Tayler Malsam Goes Back to His Road Racing Roots at Road America... Like many in the field for the inaugural NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race at Road America, Malsam has never raced at the track, but he knows his way around a road course. In 2006, Malsam ran the full Formula TR open-wheel road racing series season, finishing 5th in the point standings.

Dan Stillman to Serve as Crew Chief on the No. 10 at Road America and NHMS... Stillman, who worked with Malsam at Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) as crew chief on his Camping World Truck Series entry, will serve as crew chief on an interim basis while crew chief Stewart Cooper serves a NASCAR assessed penalty. Prior to his time spent at KBM, Stillman served as crew chief on Carl Edwards's No. 60 Nationwide Series entry in 2009 racking up 7 poles and 5 wins before being swapped to the team's No. 6 entry. The veteran crew chief has also spent time at Dale Earnhardt Inc., Michael Walthrip Racing, and Kevin Harvick Inc.

Malsam on road racing

"I really enjoy road racing. I did a lot of it at the beginning of my career in the Formula TR Series, but those cars are a lot lighter and handle much differently than the stock cars. I'm excited to get on a road course in the No. 10 Iron Horse Toyota, and see how the big cars handle out there. We have had two really good cars in my first two races with Braun, and the guys have been working so hard I know we are going to have another great race car at Road America."

Equipment Information

The No. 10 Iron Horse Jeans team will hit the track with chassis #BR052 in this weekend's Bucyrus 200 presented by Menards. This is a brand new chassis in the Braun Racing stable built for the inaugural race at Road America in 2010.
