Ward Burton will be making his first ever NASCAR Busch Series start at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Burton will be the sixth different driver to pilot the #27 Brewco Motorsports entry at LVMS. Other drivers were David Green ('06, '05; Johnny Sauter '04; Chase Montgomery '03; Jamie McMurray '02, '01; and Casey Atwood '00)

The Sam's Town 300 will be contested on the newly-revamped Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Changes to the 1.5-mile track since last year include an increase in the banking in the turns from 12 to 20 degrees and adding six degrees of banking on the backstretch - three to nine.

Jorge Goeters piloted the #27 Scotiabank/Star Motorsports/Xtremme Gel/Kleenex® Ford in the Mexico 200 last Sunday in Mexico City. Goeters qualified 4th and finished 7th - the first top ten for the #27 Brewco Motorsports team since July, 2006 at Gateway International Raceway (David Green - 7th). Goeters led three laps during the race - the first laps led by the #27 this season.

Brewco Motorsports will debut a custom paint scheme for the Sam's Town 300. The #27 Scott® Extra Soft Ford Fusion will race at Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Bristol. Smith's will be the retail customer displayed on the quarter panels for Las Vegas.
