No. 29 Ruby Tuesday/Miller Lite Ram News and Notes

* No. 29 BKR Ram in 2010...Keselowski will make his fourth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start of 2010 this Wednesday nigh at Bristol Motor Speedway (GIR). In his three other starts Keselowski has recorded finishes of 18th (4/2 -- Nashville Superspeedway), 28th (5/21 -- Charlotte Motor Speedway) and second (7/17 -- Gateway International Raceway), respectively.

* Exclusive Win... If Keselowski can find his way to Victory Lane on Wednesday night, he will join two exclusive driver groups. 19 drivers have won a race in all three touring series and Keselowski could join that group with a win. However, a smaller group awaits the 26-year-old. Keselowski can also join his father, Bob Keselowski, as the only father-son duo to win a NCWTS race.

* Home Race for Ruby Tuesday... Ruby Tuesday will make their Camping World Truck Series debut with Brad Keselowski Racing on Wednesday night. Ruby Tuesday considers this their home track as they are based in Maryville, Tenn.

Brad Keselowski on what it would mean to win his first NCWTS race

"Not only would winning a truck race put me in a select group of drivers that have won a race in all three national series, but I would also join my father as a truck series winner. We would be the first father-son duo to win a truck race. That would be very cool and it would mean a lot to me. My father was my hero and, unfortunately, I missed his truck series win at Richmond (1997). Joining him as a truck series winner would take a little of that disappointment away, I guess. We're bringing a brand-new truck this weekend and we feel really good about it. My Penske Racing teammate, Parker Kligerman, shook it down for us at Motor Mile Speedway on Monday. We're coming off a great run at Gateway last month and I love racing at Bristol, so we are hoping for good things to happen."

Crew chief Wayne Setterington on preparing a new truck for Bristol Motor Speedway

"All of the guys at BKR have worked extremely hard to get this new truck ready for Brad. We're all proud of it and we're anxious to see how it races. Brad does a great job each time he gets behind the wheel of his own truck. We've been giving him better trucks each race and I think it showed at Gateway that we can be competitive. Anything can happen at Bristol, but Brad loves the track and that confidence definitely spills over to the rest of the team. We're going up ther to win."
