Shane Hmiel / Braun Racing Quick Facts:

- BR10 is the same car that Shane Hmiel drove at Darlington at the end of 2004

- Hmiel ran 4 races for Braun Racing at the end of the 2004 season, including Phoenix

- In 2004, Hmiel was involved in an accident and finished a disappointing 32nd at Phoenix

Shane Hmiel about Phoenix International Raceway:

"I'm looking forward to heading back out west to Phoenix. At the end of last season, Phoenix was one of the first few races that I ran for Braun Racing. Unfortunately, we were involved in an accident and we ended up only finishing 32nd. We will definitely be able to improve upon that finish from last year."

Hmiel about the #32 WINFUEL team's preparation for Phoenix:

"I feel so much more confidant going back to Phoenix this time around with Braun Racing. Every week when we go to the track, I know that my guys have worked hard to prepare the best cars that they possibly can. I'm able to go to each track feeling like we have a good shot at going to Victory Lane. Last year, Phoenix was only my third race with the team and I was still getting to know all of the guys and they were getting comfortable with me too. This year, we've been able to come together as a team and I know that I can depend on my WINFUEL guys."

Shane about Braun Racing's new marketing partner, The Fraternal Order of Eagles:

Last week at Texas, Braun Racing added a new marketing partner, The Fraternal Order of Eagles. We had a group of guests from the organization and it was the first time that most of them had even been to a race. It was great to be able to win the pole for them in the first weekend that they were on board with Braun. The Eagles are a wonderful charitable group and we are proud to have them as an associate sponsor on the #32 WINFUEL Chevrolet."
