one he welcomes.

"This is the first year in my professional racing career that I have been with the same team for two years in a row," said Riggs. "I have been fortunate enough to land with very strong teams. Teams that know what it takes to win championships and the Nesquik Racing Team is the epitome."

With his winning history at Nashville Superspeedway, Riggs is looking forward to tackling yet another adjustment with his new crew chief.

"Doug is my change this year," said Riggs. "We had a few minor changes with the Nesquik Racing Team but the one that most affected me was the crew chief transition."

"Doug and I have a great line of communication," Riggs continued. "I feel like we are back on track to building consistency because of him. I would love nothing more than to give him a win in his home state."

Randolph is originally from Morristown, TN. He began his racing career with LD Ottinger's Busch Series, Grand National Division team while attending the University of Tennessee. In 1988 Randolph earned his B.S. in wildlife and fisheries and joined Ottinger's team full time.

In 1991 Randolph moved to North Carolina and made the leap to Winston Cup. He returned to the Busch Series this year when he joined ppc Racing and the Nesquik Racing Team.
