Burney on racing at The Milwaukee Mile this weekend:

"I'm really looking forward to racing this weekend at The Milwaukee Mile in one of these great Braun Racing Toyotas. I have a ton confidence in Trent and this No. 32 team. They have been putting together great cars all year and I know our set-up style will favor a track like Milwaukee. I can't wait to get the Dollar General Camry out on the track. We are riding the momentum of our first top-10 finish together and I think we will have a great race this weekend. One of the coolest things is that Milwaukee is one of the oldest tracks that we race at. There is a ton of history and it would be such an honor to win here."

Burney on track variety in the Nationwide Series:

"The NASCAR Nationwide Series has great track variety. We race on speedways, superspeedways, short tracks and road courses. It is a lot of fun to mix it up. This weekend we will be running on a flat track which requires a different style of driving. Braking and positioning comes into play when passing on a track like Milwaukee versus the momentum and aerodynamics that affect racing on a banked track."

Equipment Information

The No. 32 Dollar General team will compete with chassis #BR021 in this weekend's NorthernTool.com 250. Chassis #21 was last seen on track at Richmond International Raceway (May, 2009) where Lamar started 24th and finished 28th. #21 was also on track at Phoenix International Raceway (April, 2009) where Lamar started 16th and finished 13th.
