NOTES & QUOTES

* Kluever is currently 18th in the Busch Series point standings, and fourth in the Raybestos Rookie points.

* This will be Kluever's second start at Kansas. He has one previous start last year in the Craftsman Truck Series when he finished second.

* Kluever was the Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Race last weekend at Dover for the sixth time this season.

* Kluever will also be attempting his third NEXTEL Cup start this weekend at Kansas in the No. 06 3M Ford Fusion.

Todd Kluever on Kansas:

"I am excited for the race at Kansas this weekend. We had such a strong run at Dover last weekend, and although we deserved better than a 13th-place finish, it sure felt good to run up there with the leaders for so much of the race. I had almost forgotten what the pace car looked like because I was nowhere near it on the restarts for the past several races.

"I love racing at Kansas so I'm looking forward to racing the Busch and Cup cars there. I finished second the first time I raced there last year in the truck so I have fond memories of it. I also really like the car we are taking. It ran well in California and we should have had a top-10 finish with it there, but fuel mileage bit us and we ended up a lap down in 27th. The 3M team has worked hard on this car and it should be even better at Kansas."
