DODGE IN THE NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES

• Dodge won its first Nationwide championship last year when Penske Racing’s Brad Keselowski won the driver’s title.

• Dodge will field two entries in the Nationwide Series from the Penske Racing stable. Sam Hornish Jr. will join Brad Keselowski for a limited race schedule in 2011.

FROM THE PITBOX

“We’ve had some pretty unfortunate luck to start the season, but Bristol is a place where we can get our season turned around. Brad really enjoys racing there and the extra practice time on Friday will give us plenty of opportunity to get the car dialed in to what he needs. Forward bite is something that we’ll work to maintain throughout the race. If we can do that, then I’m confident Brad can pass a lot of cars on Saturday.” Todd Gordon Crew Chief, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T

DODGE QUOTES: SCOTTS EZ SEED 300

“To me, Bristol is the most exciting track we visit all year and these Nationwide Series cars put on a heck of a show there. The track has undergone a few changes over the last few years – from the resurfacing project to the extension of the soft walls into the straightaways – so we’re still figuring out how much room we have and how we can race. But this kind of racing really fits my driving style. It reminds me of the short tracks I grew up racing in Michigan and Ohio. My 2008 win at Bristol is among my biggest and I would love to add another this weekend.” Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T
