BRIAN VICKERS AND ABF RACING TEAM UP FOR THE 2008 SEASON
MOORESVILLE, N.C.(February 6, 2008) -- Braun Racing is pleased to announce the partnership of Brian Vickers and long time team sponsor, ABF Freight System, for the 2008 Nationwide Series season.
In a growing partnership with Braun Racing, ABF has increased their sponsorship from five races in 2007 to up to nine races in 2008. This will mark ABF's third year in the sport with a combined ten races prior to the 2008 season. Last season, ABF Racing helped make history when driver, Dave Blaney, captured Toyota Camry's first Busch pole at California Speedway.
Vickers is currently slated to drive the ABF Camry in nine Nationwide Series races this season beginning with the 2008 season opener at Daytona. Vickers will pilot the No. 32 entry at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway in April, Michigan International Speedway, California Speedway in August, Richmond International Raceway in September and Kansas Speedway. During select 2008 events where Braun Racing's stable expands to three cars, Vickers and ABF will compete as the No.10 entry including at Daytona International Speedway in February, Lowe's Motor Speedway in May, and Bristol Motor Speedway in August. Vickers will once again have the guidance of crew chief Trent Owens leading the team in 2008.
"I'm looking forward to running these races for Braun Racing and Toyota in 2008," said Vickers. "They asked me back this year after some strong runs last season and I'm excited we have another opportunity to get this team some wins. They bring a competitive race car to the track week in and week out and I'm confident we can make the most of this partnership with ABF Racing to get them into Victory Lane!"
