BRAUN TO RACE NO. 16 3M FORD AT MEMPHIS BUSCH RACE

CONCORD, N.C. (October 22, 2007) -Roush Fenway Racing driver Colin Braun will make his first career start in the NASCAR Busch Series at Memphis Motorsports Park this Saturday in the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion. Braun has competed in three ARCA/ReMax Series races this season for Roush Fenway with one top-five and three top-10 finishes. He also made his debut in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series last weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

"I'm looking forward to my first Busch Series race this weekend," Braun said. "I've never raced at Memphis before, but I tested the ARCA car there and spent a day at Caraway with Eddie (Pardue, crew chief) and the guys in the Busch car last week. We tested with the same car I will be racing this weekend, so just having the seat time is important to get the feel of these cars. I think we have a pretty good racecar for this weekend. It's going to be fun driving the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion this weekend."

In addition to his ARCA races, Braun competed in the Grand-Am Series in 2007. In 15 starts, he recorded nine top five's, 12 top-10 finishes and one pole.

The Sam's Town 250 at Memphis Motorsports Park will be this Saturday, October 27 at 2:30 p.m. CDT. The race will air live on ESPN2.
