Brian Rose Turns Focus To Kansas Speedway

KANSAS CITY, Kansas (April 28, 2010) - - After missing the field at Nashville Superspeedway earlier this month, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Brian Rose has utilized the down-time since to better prepare for his return to the series since 2003.

Rose, driver of the No. 6 Kids Embrace Chevrolet Silverado has teamed up with veteran NCWTS crew chief Dave Fuge, Sr. to take the reins atop of the pit box for Sunday's O'Reilly Auto Parts 250. Fuge is a two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship crew chief and owner with Xpress Motorsports.

"I'm looking forward to working with Dave this weekend," said Rose. "He has a lot of respect in the garage area for his knowledge and wisdom. He has been an asset to the Rick Ware Racing team by helping prepare this truck for this weekend at Kansas. I'm looking forward to see what we can do when we get on the track."

The Bowling Green, Kentucky native will return to 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway for the third time in his career and the first time since 2002. He finished 19th in his Kansas debut in 2001 driving for Ware and qualified a solid 16th place qualifying run in 2003 driving for the late Bobby Hamilton, Sr.

"Kansas Speedway is a neat place," Rose added. "It's an incredibly fast mile-and-a-half track and while speed is important there -- handling could even be more critical. We'll keep adjusting our truck all weekend and hope when push comes to shove we'll be in position for a top-15 run."

Furthermore, Rose is thrilled about representing Kids Embrace, the manufacturer of children and toddler automobile safety seats on the hood of his bowtie automobile this weekend.

"It's an honor to represent Kids Embrace this weekend," Rose humbling said. "I have young children so this hits close to home for me and it's my goal to help bring further awareness to the new supporters of Kids Embrace while hopefully bringing them some attention this weekend at Kansas."
