* The American Commercial Lines 200 will mark TJ Bell's fourth Camping World Truck Series start at the 1.54 mile track at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

* Bell is hungry for his very first back to back top-5 finish after experiencing his career best fifth place finish in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finish two weeks ago in the San Bernardino County 200, in Fontana California.

* There is no doubt Bell knows what it takes to maneuver his way through the field at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Last October in the Camping World Truck Series EZ-Go 200 race, TJ drove an extremely tight race truck from a 21st starting position to a respectable ninth place finish.

Bell on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway Quote from TJ: "Last fall when I ran a truck there, I had a blast racing with Kyle Busch and learned a lot about being able to move around the track to different grooves. The track itself is very fast, bumpy and really hard tires are needed. I am excited to get back in the truck after the California race and my first top-5 finish and equally as excited to be paired up with my crew chief Rick Gay and to be a part of this #11 Team at Red Horse Racing".

Veteran Crew Chief Rick Gay on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway Quote from Rick: "Tire wear is a huge problem in Atlanta mainly the right side, so we will be keeping an eye on that for sure. I am looking forward to keeping the momentum going from our top-5 finish in Fontana. It is refreshing to be working with a driver like TJ and all the guys on the team really seem to be getting along really well."

Equipment Information The No. 11 Red Horse Racing team will compete with chassis # 65 in the American Commercial Lines 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This will mark the first time Bell will compete with this chassis.

Red Horse Racing is currently running both the #1 Toyota Tundra driven by defending Champion Johnny Benson as well as the #11 driven by TJ Bell, without primary sponsorship.
