NEWS, NOTES & NUMBERS: Toyota Camry drivers have combined for one win, four top-five results and 13 top-10 finishes after three of 35 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) races ... Brian Vickers and Steve Wallace are two of only four total NNS drivers to open the season with three straight top-10 finishes ... Vickers (third), Kyle Busch (fifth) and Wallace (sixth) are currently in the top-10 in the NNS point standings ... The Nationwide Series will have one more weekend off before returning to action at Bristol Motor Speedway, March 20.

STEVE WALLACE, No. 66 5-Hour Energy Toyota Camry, Rusty Wallace Racing

Are you happy with the way your team has performed to start the season? "Three top-10s is a great way for us to start the season. It always seems like the guys who can have a good start to the year and build some momentum tend to stay towards the front of the point standings for most of the year. We'll build on this and head to Bristol -- it's one of my favorite tracks and our hot rods should really be strong there."

BRIAN SCOTT, No. 11 AccuDoc Solutions Toyota Camry, Braun Racing

Has your wrist fully healed after breaking it last June during the Michigan NCWTS race? "Last Monday (March 1), my wrist was evaluated by a highly regarded specialist in New York. A high -resolution CT scan shows that it has healed to 85 percent. I will need to keep it braced and work on range of motion. However, there is nothing to hinder my commitment to my sponsors AccuDoc Solutions, StopRepairBills.com, BigSpot.com and the No. 11 Braun Racing Toyota team. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support."

TREVOR BAYNE, No. 99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry, Diamond-Waltrip Racing

What are your thoughts on the start of the 2010 season? "We had the best finish for Diamond-Waltrip Racing at Las Vegas -- actually my best career finish in the Nationwide Series -- so we're pumped up for Bristol. We've got some momentum going and I can't wait to get to my home track (Bristol). We're getting better and better each week. If we can continue to keep running like we are, I think we will be strong by the end of the year."
