SHERMAN GETS BACK TO ROAD RACING ROOTS

Mexico City, Mexico - Brent Sherman spent three years racing on road courses before ever stepping foot in a stock car. In 2001, Sherman competed in six Grand Am road racing events including a series best fourth-place finish at Watkins Glen International. This weekend at the Telcel Motorola 200 in Mexico City, Sherman will revisit his road racing roots.

"I'm excited to get back to a road race course. It's been a couple of years since I've raced on one." Sherman said.

Sherman is optimistic that the No. 58 Serta Mattress/Hickory Farms Dodge Charger will be setup for what is sure to be a difficult qualifying run with a field of at least 51 competitors.

"It'll be just as difficult to get into this race as the last two. There are several talented Mexican drivers as well as Nextel Cup regulars trying to get into this race," Sherman said. "Hopefully my road racing experience will help ensure us a spot in the field."

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is a 2.518-mile road course located in Mexico City. The Telcel Motorola 200 is 80 laps and 201.44 miles. The event will mark the first NASCAR Busch Series race in Mexico.

The Telcel Motorola 200 will air this Sunday live on FOX at 3 p.m. EST.
