TWO GREAT CLIPS CAMRYS SET TO TAKE THE GREEN FLAG AT PHOENIX INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 8, 2008) -- You may think you're seeing double this weekend when two Great Clips Camrys take to the track for Friday night's Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway. In addition to the black No. 38 Great Clips Camry driven by Jason Leffler each weekend, Braun Racing's No.32 entry, to be driven by James Buescher in his series debut, will feature a reverse Great Clips paint scheme.

Friday night's race will mark Buescher's Nationwide Series debut. Just recently turning 18, Buescher focused his efforts in 2007 on competing in both the Hooters Pro Cup Series and the ARCA/Remax Series and quickly made a name for himself. In seven ARCA/Remax starts, Buescher finished in the top-10 six times and became the youngest winner in series history when he won his first ever ARCA event at Lakeland Speedway. Buescher started in the top-10 five times, including starting on the outside pole twice.

"I'm really excited to make my debut in the Nationwide Series in the Great Clips Camry," said Buescher. "It's an honor for me to being driving for Braun Racing. This No.32 car is competitive each and every week and I'm looking forward to keeping it that way. I'm sure there will be a bit of a learning curve since I've never raced at Phoenix International Raceway or in a Nationwide Series car but this is a great team and I'm sure they will help me get comfortable as quickly as possible. Our goal is to bring home a solid finish for everyone at Great Clips."

Braun Racing owner, Todd Braun, along with Doug Stringer, look forward to seeing both Toyota Camrys adorned with the Great Clips logo this weekend.

"We have enjoyed a very positive relationship with Great Clips over the last three seasons," said Braun. "Their corporate staff as well as all of their franchisees and stylists across the country have been very strong supporters of our race team and we wanted to show our appreciation to them by running two Great Clips cars this weekend in Phoenix. It is a pleasure to work with them and an honor to represent Great Clips every weekend both on and off the track. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them well into the future."

Stringer adds, "We dedicate this weekend to Terri Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Great Clips. Terri has been one of our strongest supporters and we appreciate all of her efforts over the years. Everyone at Braun Racing would like to wish her a speedy recovery and return to the race track to cheer the No. 38 Great Clips Toyota to victory."
