Two Debuts: The Yellow Transportation 300 is a huge weekend for Vision Racing. In addition to Randy Lajoie making his debut for Vision Racing. The team will look to make their NASCAR Busch Series debut on Saturday stepping up from the ARCA RE/MAX Series where they posted an impressive fifth place finish at Daytona International Speedway in February.

A Few Leads To More: Vision Racing will compete in a few more NASCAR Busch Series events this season preparing for a potential full NASCAR Busch Series schedule in 2007. The team attempted to make their NBS debut at Richmond International Raceway earlier this month with rookie Josh Krug but came just a little shy of making the field.

Impressive Backing: Americash Advance.com will hold the primary sponsorship effort this weekend at Kansas. Americash Advance. com is a leader in the small loan cash advance industry that provides loans to consumers through direct deposit into the consumers bank account within one business day all from the comfort of their home or office. It is a great service to consumers who are in the need for quick cash up to $1,500. The funds can literally be sent to the consumers account within 30 minutes of making the application with Americash Advance.com.

Don't Forget About Associate Sponsors: Meeks Lithograph and Henry Primeaux Kia will serve as associate sponsors on the No. 37 Chevrolet Saturday. Both sponsors have made the transition from the ARCA RE/MAX Series to the NASCAR Busch Series. Vision Racing plans to have both sponsors back for the full 2007 season.

Hometown Flavor: Vision Racing will be on the heels of their home track at Kansas Speedway. Earlier this year, Vision Racing competed in the ARCA RE/MAX Series event with rookie driver Will Vaught. The team ran competitive in the race, but exited early after being taken out by another competitor settling for a disappointing 30th place finish.

No. 37 Americash Advance.com Chassis: Vision Racing will unload a brand new chassis for Lajoie this weekend at Kansas. Lajoie will pilot a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo with horsepower provided by pme (Pro Motor Engineering).

Starting Berth Likely At Kansas: While the Vision Racing team would like to make the Yellow Transportation 300 on time, the team will be eligible for a past champions provisional should any flaws strike the team in qualifying. The team is eligible for the final starting position (43) in the race, thanks to Lajoie who was crowned champion in the NASCAR Busch Series in 1996 and 1997 driving for BACE Motorsports.
