This Week's Tundra... Mike Skinner and the No. 5 Exide Toyota Tundra team will compete in RMM-045 this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. Randy Moss Motorsports has not utilized this particular chassis in 2010. In fact, its last showing was at Talladega Superspeedway last season where Skinner was racing in the fifth position when he was involved in an on-track incident on lap 91 eliminating the team's chance of victory.

Mike Skinner on racing at Talladega Superspeedway

"Talladega [Superspeedway] is a track where the No. 5 Exide Toyota Tundra team has everything to gain and nothing to lose. We can gamble, go for it and take chances that other teams can't--we will be racing for the win. Talladega [Superspeedway] is a track that always lends itself to photo finishes that go down to the wire and I'm sure this weekend will not be anything different--hopefully the Exide team will be able to find a little luck and we'll have our Toyota Tundra as a part of that photo finish."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at Talladega Superspeedway

"The Exide crew is excited to get the No. 5 Toyota Tundra on the track this weekend at Talladega [Superspeedway]. We've done a lot of work over the last few weeks to help us find speed at superspeedways and I think we will be able to benefit from that this weekend. The tough thing about Talladega is that the race is as much about survival as it is about speed. We'll work with Mike [Skinner] to come up with a strategy that will hopefully keep us out of trouble throughout the afternoon and put us in position at the end of the race."
