LoanStar Partners with No. 62 in Fort Worth: Michael Annett's No. 62 Toyota Camry will proudly sport the LoanStar Title Loans brand this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. A partner with Rusty Wallace Racing since 2008, the LoanStar logo has appeared on the No. 62 and No. 64 entries for select races throughout the last four Nationwide Series seasons. LoanStar's last race aboard Rusty Wallace Racing's No. 62 car was at Texas Motor Speedway in November 2010. Annett and his team owner, Rusty Wallace, will sign autographs at the LoanStar Title Loans location at 305 SW Wilshire Blvd. in Burleson, Texas on Thursday, November 3 from 6-7 p.m. CT.

RWR Toyotas Pay Tribute to Russ Wallace: With the passing of Russ Wallace earlier this week, both the No. 62 and No. 66 Rusty Wallace Racing entries will honor him by displaying his name above their driver and passenger side doors for Saturday's Nationwide Series event at Texas Motor Speedway. Russ molded his children and grandchildren's careers in the sport of racing, and to honor his legacy the organization will pay tribute through their race cars this weekend.

Michael Annett on this weekend's event in Texas:

"We've got a lot of special things happening for our team this weekend, and most importantly we are running our race cars in honor of Russ Wallace with his name above our doors. Russ was responsible for bringing one of the most legendary families to NASCAR, and it's a huge honor for me to be able to be a part of the Wallace racing family. Not only driving for Rusty and alongside Steve, but in the Nationwide Series with Kenny and Mike as well."

"We are excited to add LoanStar Title Loans to our 2011 sponsor line-up for this weekend's race in Texas. LoanStar has a strong presence in the state of Texas, so we're looking forward to giving them a strong finish in front of their home state crowd."

Mike Moore, Vice President LoanStar Title Loans, on partnering with RWR at Texas:

"We are very excited to team with Rusty Wallace Racing again for this weekend's race in Texas. We're looking forward to having Rusty and Michael out to our Burleson location on Thursday and seeing Michael on the track in the No. 62 LoanStar car in Saturday's race."
