This Week's Tundra... Tayler Malsam and Randy Moss Motorsports will compete with chassis MDM-109 at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night. MDM-109 is a brand new chassis that was built especially for Phoenix International Raceway and events at other short-tracks throughout the 2011 season. The opening practice session on Friday morning will mark the first time MDM-109 has been on the track.
Quick in Qualifying... As the NCWTS works off the 2010 point standings to guarantee competitors a place in the opening four events of the 2011 season, Tayler Malsam must be fast in qualifying to earn a place to race on Friday night. The 22-year-old from Seattle, Wash., does not have points to fall back on, and must therefore qualify into the race on time.
Tayler Malsam on racing at Phoenix International Raceway
"I'm excited to be back racing on the West Coast. I'm really lucky to have such great sponsors behind me and I'm thankful for all of their support. The No. 25 truck is going to have Iron Horse Jeans back on the hood, and I'm looking forward to hanging out with all of their guests at the racetrack. The truck I had last weekend was one of the best trucks that I've ever taken to the race track, and we're taking a brand new piece to the track this weekend. I'm excited to see how it handles and how we do throughout practices and qualifying on Friday."
Crew Chief Dan Stillman on competing at Phoenix International Raceway
"Phoenix is a great little racetrack and one that we always look forward to racing at. Our team has a lot of great supporters behind it, and we're excited to have Iron Horse Jeans back with us this weekend. We need to qualify into the race, so there's a little more added pressure, but we have a great group of guys that are more than up to the challenge and a brand-new truck that we're really excited about taking to the track."
