Patrick Carpentier makes his third consecutive start in the Nationwide Series this weekend the Hellmann's Dodge Charger at Michigan International Speedway. In six starts he owns four top-10 finishes and only two finishes outside the top eight.

"The Nationwide Series has been good to me this year. It has also been a lot of fun. The No. 9 Hellmann's team has been putting together really strong finishes. Looking ahead to Michigan we want to add to that streak."

DRIVER PATRICK CARPENTIER:

"The Nationwide Series has been good to me this year. It has also been a lot of fun. The No. 9 Hellmann's team has been putting together really strong finishes. Looking ahead to Michigan we want to add to that streak.

"This will be my third straight start in the Nationwide Series and I won't be back in the car until Dover so I'm going to do my best to get a good run for the crew and my friends at Hellmann's. The good thing about Michigan is that there are a lot of grooves to move around in. Despite how your car is handling you can find a groove to make it work in. I've raced open wheel and Sprint Cup cars at MIS but this will be the first time I have raced in the Nationwide Series on this track."

Chassis: Carpentier will drive chassis No. B27 at Michigan. It last raced at Charlotte where it finished 16th with Kasey Kahne behind the wheel.
