Elliott Sadler:

"I'm ready to get back in a racecar. I've enjoyed the offseason but seeing Daytona getting closer on my calendar is always a lot of fun. Daytona is a place where we know we're going to be strong. Last year we won some stages and hopefully we do it again and win the race. Starting off the season on the right foot can go a long way"
