* The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 will be TJ Bell's second time racing at Lowe's in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Bell marked success as he posted an impressive top-10 finish in his first attempt competing his way around the 1.5 mile oval track during the 2007 season finishing in the ninth position. Bell also competed in an ARCA race at Lowe's back in the 2004 season where he drove home another top-10 finish as he completed the race again in ninth place.

* The Red Horse Racing #11 Toyota Tundra Team led by crew chief Rick Gay is ready to have lady luck back on their side after two unfortunate race weekends in a row. Bell drove his way during the first three races of this 2009 season to post some of the highest driver ratings in addition to posting a top-5 finish in just the second race of the season. Unfortunately, during the last two rain-delayed races two different competitors collected Bell with their loose trucks, landing Bell in 16th position in the point standings.

* The #11 Team is pleased to welcome a veteran of the sport with both Nationwide and Sprint Cup experience to the roster. Todd Brewer will have his debut with the #11 Red Horse Racing team as their new truck chief beginning with the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Lowes Motor Speedway.

Bell on racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway Quote from TJ: "I love racing here at Charlotte; it definitely is one of my favorite tracks. Of all the tracks that we race on, I love the way the truck feels in turns 1 & 2. Unfortunately, I didn't get to race here in 2008, but I am glad to be back racing here "at LMS" for Toyota and Red Horse Racing during this 2009 season. I have had a couple of top-10 finishes here in Charlotte in a previous truck race and an ARCA car, so I hope to continue that streak this weekend".

Veteran Crew Chief Rick Gay on racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway and new truck chief Todd Brewer Quote from Rick: "We are taking chassis 110 to Lowe's this week. This truck has a new body for 2009. We are still working on giving TJ what he needs to win races. I have run well at Lowes in the past. I finished second in 2005 with Terry Cook and fifth in 2007 with Ted Musgrave. I am looking forward to starting the busy part of the race schedule. I have Todd Brewer starting with our #11 crew this week and I have no doubt that his experience as a Nationwide Series crew chief and Sprint Cup Series car chief will be an asset to our team. I'm looking forward to working with him to gain some ground in the point's battle."

Equipment Information The No. 11 Red Horse Racing team will compete with chassis # 110 in the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Lowe's Motor Speedway. This will mark the first race that Bell will compete with this chassis.
