TOYOTA TALK:
Kvapil Back in Tundra at Nashville

NEWS, NOTES & NUMBERS: In 13 NCWTS races in 2009, Toyota Tundra drivers have combined for six wins (Todd Bodine -- Daytona and Texas; Busch -- California and Atlanta; Mike Skinner -- Kansas; Brian Scott -- Dover), 36 top-fives and 70 top-10 finishes ... Travis Kvapil, who won the first race for Toyota in the upper levels of NASCAR competition in the NCWTS race at Michigan in 2004, will be behind the wheel of the Billy Ballew Motorsports No. 51 Tundra Saturday at Nashville.

TRAVIS KVAPIL, No. 51 Miccosukee Resort Toyota Tundra, Billy Ballew Motorsports

Are you looking forward to racing at Nashville this weekend? "I'm excited to be back in a Camping World Truck. I've had a lot of success in the Series and at Nashville where I won the last time I raced there in a truck (2007). I'm just glad to be back in the seat. Bristol, in March, was the last time I've driven this year and I'm looking forward to getting back to racing. Nashville is a unique, big 1.33-mile track with tight corners. It's emphasized from the concrete surface of the track, making it hard to grip. You need to have a good handling truck to do well at Nashville. Billy Ballew's trucks are capable of winning every week and I'd like to leave Nashville this week with a second guitar."

BRIAN SCOTT, No. 16 Albertson's Toyota Tundra, Xpress Motorsports

Are you looking forward to racing at Nashville this weekend? "I would love to win one of those Gibsons. The Gibson Guitar is one of the most sought after trophies in motorsports. 'Miles the Monster' from Dover is right there as is the Elvis trophy from Memphis. Ask any driver and they will tell you how much they want that guitar from Nashville Superspeedway. It would be great to win the guitar to go with my Monster trophy -- maybe the Monster can play the guitar. It would be a really good match. I would cherish it forever if I could be fortunate enough to win one."
