Busch and Ballew Look for Treats, No Tricks at Hallow-Dega; Busch in for Final Four with Ballew Seeking Owner's Championship

Talladega, Alabama - Kyle "Rowdy" Busch piloting the No. 51 Miccosukee Resort Billy Ballew Motorsports Toyota Tundra looks for only treats this Halloween, no tricks in the running of the Mountain Dew 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway Saturday, October 31, 2009.

Kyle Rowdy Busch will return to Billy Ballew Motorsports to pilot the No. 51 Miccosukee Resort Toyota Tundra in the final four 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races.

Busch has piloted the No. 51 Tundra in 11 races in 2009, posting five wins, eight top-five and 10 top-10 finishes for the independent team owner. His last victory came at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where Busch last piloted the race truck.

Busch has two previous NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the 2.66-mile superspeedway for Billy Ballew Motorsports with a best finish of third-place position posted in 2008. He has six previous Nationwide Series starts and nine NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts including one win.

Billy Ballew Motorsports making their 300th-Series start this weekend has five previous starts at Talladega Superspeedway with Busch posting a best finish of third-place in 2008.

While the 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season winds down to a close, Billy Ballew sits just 178-points out of the Owners Championship Points lead and hopes that with Busch in the truck for the final four the team will be able to make up the difference. Ballew had his best NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Owners Points finish of third-place position in 2008.

"We're pretty close in points going into these final four races," Billy Ballew said. "With Kyle (Busch) in the truck I'm pretty sure we'll pull off some good finishes and hopefully get past the 33 to take the 2009 Owners Points Championship. It would mean the world to me to be able to get that spot this year. Hopefully, we'll have some great runs and take home the trophy in November."

Dallas Austin, the songwriter, record producer and musician will be an honorary pit crew member on the No. 51 Billy Ballew Motorsports team. Some of his most notable clients include Michael Jackson, TLC, Boyz II Men, Pink, Monica, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Stacie Orrico, Another Bad Creation, Fishbone and Kim from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Dallas is also "Rowdy" with RowdyTV.com and The Rowdy Collection and is based in Ballew's hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
