Sauter on the Aaron's 499:

"I'm excited about getting another chance to drive the No. 36. I really like racing at Talladega and I have confidence that the Tommy Baldwin Racing Chevrolet will be fast this weekend. I look forward to putting together a strong qualifying run and race this weekend."

Baldwin on Talladega:

"I'm looking forward to putting last weekend behind us and moving on to Talladega. Our superspeedway program has always been good so we are heading into the race weekend confident that we will have a good showing with both our cars.

Johnny's back in the No. 36 again and Aric Almirola will be in the No. 35 this weekend. Also, we will have two new sponsors on the cars this weekend, with Baldwin Automotive on the No. 36 and Mohawk Northeast on the No. 35."

* Sunday's Aaron's 499 will be Johnny Sauter's second attempt in the No. 36 Chevrolet this season, and the first on a restrictor-plate track.

* The No.35 (Chassis 27) is the backup TBR car that finished 13th in the 2nd Gatorade Duel at Daytona in February and finished 43rd in the 2010 Daytona 500.

* The No. 36 TBR car driven by Robert Richardson Jr finished 18th in last year's Talladega fall race, the AMP Energy 500.

* Tommy Baldwin is currently 39th in owners points, 169 points behind 35th position
