* This Week's Tundra... The No. 5 International Truck/Monaco RVs team will race chassis RMM-108 this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Mike Skinner on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is one of my favorite tracks. I've had a lot of success there over the years and we hope to continue that trend this weekend. The guys on the International Truck/Monaco RVs Toyota Tundra team have put in a lot of long hours to prepare our truck for this race and I think we'll have a great weekend. We also have a new teammate at the track with Tayler Malsam in the No. 25 Exide Batteries Toyota Tundra; he's a talented driver and I think it will be cool to work with him again."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is one of those races that we circle the date on our calendar. Our International Truck/Monaco RVs team had a great race at the last mile-and-a-half track--Kentucky Speedway--so we're looking forward the race this weekend too. We've done a lot of work on our mile-and-a-half program and we feel that our trucks are getting better week after week. Given Skinner's past success at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, we hope to have a really great race on Saturday night."
