NOTES & QUOTES

* Kluever is currently 22nd in the Busch Series point standings.

* The No. 06 team will be taking chassis #1104 to Darlington. This was Kluever's primary car at Bristol, but was damaged in an accident during practice so he did not race it.

* This will be Kluever's first start at the track "too tough to tame." Although he has never raced there, it will always be special to him since he won his job at Roush by beating nine other drivers at Darlington in the 2004 "Gong Show."

Todd Kluever on Darlington:

"Darlington is such a cool track. I am so excited that I finally get the chance to race there. I was so disappointed that the trucks did not run there last year, but now I finally have the opportunity to race there.

"My first time at Darlington was in 2004 when I was competing in Roush's 'Race for the Ride,' or as most people know it - the gong show. I won my ride with Roush at Darlington so it's always been one of my favorite tracks although I've never actually raced there. It's a very demanding track because it is so fast, so hard on your tires, and there is such a fine line between running the best line up against the wall and actually hitting the wall. I haven't earned my first official 'Darlington stripe' yet, but if that is what it takes to get a good finish for the 3M team, then I'm all for it."
