Almirola Stoked to Continue BBM Success at Texas

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (May 30, 2010) - The No. 51 Graceway Pharmaceuticals team's track record at Texas Motor Speedway has Aric Almirola excited about competing in this week's WinStar World Casino 400. The Billy Ballew Motorsports team has three top-two finishes in six starts at TMS, including one win (Kyle Busch, 2009). Aric Almirola will be piloting the same chassis that Kyle Busch drove to victory lane last season.

Almirola is currently riding a streak of six consecutive top-10 finishes, and has finished no worse than seventh-place at the mile-and-a-half venues this season.

The No. 51 truck will carry a different paint scheme this week. Zyclara, a new product from Graceway Pharmaceuticals which is FDA-approved for the treatment of actinic keratoses (AK), will be on Almirola's truck for the remainder of the season. Zyclara can be used on large areas of skin, including the full face or balding scalp on a convenient, 6-week dosing cycle.

Almirola Comments on WinStar World Casino 400: "We have run well at the mile-and-a-half race tracks. We've run good everywhere, so I'm looking forward to racing at Texas.

"The truck we are taking is chassis number No. 32. Kyle won there at Texas in truck No.32, so we should have a good starting package. We can hopefully get back to victory lane soon, hopefully there at Texas.

"This is shaping up o be a close points battle. Todd (Bodine) and I are really close in the points now, but there are so many good teams in the Truck Series garage. Hornaday, Timothy Peters, Matt Crafton, Mike Skinner are all going to be there at the end. The Graceway Pharmaceuticals team can't focus on just Todd Bodine, we have to focus on beating everyone or we'll get left behind."
