Bristol, TN (August 20, 2007)-NASCAR NEXTEL Cup driver Kyle Busch and Billy Ballew will be back together again for the short-track showdown at the Bristol Motor Speedway Wednesday, August 22, 2007 for the running of the O'Reilly 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race.

Busch will be making his first appearance back in the No. 51 Flanders Beef Patties Chevrolet Silverado since his runner-up finish at the Michigan International Speedway June 16th. The No. 51 Chevrolet Silverado will be making its first run since Aric Almirola piloted the FedEx Express Chevrolet Silverado truck at the Memphis Motorsports Park June 30th.

Busch has two previous NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts at the Bristol Motor Speedway with a best start of seventh in 2006 and a best finish of fifth in 2005. Busch has 13 total starts at the .533-mile short track with one win, four top-five and five top-10 finishes and one pole in the Busch Series and one win, two top-five and three top-10 finishes in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. Billy Ballew Motorsports has five previous starts at Bristol in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series with a best start of fourth and a best finish of second in 2004.

"We are excited about having Flanders Beef Patties back on board the No. 51 truck this week," Ballew said. "We came close in Dover for the win and even closer in Michigan with a second place finish. It would be great to put Flanders in Victory Lane this weekend at a coveted track like Bristol. Kyle is a talented racecar driver and if anyone can put the truck there, he can."
