RMM WELCOMES PC*MILER NAVIGATOR: Randy Moss Motorsports welcomes PC*MILER Navigator on board Skinner's No. 5 Toyota Tundra as the primary sponsor for this week's race at Nashville Superspeedway. PC*Miler Navigator made its debut with the team one week ago at O'Reilly Raceway Park as an associate sponsor. PC*MILER Navigator has inked a deal with RMM to sponsor the No. 5 RMM Toyota for multiple races throughout the remainder of the 2009 season.

SKINNER AT NASHVILLE: Skinner has competed in five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races at Nashville Superspeedway. In those five NCWTS races, Skinner has claimed two poles (2005 & 2007) along with three top-10 finishes. The 1995 Truck Series Champion has completed every lap of NCWTS competition at the track.

CHASSIS CHOICE: This weekend, crew chief Eric Phillips and the No. 5 team will unload Randy Moss Motorsports chassis MDM-43. This is the fourth race of the 2009 season for this Toyota Tundra, as Skinner drove it to an eighth-place finish at Dover International Speedway, fifth-place finish at Michigan International Speedway, and most recently a second-place finish at Kentucky Speedway.

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!

PREVIOUS RACE RECAP: During last week's race at O'Reilly Raceway Park, Skinner finished in the second position after starting from the outside of the front row. Early in the race the No. 5 RMM Toyota Tundra was the truck to beat with Skinner extending his lead to over three seconds at one time. The 1995 Series' champion put on a show in the closing laps after engaging in a door-to-door battle with the leader before settling for the second position. With his solid run, Skinner moved back into the second position in the NCWTS point standings where he now sits 174 markers behind the leader.

A NEW LOOK FOR RMM: Randy Moss Motorsports launched its new website this week. The site contains state-of-the-art design that gives fans a chance to take a virtual tour of the RMM shop, a photo gallery updated weekly, all the latest news about what's happening at RMM and so much more. Coming soon will be a live news feed with updates directly from the track. Be sure to check it out at www.randymossmotorsports.com.

SKINNER (On racing at Nashville): "Nashville is one of my favorite tracks that we go to each year. We came out early and have been using our PC*MILER Navigator to find our way around town. I have had some success there with a couple of poles but would like to get into Victory Lane and bring one of those guitars home. We have been knocking on the door for another win the past couple of weeks and our PC*MILER Navigator has been working pretty good so maybe it will help us get back to victory lane."

SKINNER (On new sponsor PC*Miler Navigator): "I am so excited to have PC*Miler Navigator on board as our sponsor this weekend. They were with us last week in Indy and we almost got them a win there. It would be really cool to get them to victory lane in their first week as a primary partner. With the momentum we have from the past two weeks, hopefully we can get them there this weekend."
