Hungry Drivers Team News & Notes

* This weekend will mark Elliott's second career NASCAR Busch Series start at Memphis Motorsports Park where last year he started second and finished 20th in the No. 6 Dodge fielded by Tommy Baldwin Racing

* 40th Anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas... The No. 6 Hellmann's® Dodge will sport a special paint scheme this weekend featuring everybody's favorite "blockhead," Charlie Brown, and his famous "pitiful twig" Christmas tree from the animated television feature, A Charlie Brown Christmas, in honor the show's 40th anniversary.

Last Race

Last weekend at Lowe's Motor Speedway, Elliott drove the No. 6 Country Crock® Dodge to a 17th place finish after starting 26th.

Elliott at Memphis

Elliott has just one previous start at Memphis Motorsports Park. In 2004, Elliott started from the outside pole, completed all 255 laps and posted a 20th place finish.

Elliott on Memphis

"It's very difficult to get the chemistry working within a team when you just run a few races here and there. Working with the Hungry Drivers team for two consecutive races will be an extra advantage for us this weekend and will help to make us even more competitive. We're looking forward to a strong run in the Hellmann's® Charlie Brown Dodge and hope to have Charlie Brown and Snoopy join us in victory lane after the dust clears."

Equipment

Elliott will drive a brand new chassis, No. 25, in this weekend's Sam's Town 250. This will be the first time chassis No. 25 has seen on-track action.
