Tayler Malsam Hoping for Some Magic at the 'Magic Mile' ... Malsam has one career start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in the Camping World Truck Series (CWTS). In 2009 he started 13th and finished 20th after experiencing a broken shock. Malsam hopes his CWTS experience at the track helps him bring home a solid finish this weekend in his first Nationwide Series start at the 'Magic Mile'.

Not So New Face on the Pit Box... After a successful weekend at Road America, Shannon Rursch will again serve as interim crew chief on the No. 10 Iron Horse Toyota at NHMS. The Clinton, Iowa native currently works as car chief on Braun Racing's No. 32 Sprint Cup Series entry.

Heading Home to New England... New Hampshire Motor Speedway is the home track for the No. 10's front tire carrier, Kyle Coolidge. Coolidge, a 2002 graduate of Poland Regional High School, calls Poland, Maine his hometown.

Malsam on Adjusting to the Nationwide Series

"It has definitely been a big adjustment for me over the past few weeks. The Nationwide cars handle so much differently than the trucks, but I am learning a lot every race. I've just been taking everything in, and learning about the handling of the cars and different driving techniques. Everyone at Braun Racing has been great and my teammates have been a really good resource for me. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season, and bringing home some more solid finishes in the No. 10 Iron Horse Toyota."

Malsam on Racing at NHMS

"I am really excited to get up to New Hampshire in a Nationwide car for the first time. It's one of my most challenging tracks, and I am excited to use everything I have learned in the car over the past few weeks to improve upon how I raced there last year in the truck. The No. 10 guys have been working really hard and brining awesome cars to the track every week, and I know this weekend won't be any different. Hopefully we will get out on the track and bring home a top-10 in the Iron Horse Toyota."

Equipment Information

The No. 10 Iron Horse team will hit the track with chassis #BR018. This is the same chassis driven by Casey Mears in Phoenix where he finished 31st, and Kelly Bires in Richmond where he finished 11th.
