Kyle "Rowdy" Busch will make his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Friday, July 24, 2009 for the running of the AAA Insurance 200 presented by JD Byrider at O'Reilly Raceway Park (ORP) piloting the No. 51 Miccosukee Resort/RedTop Auto Auction Toyota Tundra.

Busch last piloted the Billy Ballew Motorsports entry at Michigan International Speedway in June posting a second place finish. Busch has posted two wins, five top-5 and six top-10 finishes in seven NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts in 2009.

Busch has two NASCAR Nationwide Series wins in four starts at the Indianapolis, Indiana short track. He has three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts posting a best finish of eighth place in 2008 for Billy Ballew Motorsports. The team has nine previous starts at the .686-mile short track in Indianapolis, Indiana.

"We're looking forward to having Kyle (Busch) back in the truck this weekend," Team owner, Billy Ballew said. "ORP is a great short track with a lot of action for the drivers and especially the fans."

Kyle Busch will be racing in all three NASCAR Top-Tier Touring Series this weekend at ORP and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Brian Ickler will be on standby for NCWTS qualifying incase of schedule changes at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Miccosukee Resort will serve as the primary sponsor on the No. 51 Billy Ballew Motorsports entry with RedTop Auto Auction as the associate sponsor for the 200 lap race.

The AAA Insurance 200 (200 laps, 137.2 Miles) NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race is slated to begin at 8:00pm ET Friday July 24, 2009. SPEED will broadcast live coverage of the race beginning at 7:30 pm ET with live truck series qualifying at 5:00pm ET.

As part of race week activities in Indianapolis, Indiana will be at the Dave Illingworth Toyota Dealership on Wednesday July 22nd at 4:30 pm for an autograph signing with the Rowdy Trailer. The Rowdy Style Souvenir Hauler will be at ORP for the Truck and Nationwide Races as well.
