DAVE BLANEY OPTOMISTIC ABOUT HIS FIRST TRIP SOUTH OF THE BORDER:

* Although this is the third Mexico City race for the Busch Series, it will be Dave Blaney's first time participating in the Telcel-Motorola 200. Blaney has never even seen the 2.518-mile road course, but he's been doing his homework. Blaney has been watching tapes of the past two Mexico races to get a better feel for the track.

* Kicking off the season with a second place finish in Daytona and capturing the pole in California, Blaney and the Fan1st.com team plan to keep the momentum going in Mexico. Although he has never raced at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, he is no stranger to road course racing. He has logged a combined 21 starts at Watkins Glen International and Pocono Raceway.

* Blaney and the No.10 Braun Racing team welcome sponsor FAN1ST.com aboard for the Telcel-Motorola Mexico 200 in Mexico City, Mexico. Fan1st.com is the first website designed strictly for the racing fan. Motorsports fans have never before had the kind of "all access" pass that Fan1st.com provides. The website is constructed to give fans a chance to become a part of a race team on every level from the decals on the race cars to making important team decisions. The cost to become a member is minimal and the benefits are tremendous including having the fan's name on Dave Blaney's No. 10 NASCAR Busch Series car, a personal sponsor card, invites to team functions and input in team decisions-not to mention participation in the best fantasy racing league in existence with the "Owner-For-a-Day" grand prize.

BLANEY ON RACING AT AUTODROMO HERMANOS RODRIGUEZ:

"I've never been to Mexico City and I never driven on this track so I'm not really sure what to expect. I've watched tapes of the race and I've talked with my teammate Jason Leffler to learn more about the track before I get there. I enjoy road course racing, it takes a lot of patience and you have to drive differently than you do on a superspeedway or a mile and a half track. Road course racing is its own beast, and we won't really know what to expect until we get there!"
