No. 9 AISIN/AISIN AW Toyota Tundra

Career at Kentucky:

This will be Shige Hattori's first start at the Kentucky Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series but he has made one previous start at the track in the Indy Racing League.

Hattori Comments on Kentucky Speedway:

"I'm looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 9 Toyota Tundra at the Kentucky Speedway this weekend. I've raced there in the IRL and am pretty comfortable with the race track. My crew chief and the mechanics put together a top-notch truck for this weekend. I still need more time in the seat and each of these races helps with that. Kentucky Speedway is known for its great side-by-side racing. It should be an exciting race for the fans."

Hattori Comments on Teammate Todd Bodine's Win:

"I'm happy for my new teammate, Todd Bodine and his win in Kansas last week. Those Tundra engines put out a lot of horsepower. I'm looking forward to working with Todd. I'll be able to learn so much from him. His years of experience showed last week when he won. I plan on following his line this weekend in practice and maybe pick up a few things."
