DOUBLE DUTY: When Ricky Carmichael returns to the site of his first race with Turner Motorsports, he will be doing "double duty" for the second weekend in a row by running both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Phoenix International Raceway.

CARMICHAEL ON TRUCKS: Carmichael's last race came at Texas Motor Speedway, where he began the race in the 11th-position and secured another top-10 by finishing in 10th. So far this season, Carmichael has scored three top-five and nine top-10 finishes.

CARMICHAEL ON COMPETING AT PHOENIX: "Going back to Phoenix is kind of special for me. That's where my wife is from, so I'll get to spend some time with family, and it's the first place I raced for Turner Motorsports. Phoenix is kind of like Loudon. Hopefully we can keep riding this wave of good momentum and I can give that truck the finish it deserved in New Hampshire earlier this year."

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Crew chief Doug Randolph has chosen chassis No.18 for Carmichael to pilot at Phoenix. This truck was previously on-track at New Hampshire where he finished in the 29th-position after contact with the wall early in the race.
