ANDRETTI HOPING FOR BEGINNER'S LUCK IN MILWAUKEE
* The AT&T 250 will mark the first time John Andretti has driven a Busch car at The Milwaukee Mile. In addition, Andretti has never raced a stock car at the Milwaukee one-mile oval before; he has only competed in Indy Car races before this weekend's Busch Series event.
* The RVs.com/Camping World team is taking chassis #42 to Milwaukee. It's the same car the team raced in Richmond earlier this year where Andretti finished 19th.
* Andretti is currently second in the Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year point standings, just 13 points behind leader, Burney Lamar.
* Making progress each week with consistent finishes, Andretti sits 15th in the Busch Series driver point standings and the #10 team sits 21st in series owner point standings.
ANDRETTI AT THE MILWAUKEE MILE
Saturday night's running of the AT&T 250 will be Andretti's first ever race at The Milwaukee Mile. New to the Busch Series, Andretti has never raced on the 1-mile oval. Despite his lack of race experience at Milwaukee, Andretti is confident the veteran team's experience and a little beginner's luck will spell success for the #10 RVs.com/Camping World Ford Fusion race team.
JOHN ANDRETTI ON THE AT&T 250 AND THE MILWAUKEE MILE
"I've never driven a Busch car up there. Me, Mike and Mario finished first, second, and third in an Indy car race there, which I think is the only time in history that a family has dominated the podium. I still say I won but they have me in second! I love Milwaukee; it's a neat race track and ppc Racing has excelled at flat tracks so I think we can probably go up there and really work on that. We really haven't been on that kind of race track this year yet. The closest thing is probably Phoenix but Phoenix is still quite a bit different. I'm looking forward to getting up there. It's the third stand alone event in a row and from that standpoint right now is really the time to start making a move. I think we are more than capable of doing that. We have to be able to perform when all the cup guys are there and also when there is a smaller amount of them."
