DAVE BLANEY MARKS 100th START AT NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY:

* Dave Blaney will hit a major milestone in his career this weekend. He will post his 100th Busch Series start in the Pepsi 300 at Nashville Superspeedway. Although he may not know how to play one, Dave Blaney is focused on taking home a custom-designed Gibson Guitar trophy in "Music City." Currently fourth in Busch Series point standings, Blaney and the No. 10 Fan1st.com team are determined to make up some ground on points leader Carl Edwards. Blaney is currently 291 points behind Edwards but plans to close that gap with a strong finish at Nashville Superspeedway. Blaney has been in the top-four in point standings all season.

* Blaney has only two Nashville starts but neither were at the current Nashville Superspeedway Both races took place at the old track, Nashville Speedway. In his first Busch race in 1998, he started 11th and finished 14th. His second start came the following year when he started 6th but finished 31st.

BLANEY ON RACING AT NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY:

"I've never raced at Nashville Superspeedway before but I'm looking forward to it. From what I understand, it's a track with multiple grooves for racing. It's got straight-aways like a speedway or a mile and a half but it's got tight corners like a short track. It's also concrete so it's got a lot of different elements to it. After Bristol, we have a lot of ground to make up in the points and I hope we can do that this weekend. The further back we get the harder it will be to reach our goal and win the Championship!

EQUIPMENT INFORMATION:

The No. 10 Fan1st.com team will compete with chassis #22 in this weekend's Pepsi 300. The car was converted to a Toyota in the off-season and has not been raced so far this year.
