Chase On New Hampshire:

Chase is coming off a disappointing 27th place finish in his last race at the Richmond International Raceway where he suffered various tire and wheel issues. The 20-year-old rookie looks to rebound with a strong showing this weekend in New Hampshire.

"Again, we are going to a track that I have never seen before. We have adapted really well so far this year when we have gone to these places. This is where my teammates, Bobby Hamilton and Chad Chaffin, really help me with what to expect and some tips that are very useful. I will lean on them again this week.

The guys on this team have been doing a great job of giving me strong trucks every week. Also, I have done very well on these flat tracks so far this season and I expect that trend to continue this week."

#8 DODGE at New Hampshire:

Chase will be racing the truck named "Chunky" this week. This will be the sixth race of the season for "Chunky" and it has turned out to be one of Chase's favorite trucks out of the BHR2 stable. The truck was raced last week at Richmond and before that at Bristol, Gateway, Memphis and Milwaukee.

Back To White:

After two races of running the now popular green Herbalife truck in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Chase and his BHR2 team will be back to their familiar white #8 DODGE this week.

"We had a blast with the Herbalife truck and it definitely got a lot of attention," said Chase. "We hope to be able to do more with them later this year and run some additional races. I never thought I would like a green truck - but that thing was sharp."

Notes:

Chase will be making his 19th career start this week in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. In the previous 18 starts, he has accumulated eight top 20 finishes with a career best of 12th earlier this season at Gateway. The rookie also has a best starting spot of second (Daytona) to his credit.

Career at New Hampshire:

Chase will be making his career debut at the 1.058 mile-oval of the New Hampshire International Speedway.
