NOTES & QUOTES

* Kluever is currently 18th in the Busch Series point standings. * The No. 06 team will be taking chassis #RK-217 to Phoenix. He previously raced this car at California and Las Vegas earlier this season. * Kluever has one prior start at Phoenix in the Craftsman Truck Series last year.

Todd Kluever on Phoenix:

"This 3M team really deserves a good finish at Phoenix this weekend. We easily had a top-10 car, if not a top-five car at Nashville last week and got caught up in a wreck caused by a lapped car after a restart. We qualified well in Nashville and should have had a great finish which would have really helped us in the points. The guys did a great job of patching my car up well enough to get back out there to finish the race and pick up three positions.

"I really anticipate a good weekend in Phoenix. Although the car we are taking did not perform the way we wanted in California or Vegas, we learned how to fix it and make it better. The set-up we used at Texas and Nashville will make a big difference in this car and I think it will be pretty good. The timing of the race will be tough since the sun will be setting and you are nearly blinded in certain parts of the track when the sun hits your eyes. That also means the track will change pretty drastically as it gets dark. It's supposed to be in the low 90's during the day so the track should tighten up as it gets cooler. We just need to stay ahead of the track changes to keep the car free enough for the end of the race."
