CARMICHAEL ON CHARLOTTE: Carmichael will be wearing his rookie stripe in this weekend's North Carolina Education Lottery 200 as he makes his on-track debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

CARMICHAEL ON TRUCKS: Carmichael scored his career-high finish of fourth in last weekend's Dover 200, putting both Turner Motorsports trucks in the top-five. In addition to his top-five finish, Carmichael scored two top-10 finishes (Atlanta and Martinsville) in the first six races of the 2010 season.

CARMICHAEL ON COMPETING AT CHARLOTTE: "I'm looking forward to the race in Charlotte. I've never been there, but I've heard a lot of great things about it. I'm going to approach this like any other track that I've never been to and stay focused and learn as much as I can as quickly as I can."

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Crew chief Mike Fritts has chosen Turner Motorsports chassis No.10 for Carmichael to pilot at Charlotte. This chassis was brand new for Nashville when Carmichael had an on-track incident in practice, preventing him from racing this truck during the race.

MEET RICKY: Fans can get their chance to meet Ricky Carmichael in-person from 2-3 pm on Thursday, May 20 at the Wal-Mart Supercenter at 5825 Thunder Road in Concord, NC. The Monster Energy sampling team will be on-hand with free samples for the fans.
