* Coming off a sixth place finish in Milwaukee, the No. 10 Hass Avocados from Mexico team hopes to keep that momentum going in Loudon. Dave Blaney has a combined 18 races at New Hampshire International Speedway in Busch Series and Nextel Cup competition. That extensive experience should help the team pick up another solid finish and gain ground in the point standings. Blaney is currently fourth in Busch Series point standings, just seven points behind third place David Ragan and 77 points behind second place David Reutimann.

* Blaney has logged four starts at New Hampshire International Speedway (NHIS). In those four starts, he's recorded one top-10 start and two top-15 finishes. In his last start, driving the No.32 for Braun Racing, Blaney started 10th and finished 15th. He has also competed in 14 Nextel Cup events at NHIS.

BLANEY ON RACING AT NEW HAMPSHIRE INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY:

"Loudon is a lot like Milwaukee. It's a flat track with long straight-aways so you need to be able to turn really well there. I'm sure we'll spend a lot of time working on that in practice. If we don't get it right then, it will make for a very long race. We dropped a few positions in the points after Milwaukee so we really need to focus on getting those spots back. Even though the championship is probably out of reach, we are still points racing to pick up anything we can. It would still mean a lot to this team to finish second at the end of the year."
