Quote from Elliott Sadler: “The (Kentucky Speedway) pavement has changed a lot. I don’t know what we’ll have until we get there this weekend, but this team sure knows how to get it done. We’ve come so close too many times this season. Our goal on Friday is to bring home another jukebox and celebrate our fast cars in Victory Lane.”
