DOUBLE DUTY: For the first time in his NACAR career, Ricky Carmichael will be doing "double duty" by running both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Texas Motor Speedway.

CARMICHAEL ON COMPETING AT TEXAS: "I love racing at Texas -- it's one of my favorite tracks on the circuit to race at. I like the speeds and the fact that it's multi-grooved so it's fun to race on. We were running so strong there in June and I really thought I had a chance to win, but we had a hard hit into the wall that ended our night early, so hopefully we'll have some better luck this weekend."

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Crew chief Doug Randolph has chosen chassis No.13 for Carmichael to pilot at Texas. This truck was previously on-track at Chicago, Kentucky and Las Vegas, where he finished 28th, fifth and ninth, respectively.
