MALSAM AT KENTUCKY: Malsam has competed in two ARCA RE/MAX Series races at Kentucky Speedway. The 20-year-old raced in both events last year ('08), starting sixth and finished 11th in the first outing, followed by a 19th-place finish in the second race.

ONE YEAR DOWN, MANY MORE AHEAD: This weekend's race at Kentucky Speedway marks the one-year anniversary of Randy Moss becoming an owner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The NFL Wide Receiver merged with co-owner David Dollar last July, as Morgan-Dollar Motorsports became Randy Moss Motorsports. Moss won his first race as an owner in April, as Skinner drove the No. 5 Toyota Tundra to Victory Lane at Kansas Speedway.

CHASSIS CHOICE: This weekend, crew chief Doug Wolcott and the No. 81 One Eighty team will unload Randy Moss Motorsports chassis No. 104. Saturday's race will be the first time that Malsam has raced this particular Toyota Tundra.

MOST POPULAR DRIVER: NASCAR has created an online ballot for the fans to vote for their favorite driver for the Most Popular Driver Award. Fans are allowed to vote once a day, until the polls close on October 31, 2009. The results of the balloting will be announced at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series banquet at the end of the season. Let your voice be heard and vote for your favorite driver!

FOUR RACES IN ONE WEEK: Malsam will compete in four races this week -- three 360 Sprint Car races in Oregon, topped off by his Truck Series race on Saturday evening. Malsam competes for Rudeen Racing in the Sprint Car Series, driving the No. 26 car.

MALSAM (On racing at Kentucky Speedway): "I'm really looking forward to going back to Kentucky this weekend. It's nice going to track that I have had some laps on before, because that usually doesn't happen a lot. My One Eighty, Randy Moss Motorsports team always gives me good Toyotas to drive and this race will be no different. We have had success at mile-and-a-half tracks this season, so I definitely think that we can get our first top-five of the season this Saturday night."
