The Equipment... The Phillips 66 team will compete with "Bag O Donutz" this weekend in Bristol. "Bag O Donutz" is the oldest chassis in the No. 66 team's stable and is the same car used during the March race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

At Bristol In March... Despite qualifying 27th, Casey Mears marched through the field and was running in 10th by lap 135 before contact with another car in turns one and two sent Mears spinning. Mears finished the race in 23rd.

Better Qualifying Efforts... During the first 10 races of the season, the Phillips 66 team's average starting position was 23rd. The last 10 races have yielded a much better result as their average starting position has increased from 23rd to 13th, including three top-10 starts.

Casey Mears' Thoughts On Returning to Bristol... "I can't wait to get back to Bristol for the second time. Just look at our results from our second trip to Nashville earlier in the season. It's just a matter of becoming familiar with each track. I'm looking for good things to unfold when we start hitting tracks like Charlotte, Dover and Rockingham again."
