* The Sam's Town 300 marks Vickers third NASCAR Nationwide Series start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In his two previous starts in 2002 and 2003, Vickers earned top-20 finishes in both events. He also completed 99.8% of all the laps possible.
* Vickers hopes Lady Luck will be on his side this weekend in Sin City. In one previous start for Braun Racing this season Vickers captured a top-five finish to kick-off the season. In the Camping World 300 at Daytona International Speedway, Vickers started 11th and raced his way to a fourth place finish.

Vickers on Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
"I'm looking forward to this race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We came out here and tested last month and we feel like the test was a huge success. We really learned a lot and that will really help us unload well this weekend. This team works really hard and brings me a fast car for each race and each race we've had a car that can contend for the win. If we have good pit stops and make the right adjustments during the race, I'm confident the Dollar General Camry will be racing for the win in the closing laps of the Sam's Town 300."
The No. 32 Dollar General Racing team will compete with chassis 37 in this weekend's Sam's Town 300. This is the same chassis Dave Blaney raced at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November where he started third and finished 26th due to an accident.
