CHASSIS NO. 318 -- The No. 88 team will run Chassis No. 318 at Atlanta Vegas Motor Speedway. Last year Kyle Busch drove this car to a fifth-place finish at Richmond International Speedway.

BRAD KESELOWSKI (on the sensation of speed at Atlanta) -- "Flying around Atlanta is a lot like flying in a F/A-18 Hornet for the Navy. [Keselowski flew with the Navy's Blue Angels last Tuesday in El Centro Calif.] It's the same feeling. You go into Turn 1 so fast and Turn 3 as well. Then you just drop. It feels like you drop a mile, but it's only a few feet. It throws you in the seat. There's a high sensation of speed that throws your body down and to the right really hard. That's what we feel in the seat. It's actually a great race track. I love it to death. It's multi-grooved. You can pass and run anywhere on the track."
