WELCOME WESTERMAN -- Westerman Companies, long-time sponsor of Key Motorsports' NASCAR Camping World Truck Series entry, will be making its first ever appearance as primary sponsor of a NASCAR Nationwide Series racecar. Westerman announced a few weeks ago that the company would upgrade its sponsorship support to the NNS after Key decided to cut back his Truck Series schedule to part-time in order to focus on the Nationwide program.

ALMOST PERFECT -- Driver Scott Wimmer has completed 999 of 1,000 laps in his five previous starts at Kentucky Speedway. Although he has not yet collected a trophy at the track, Wimmer has had four straight top-5 finishes in his last four visits to the track.

POINTS UPDATE -- Last weekend's fiery 33rd place finish at Nashville Superspeedway dropped the No. 40 to 32nd in the NNS owner standings, forcing Scott Wimmer to race the Westerman Companies Chevy in on time this Saturday. The Key Motorsports entry is currently only nine points out of a locked-in position.

CHASSIS INFORMATION -- Key Motorsports will be utilizing chassis #007 at this weekend's race at Kentucky Speedway. This will be the first time the #007 will hit the track this season.

ON KENTUCKY SPEEDWAY -- "I'm excited about this weekend...Kentucky's always been a real good track for me. A lot of fans come out to this race and it's good to see the support there. We'll probably be racing in front of 70,000 people on Saturday night, and that's real good for a standalone Nationwide event. Hopefully we'll be able to go out there, qualify well, do all the things right, and get our first top-10."
