* Return to Hallowed Ground: Butch Miller and the Dana racing team will be looking to build on their 10th place finish at Pike Peak International Raceway this week. Miller looks forward to racing in the state of Colorado every year because it was the sight of his best day in his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series career. Miller went to victory at the now inactive Colorado National Speedway in 1995 for his first and only victory to date. But that may all change this week as he is pumped up about the Dana team and the change of winning again. "I feel like this Dana team is just waiting to bust out and win," said Miller. "Every week we get better as a team. My communication with the guys improves, and they in turn can put a truck under me that keeps running better and better. So I have to believe our day is just around the corner." * New Paint: Butch Miller and the Dana Racing team will be sporting a different look at Pikes Peak International Raceway this week. The #18 Dana truck will have the reversed white and blue paint scheme that fans have seen this year on the #4 Bobby Hamilton/Dana truck.

* Making Laps: Butch Miller is one of only two drivers to have completed every lap run in the state of Colorado (901 laps). The other driver to complete every lap is Ron Hornaday. Also Miller's only victory in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series came at Colorado National Speedway in 1995. * Tight Points Race: Butch Miller and the Bobby Hamilton/Dana racing team moved up one position to 17th in the points after their 10th place finish at Memphis. This does not sound impressive until you see that there are only 85 points separating Miller and the 10th place truck in the point standing. "The points are so close that if you have anything happen to you on the track you can fall a bunch of positions in the standings," said Miller. Everything in this series is close. From the racing to the point standings, but that's why the fans come to see us."
