Boris Said Hellmann's/Ultimate Chargers Dodge Charger Fast Facts Martinsville Speedway

BORIS SAID QUOTES:

"I'm looking forward to making my first Busch Series start at Martinsville Speedway. (Team Director) Trip (Bruce) is great to work with and I'm confident that he and the Ultimate Chargers crew will get the No. 9 Dodge Charger running just right. Again, I appreciate Ray (Evernham) giving me the opportunity to get more seat time on the ovals. I want bring home a solid finish for him, Hellmann's, and all the guys on the team."

TRIP BRUCE QUOTES:

"We're glad to have Boris back in the car this weekend. We had a really good run with him the last time he was in the car in Kentucky. We finished 14th and were capable of a top-10 finish. He also drove well for us at Mexico, starting on the pole and finishing second. I think his excellent foot-skills from road course racing will translate into a good finish since braking is so important there, just like on the road courses."

QUICK FACTS

This will be Said's ninth career NASCAR Busch Series start, and first career Busch Series start at Martinsville.

This will be Said's fourth race in the Ultimate Chargers Dodge this season. His best finish was second in Mexico City where he also won the pole for the TelCel Motorola 200 presented by Banamex.
