CARMICHAEL AT KENTUCKY: Ricky Carmichael scored his highest finish of 2009 at Kentucky Speedway by qualifying in the third position and finishing in seventh.

CARMICHAEL ON COMPETING AT KENTUCKY: "I can't wait to get to Kentucky. I got my highest finish of the year last year there and was just a couple hundredths off of qualifying on the pole, so it's nice to go back to a track where I know I've had some success and I feel comfortable. The truck was great last weekend at Chicago until we had our engine problem, so I think it will be strong again this weekend."

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Crew chief Doug Randolph has chosen chassis No.13 for Carmichael to pilot at Kentucky Speedway. This chassis was brand new at Chicagoland Speedway and will be making its second appearance on-track.

TEE OFF FOR A GREAT CAUSE: Ricky will be hosting his second annual charity golf tournament on Monday, September 13th in Tallahassee, Fla., to support ECHO, a local non-profit organization that supports homeless families in the Tallahassee-area with food, clothing, job training and even housing assistance. Last year, Carmichael's tournament raised enough money to be the organization's largest contributor, and he hopes to do the same again in 2010.
