TODD BODINE TO FILL IN FOR DAVE BLANEY AT THE MILWAUKEE MILE

WEST ALLIS, Wisc. (June 23, 2007) -- Braun Racing is pleased to announce reigning NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Champion, Todd Bodine, will be filling in for Dave Blaney this weekend at The Milwaukee Mile. Bodine will practice, qualify, and race the No.10 Camping World Camry in tonight's AT&T 250.

"I'm handling over the reigns this week to Todd and I'm confident he'll do a good job for us," Dave Blaney said Saturday morning. "We've done really well on the Busch side this year but my Cup Series program has struggled a little. Because of that, I've decided to stay in Sonoma this weekend and focus on the No.22 Caterpillar Camry and try to get us back in the top-35 in points. I'm thankful for Bill Davis and Caterpillar's continued support as well as Todd Braun and my Busch team for understanding this difficult situation. I look forward to rejoining my Busch team in New Hampshire."

Bodine was a natural replacement for Blaney. As a fellow Toyota driver, Bodine finished third in Friday night's Truck Series Toyota Tundra Milwaukee 200. He has one NCTS win on the season at Texas Motor Speedway and eight top-10 finishes in 11 starts so far in 2007. Bodine's last Busch Series start was at Dover International Speedway on June 3rd, 2006.

Dave Blaney will be back in the No. 10 at New Hampshire International Speedway next weekend. Plans are still in place for Blaney to run the remainder of the Busch Series season. He is currently second in series point standings.
