KEY MOTORSPORTS HUNGERS FOR WIN IN BUBBA BURGER 250 AT HOME TRACK

Driver Mike Bliss is happily welcomed back to the seat of the #40 Westerman Companies Chevrolet for Key Motorsports at Richmond International Raceway this weekend. Predictions of clear weather and the driver's history at the track foretell another great finish to enrich Westerman's participation.

"The team is also pumped up over the addition of new uniforms and a new paint scheme beginning this weekend," team owner Curtis Key commented. "We've got a lot to take satisfaction in with our steady improvements this season."

Bliss contributes a successful record at Richmond to the program's efforts. The Oregon native has a Top-5 and 3 Top-10s at the track in the Nationwide Series as well as a top 5 and 2 Top-10s from his Camping World Truck Series record and another Top-5 in the Sprint Cup Series.

This season marks the fourth consecutive year Westerman Companies has backed the efforts of Key Motorsports in NASCAR racing. "Key Motorsports has represented our company well and we look forward to being at the track with them for eight Nationwide Series races this year," said a company spokesperson.

ALWAYS BETTER THE SECOND TIME AROUND - This is the first track on the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule in which Key Motorsports and driver Mike Bliss will experience a return trip. The pairing competed at the September 11, 2009 event here, as well as the later Kansas event.

CURTIS KEY COMPETES AT HOME - Key Motorsports was never able to run the home track while participating in the Camping World Truck series, as Richmond International Raceway was not on the schedule during the team's activities in that series. Last fall's Nationwide event was the first time the team experienced a "home field advantage."
