Hattori's Career at Nashville: This will be Shige Hattori's first start at the Nashville Superspeedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series but he has made one previous start at the track in the Indy Racing League.

Hattori Comments on the Toyota Tundra 200: "I'm looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the No. 9 AISIN/AISIN AW Germain Racing Toyota at the Nashville Superspeedway for the running of the Toyota Tundra 200. This is an important race to Toyota and I want to have a good result for all the employees and guests that will be at the event. Toyota and TRD have been big supporters of me throughout my career and I'd like to have a good showing for them."

Hattori Comments on Nashville Superspeedway: "Unfortunatley, I didn't get to test because I was in Japan with my sponsors but I've raced at Nashville in the IRL and am pretty comfortable with the race track. I know Nashville is hard on tires and setingup the truck is difficult. Tom (Ackerman), my crew chief has been working hard to get a solid truck together for the race. I know he and the mechanics have been working with the No. 30 team since they have been back from the Nashville test. I'm sure he has the right setup on the No. 9 truck. I've been out for a few weeks now and I am anxious to get some seat time this weekend. I have become more comfortable behind the wheel and know every lap I make helps improve my skills in the truck."
