* The Food City 250 will mark Brian Vickers' sixth Nationwide Series start at Bristol Motor Speedway. In five previous starts he has earned one top-10 finish. One of those starts came in a Braun Racing entry in August 2007 where Vickers finished 36th due to an accident.

* Making his ninth start of the season for Braun Racing, Vickers has earned the team five top-10 finishes including a fourth place finish at Daytona in February, a fifth place finish at Lowe's in May, a fourth place finish at Chicagoland in July and a runner-up finish at Michigan last weekend. He is scheduled to run a total of 16 races for the Braun Racing team during the 2008 season.

* Vickers also has eight Sprint Cup Series starts at Bristol Motor Speedway to his credit. He has earned four top-20 finishes and finished 94% of all laps possible.

ABF On Board with Brian Vickers at Bristol

* ABF Freight Co. is in its third year of sponsorship at Braun Racing. A partnership that began in 2006 has been nothing short of successful. Last year, ABF etched their name in the history books when the ABF Camry captured the first Toyota Camry pole in history at California Speedway. This season, the ABF Camry will be piloted by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, Brian Vickers, in nine races.

Vickers on racing at Bristol Motor Speedway "We had such a good run last weekend in Michigan, I really hope we can carry that momentum into Bristol. It's just so hard to win one of these races and I know my team and I are getting really frustrated that we haven't gotten one yet. We're going to work really hard at Bristol this weekend to get there. It might not be my best track, but the guys will have a good car for me and we'll try to take it to Victory Lane!"

Equipment Information The No. 10 ABF Racing team will compete with chassis #25 in the Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway. This is the same chassis Jason Leffler raced at Nashville and Kentucky in June where he finished 26th and 16th respectively.
