* Coming off the momentum of his first Sprint Cup Series win of the 2008 season last weekend in Atlanta, Kyle Busch is geared up for some short track racing. So far this season Busch is off to a great start. In the first full month of racing, Busch captured two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series wins and a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win but a NASCAR Nationwide Series win still eludes him. Busch is hoping this weekend will finally capture that Nationwide Series win behind the wheel of the No.32 Hass Avocados from Mexico Camry for Braun Racing.

* There is no doubt Kyle Busch knows his way around Bristol Motor Speedway. In seven Nationwide Series starts on the "World's Fastest Half-Mile, he has finished in the top-10 six times including five top-five finishes. He broke into Victory Lane at Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS) in Nationwide Series competition in March of 2006 and just one year later, won the first ever Car of Tomorrow race in the Sprint Cup Series at BMS.

Hass Avocados from Mexico returns in 2008 for its third year of sponsorship at Braun Racing. The No.32 Hass car captured its first win at Lowe's Motor Speedway in October 2006. Looking for another trip to Victory Lane, Hass Avocados from Mexico welcomes Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin to pilot the No.32 in nine races this season.

Busch on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway

"Bristol Motor Speedway is one of my favorite tracks. It seems like Bristol is one of those tracks you either love or hate and fortunately for me, I've had some success here, so I'm one of the drivers that love it. We won the first COT race here last year and won a Nationwide Series race the year before that. The repaving they did last year really made for more side by side racing and made it a little easier to get by the lap cars. With any short track you struggle with the lap traffic getting in the way but now that there is any additional racing groove, it's easier to get by. I've had some good runs in the Nationwide Series races so far this year and we've been close to victory but haven't quite got there yet. I'm hoping this weekend we can put the Hass Avocados from Mexico Camry in Victory Lane and get this monkey off our back!"

Equipment Information

The No. 32 Hass Avocados from Mexico Racing team will compete with chassis 24 in this weekend's Sharpie Mini 300. This is the same chassis Kyle Busch raced at California Speedway in February. He started 14th and finished second.
