* Brian Vickers is back behind the wheel of the No.32 ABF/Seymour Paint Camry this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway after sitting out the last two Nationwide Series events.

* The No.32 team has found success this season but has also experienced disappointment. In six races so far, the team has captured three top-10 finishes but in the remaining three events, has finished outside of the top-25.

* Vickers has only one Nationwide Series start at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) which came in the spring of 2003. He started fifth but was caught up in a late-race accident and was relegated to a 25th place finish.

* Vickers also has seven Sprint Cup starts as the Ft. Worth 1.5-mile tri-oval, including three top-20 finishes and one pole in 2006. He's completed 84.2 percent of all laps possible in Sprint Cup competition, including 13 laps led.

ABF Freight adds Seymour of Sycamore to the No.32 at Texas Motor Speedway

* ABF Freight Co. is in its third year of sponsorship at Braun Racing. A partnership that began in 2006 has been nothing short of successful. Last year, ABF etched their name in the history books when the ABF Camry captured the first Toyota Camry pole in history at California Speedway. This season, the ABF Camry will be piloted by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, Brian Vickers, in nine races.

* This weekend Seymour of Sycamore will take ABF's place on the hood of the No.32. Seymour, the inventor of aerosol spray paint, is the supplier of choice for quality aerosol coatings and chemical products. Seymour of Sycamore served as the primary sponsor for a Braun Racing Camry in two races during the 2007 season.

* Vickers on Racing at Texas Motor Speedway "Texas is a big track with a wide racing groove. Whatever your car is doing to can change the line you run to help the condition. I really enjoy going to Texas because the facility and the people are all so nice and welcoming. It's a fun race for the fans and for the drivers. Hopefully we'll be there at the end fighting for win and the right to wear the cowboy hats in Victory Lane!"

Equipment Information

The No. 32 ABF/Seymour Paint team will compete with chassis 37 in this weekend's O'Reilly 300. This is the same chassis Brian Vickers raced at Las Vegas Motor Speedway where he started on the pole and finished 36th due to an accident. Denny Hamlin also raced No.37 at Nashville Superspeedway where he started 21st and finished seventh.
