-Todd Kluever finished the 2006 Busch Series season with four top-10 finishes and one pole.

-Kluever will be racing chassis RK-368 at Daytona. This is the same car Danny O'Quinn raced at Daytona in July.

-Kluever ranked in the top 10 in practice times during the three-day test in Daytona in January.

-Kluever finished seventh in last year's season opener at Daytona.

-Kluever is scheduled to run 19 Busch Series races this season. He will compete in the No. 16 3M for 16 races, and the No. 26 for three races with sponsorship from Dish Network and World Financial Group.

Kluever on racing at Daytona:

"I am excited to get back on track at Daytona. We had a pretty good test down there in January with this car. Eddie (Pardue) and the guys have worked really hard on this car and I think it's going to be pretty decent. My expectations are very high for this season so I'm ready to get started. This is a really good team and they won a race last year so I'm excited to be with them. I'd love to be running the full season, but at least I get to compete in one of the biggest races of the year at Daytona."

Eddie Pardue on racing at Daytona:

"This is a good car that tested well at Daytona last month. I think we can have a really good run with Todd. Daytona is tough because it's all about being in the right place at the right time, and definitely trying not to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. We did a lot of single-car runs and drafting with this car at the test so we all feel pretty confident it will be a good piece."
