SHERMAN'S HISTORY AT PHOENIX - Driving the No. 10 Consort for Men Ford, Brent Sherman will make his second appearance at Phoenix International Raceway in Saturday's NASCAR Busch Series Arizona 200 presented by Walk the Line. Sherman started 15th in the spring race at the one-mile track and finished 24th.

ppc RACING AT PHOENIX - In four NASCAR Busch Series races at Phoenix International Raceway, ppc Racing's No. 10 team has collected two top-five and three top-10 finishes.

CHASSIS INFORMATION - The No. 10 Consort for Men Racing team is running chassis No. ppc 33 in Saturday's Phoenix 200. Sherman has previously competed in the chassis at Gateway International Raceway. The team will have chassis No. 1007 on the hauler as a backup for the event. Sherman has yet to compete in it.

IT'S GOING TO BE A BOY! - Sherman and his wife Kathleen found out last week that they are expecting a baby boy. The couple's first child is due in March.

SHERMAN ON RACING AT PHOENIX - "I had a good qualifying run in April, but an average finish. Phoenix is a tricky track. One corner of the track is tight and the other is more sweeping. It's difficult to find a setup that works at both ends. I hope we can have a solid qualifying run in the Consort Ford and come home with a good finish."

CREW CHIEF TIM SHUTT ON TRAVELING TO PHOENIX - "Going to Phoenix will be a nice change of pace for the team since we've been racing at mainly mile-and-a-half tracks for the past month or so."

SHUTT ON MAKING THE SHOW AT PHOENIX - "Brent had a good qualifying run there in the spring and there are only 48 entries this week, so it takes a bit of the pressure off as far as qualifying for the race. We're not locked into the field each week, so we have to spend a good deal of time working on qualifying setups to make sure we'll get a spot in the field. Since there aren't as many cars and Brent has a bit of history at the track, it'll allow us to put more focus on race setups instead of concentrating on qualifying."
