The Busch Series rolls into the Lone Star state this weekend with the running of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. The DF2 Motorsports Chevrolet will have Winston Cup veteran Derrike Cope behind the wheel and sponsorship from C I Host.com on the car.

The O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 is one of the biggest Busch Series races of the season. Nationwide television coverage on Fox, in conjunction with well over 100,000 people in the stands and a purse of $1.2 million make this race and favorite of fans and drivers alike.

"We are very excited to be involved with NASCAR and it's a great opportunity to have C I Host's logos on car #94," said Christopher Faulkner, CEO of C I Host.com. "We have always positioned ourselves along side leaders in different in technology industries, now we are positioning ourselves in with a Daytona winning race car driver -- Derrike Cope and the DF2 Motorsports Busch National Series car #94. We cannot wait to see our logos fly around the track this weekend."

DF2 Motorsports co owner Danny Bost is extremely happy that a sponsor the caliber of cihost.com has come on board. "This is a great opportunity for the team. Our goal this year is to make a better showing at the track each week. The participation of a fine sponsor like cihost.com is a great help. We look forward to making a nice showing for them. "

Fred Bickford, co owner of the team commented, "C I Host first became involved with us earlier this year. We are extremely excited about their added involvement with us for Texas. I had to work out some logistics details with Mr. Faulkner who was in London at the time and through Internet chat software, email and a cell phone call we were able to put together a program in a very short time. I was absolutely amazed as to his efficiency and commitment toward completing this program. I look forward with working with him this weekend. We are going to have fun!"

Derrike Cope is also excited to have a new sponsor affiliated with the team. "This team has made great strides this year. Sponsorship will help us take this program to the next level. I look forward to racing at Texas and giving the sponsors something the cheer for."

Crew Chief Keith Koppenal will be at Texas as a crew chief for the first time this weekend and expects a good showing. "We are taking a brand new car this weekend. It's never been tested or on the track. Derrike is incredible to work for and will help us get the most out of the new Chevrolet. We fully expect good things out of the DF2 Motorsports team this weekend."

Cope and the No. 94 team expect to make the best of their race opportunity when they take the green flag in the O'Reilly 300 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 2, at 2 p.m. Eastern. The event will broadcast live on FOX Television and PRN Radio.
