MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 27, 2010) - The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) is venturing into uncharted territory this weekend. The series will make its inaugural excursion to the 2.5-mile Pocono Speedway for the running of the Pocono Mountains 125. Although no truck team has raced at the "Tricky Triangle," the No. 15 Billy Ballew Motorsports (BBM) team has track veteran Denny Hamlin behind the wheel of the Digital Qpons Toyota Tundra. Hamlin's experience and accomplishments at the speedway have the No. 15 team excited for their debut outing.

Hamlin's record at Pocono Raceway speaks for itself. Hamlin has four wins at the track in Sprint Cup competition, claiming victories in the two most recent events. In his 10 starts at Pocono, Hamlin has finished in the top-five six times and earned an average finish position of 8.6.

The Pocono Mountains 125 will mark Hamlin's fifth start with BBM. His best finish to date with BBM is third-place, which he achieved at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 2008.

The Pocono Mountains 125 will also mark Digital Qpons first race as a sponsor in NCWTS competition. Digital Qpons provides a performance-based platform for businesses to deliver targeted and interactive forms of Mobile Marketing. Digital Qpons has developed a system for businesses to freely manage their promotional offers, review campaign analytics, and make changes in real-time to maximize results.

Digital Qpons is quickly making a splash in the racing arena. Pocono Raceway, Track Scan scanner rentals and Charlotte Motor Speedway have all seen the value in what the company offers. They are choosing to participate by posting Qpons for race fans while they are at the events.

Hamlin Comments on The Pocono Mountains 125:

"This race is going to be a lot of fun. It's definitely one that everyone has a special incentive to win. It would be really cool to say that you were the first person to win a truck race at Pocono. Only one driver will have that honor. I'm really excited to have a shot at that.

"Billy Ballew Motorsports has given me a great truck each time I've raced with them. All you can hope for as a driver is to contend for wins. The 15 team has given me that each time I've driven for them. It makes racing with them a lot of fun.

"I love the length of Truck Series races. They're shorter races, so there's no holding back. You don't sit back and wait. You don't settle in and let your truck to come to you. There's no time for that, especially when you're at a track that can be difficult to pass. You give it everything you've got from the green flag. I think that's going to make for one of the most exciting races that the Pocono fans have seen."
