CHARLOTTE CHASSIS SELECTION - Crew chief Chad Norris has selected RK-463 for this weekend's Dollar General 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This car served as the back up for Braun in Michigan but has yet to see competitive laps.
Braun, on heading to Charlotte:
"Charlotte is one of my favorite tracks that we go to in the Nationwide Series and so I'm really thrilled to be able to race there this weekend, especially in the new Mustang. The last Mustang race went really well for us in Michigan and I think we have the opportunity for the same kind of results here at home in Charlotte. The new cars race a lot like the Trucks did, and we had a really good run here in that series last year. I am continuing to work on our communication as a team so Chad [Norris] has the best information I can give him during the race. We made some really good progress last weekend in Kansas and I'm hopeful for more of the same this weekend."
Crew chief Chad Norris, on racing with Braun at Charlotte:
"We are really looking forward to running at Charlotte this weekend with Colin [Braun]. He has done a pretty good job there in the past in the Truck Series. I believe the test on Wednesday is going to be a great opportunity for us to get him what he needs to be successful on Friday night. He really likes the Mustang as it drives similar to the trucks he drove last season, so we all are very excited for this weekend and expect big things."
