MORE CAROLINA HISTORY: The Toyota Camrys will make their fourth NNS start at Charlotte's Lowe's Motor Speedway on Friday night. In May, Camry driver Busch earned the win in the Braun Racing No. 32 Camry. Other Camry drivers who earned top-five finishes included Hamlin (second) and Vickers (fifth).

BRAUN BEST: "I said before the race that hopefully Braun Racing could bring the Dollar General Toyota home first, and the Joe Gibbs Toyota could be second," said Busch, about winning for Braun Racing at Charlotte in May. "Fortunately, it worked out that way. What an awesome race car. It didn't start out that great -- we really had to work on it. Todd Lohse (crew chief) and the guys made a lot of adjustments and we got it going to where it was a lot better."

DOUBLE DUTY: Four Camry drivers will compete in Friday night's NNS race along with Saturday night's NSCS race. Busch will compete for JGR in both events and Reutimann will compete for MWR in the two races. Blaney and Vickers will pilot Camrys for Braun Racing on Friday night while Blaney will be behind the wheel of his Bill Davis Racing No. 22 Camry on Saturday night and Vickers will drive his Red Bull Racing No. 83 Camry.

CAMRY COUNT: Toyota drivers have earned 18 NNS wins this season. Busch has eight victories, including three consecutive at Texas (April 5), Phoenix (April 11) and Mexico City (April 20), along with victories at Charlotte (May 24), Chicagoland (July 11), Indianapolis (July 26), California (Aug. 30) and Dover (Sept. 20). Stewart has five NNS wins at Daytona (Feb. 16), California (Feb. 25), Talladega (April 26), Darlington (May 9) and New Hampshire (June 28). Hamlin has recorded four victories at Richmond (May 2), Dover (May 31), Daytona (July 4) and Kansas (Sept. 27). Logano scored his first career NNS career win at Kentucky (June 14).

POINTS PACE: Four Toyota drivers are in the top-10 in NNS points after 30 of 35 races, with Reutimann (sixth) the highest among the Camry contingent, followed by Busch (seventh), Mike Wallace (eighth), and Jason Leffler (ninth).
