No. 40 TEAM FACTS:

Home Sweet Home: This will be Stremme's third start in a NEXTEL Cup car at his home track of Lowes Motor Speedway. He has five Busch Series starts, as well. His average-starting spot at the 1.5-mile track in seven starts is 25th and his average finish is 22nd.

Earlier this Season: Back in May after starting 25th for the Coca-Cola 600, Stremme fought the handling of the car before a vibration sent him to pit road with 27 laps remaining. Stremme settled for a 31st-place finish in his second Cup Series start at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Autograph Seekers Alert: Stremme and teammate Reed Sorenson will be signing autographs this Thurs., Oct. 12 from 10-11:30 am at Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates' Concord, N.C. location. Wristbands are required and can be picked up at the gift shop or can be reserved by calling 866.888.6388.

Ladies Night: Tonight (Oct. 10), leading into the last night-race weekend of the NEXTEL Cup season, CGRFS is calling all ladies to get a "behind the scenes" look at the fast world of racing during its first-ever Ladies Night at its Concord, N.C. race shop facility. Attendees will be taken on a private tour of the team's race shop, along with a preview of the latest Trackcouture ladies fashions. Guests will also get some time to chat with Becky Sorenson, mother of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup rookie Reed Sorenson. Limited seating is available, so please call 1.866.888.6388 to make your reservation.

Rookie Ranks: Stremme is currently sixth in the Raybestos Rookie of the Year standings. With 147 points, he is 118 points behind leader Denny Hamlin and only 31 points behind fifth-place J.J Yeley.

NASCAR NEXTEL Cup points standings: Stremme is currently 34th in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup driver standings and the No. 40 Dodge is 34th in the owner standings. There are now six races remaining in the 2006 season.

David Stremme Quote:

"I am looking forward to being at home this weekend at Lowes Motor Speedway. We are taking a car that our teammate Reed Sorenson has had a lot of success in and hopefully we can also see success in that car this weekend. It is always nice to race close to home and be able to stay at the house rather than in the motor home. My mom and grandmother are coming to watch me race, so I would like to get a solid finish in the Coors Light Dodge under the lights at Charlotte."
