Hass Avocados from Mexico on board for the Lipton Tea 250

* Just days before Cinco de Mayo, one of Hass Avocados from Mexico's biggest days of the year, the Hass Car will once again take to the track at Richmond International Raceway.

* Leading up to the Lipton Tea 250, Kyle Busch will take on his brother Kurt Busch in a "pit stop guacamole challenge" for ESPN. The brothers will take each other on to see who can turn the recipe using Hass Avocados from Mexico into guacamole the quickest. Winner takes all!

* Smooth and creamy Hass Avocados from Mexico are an extremely versatile ingredient used in countless delicious, fast and easy-to-make dishes in cuisines from all over the world. The most familiar of these of course is Guacamole, the fun fiesta fare which makes any gathering into a party. An authentic Hass Avocado from Mexico is unmistakable with its green-black pebbly skin, small to medium size, oval shape and relatively heavy weight.

Busch on Racing at Richmond Superspeedway "Richmond is one of my favorite tracks and probably one of the best tracks to race on. I've had some success there so we're looking forward to continuing that into this weekend. These guys on the Braun team haven't got a win yet this year and I want to help them make that happen. We tested together at Richmond in March and feel really good about how it went and what we learned there. I'm just looking forward to hitting the track on Friday and seeing what we've got."

The No. 32 Hass Avocados from Mexico team will compete with chassis 21 in Friday night's Lipton Tea 250. This is the same chassis Brian Vickers ran at Phoenix in 2007 where he started 21st and finished 27th due to an accident.
