No. 52 Oakwood Homes Chevrolet Las Vegas Notes & Quotes

Hansen At Las Vegas: Scott Hansen, driver of the No. 52 Oakwood Homes Chevrolet, will make his second career start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend. Hansen finished fifth at Las Vegas in the NASCAR Southwest tour last year. "I am really looking forward to competing at Las Vegas this year," said Hansen. "I had the opportunity to start this race last year in a NASCAR Craftsman Truck, so I do have some experience in a truck at Las Vegas. Experience behind the wheel is so important in understanding how these trucks handle and I am happy to go to a place where I have competed before in a truck and everything won't be so new to me."

Lucky In Las Vegas: Harrah's Casinos is an associate sponsor on the No. 52 Oakwood Homes Chevrolet. The Oakwood Homes Racing team hopes that having a casino in their camp will bring them luck in their quest for victory lane at Las Vegas.

Equipment: The Oakwood Homes Racing team is taking the same truck to Las Vegas that competed earlier this year at Texas and Michigan.

"We are bringing our speedway truck to Las Vegas," said crew chief Wally Brown. "The Oakwood Homes Racing team has put a new body on the truck since we raced it last. We are trying different things on the front- end to make the truck perform better aerodynamically. Aerodynamics are such an important factor at the fast tracks and I think the new body should help the truck get around the track faster."

1998 Statistics: The Oakwood Homes Racing team started 21st and finished 12th in last year's race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
