DAVE BLANEY BACK IN THE NO.10 CAMRY FOR THE FORD 300 AS PART OF HISTORY MAKING TRIPLE DUTY WEEKEND:
* Dave Blaney will pilot the No.10 Hass Avocados from Mexico Camry in the Ford 300 NASCAR Busch Series season finale. That race is just part of a triple-duty weekend Blaney has planned for Homestead-Miami Speedway. He will also compete in the Craftsman Truck Series race on Friday night and the Nextel Cup Series race on Sunday. This is the first time in Blaney's career that he has run in all three series in a single weekend.
* 2007 has been a great year for Dave Blaney and the Braun Racing team. In 23 races in the No.10 Camry, Blaney and the team brought home six top-10 and three top-five finishes.
* Blaney has logged four Busch Series starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He has three top-15 starts and one top-10 finish to his credit. He also has seven Nextel Cup starts at the Homestead, Florida 1.5-mile oval to his credit, including three top-10 finishes.
* As the season winds down and only one race remains, the No.10 Braun Racing team is proud of their accomplishments this season. In 34 races to date they've collected 11 top-10 and three top-five finishes. They have also logged 14 top-10 starts including one pole at California Speedway when they made history by capturing Toyota Camry's first pole! Competing with six different drivers this season, crew chief Trent Owens led four of them to top-10 finishes. The No.10 Camry has been in contention for wins several times this year. The team hopes they can reach that goal this weekend! Text Box: 2007 season at-a-glance No. Starts: 34 Wins: 0 Top-Fives: 3 Top-10's: 11 Average Start: 15.7 Average Finish: 19.1 DNF's: 6
BLANEY ON RACING AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY:
"This is the last Busch Series race of the season and I really want to end the year on a good note. We've struggled some this year and haven't gotten the finishes we deserve, but we've had some great runs! This is a great bunch of guys that all work really hard to give me a fast car every week and our goal for this weekend is to get the No.10 to Victory Lane. It's long overdue!"
The No. 10 Hass Avocados from Mexico team will compete with chassis #37 in Saturday's Ford 300. This was a brand new car build for the race at Lowe's Motor Speedway in October where Blaney started fourth and finished 36th due to engine problems.
