* On the verge... Lofton's fifth place finish in Bristol allowed him to make up substantial ground in the point standings. He remains in the 12th spot entering this week's race at Chicagoland, but he isn't far from the elusive top-10. Courtesy of his top-five last week in Bristol, Lofton is now only 21 points shy of the 11th position, and a mere 41 out of 10th.

Justin Lofton on racing at Chicagoland Speedway "I'm excited about heading back to Chicagoland this weekend. I have been there a few times and I know the track well. Mark and I visited victory lane there last August in ARCA, and I'm anxious to see what we can put together this weekend. The guys have been working really hard, and it's been a lot of fun the last month. We've had some really strong runs and we have a lot of momentum on our side."

Crew Chief Mark Rette on Chicagoland Speedway "We've had success at Chicagoland in the past. I've been to victory lane a few times; once in the Nationwide Series with Casey Mears, and last year with Justin - that was a lot of fun in the ARCA car. I'm looking forward to returning this week. We're taking the same truck we had earlier this year at Michigan."

Equipment Information Lofton will race chassis RHR65 this week at Chicago. It is the same truck that the No. 7 team ran in June at Michigan, finishing 18th.
