Ickler makes First Start at Monster Mile for Ballew

Dover, DE -- (May 25, 2009) -Brian Ickler will take to the track for his second start at Dover International Speedway but first start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Friday, May 29, 2009. Ickler will pilot the No. 15 Samsung Instinct Billy Ballew Motorsports Toyota Tundra in the AAA Insurance 200 race on the one-mile track.

Ickler sat on the pole in the NASCAR Camping World East Series race at what has been named the "Monster Mile" at Dover International Speedway in 2008. Ickler led nine laps but was involved in an incident on lap 26 putting the car out of the event early.

"I'm excited about going to a track I've had some laps on," Ickler said. "Despite having gotten involved in an accident I felt I had a pretty good feel for the one-mile concrete track. Our sponsor, Samsung Instinct is holding a contest with several winners receiving tickets to the Camping World Truck Series event at Dover with two lucky winners as part of our pit crew for the race. We'll just follow our instincts in Dover to see if we can get a good finish for Samsung and the fans."

Billy Ballew Motorsports has 10 previous starts at Dover International Speedway with one win posted by Kyle Busch in 2005.

The AAA Insurance 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is slated to begin at 5:00pm ET Friday, May 29, 2009.
