Ward Burton will drive the #27 Scott Shop Towels / Sam's Club Ford Fusion in the Bashas' 200 this weekend. This will be Burton's 7th start in the #27 Brewco entry in 2007. His best finish in six races is 15th at Las Vegas; best start 8th at Bristol.

The Bashas' 200 will be Ward Burton's first ever Busch Series race at Phoenix. Burton has 151 career Busch starts, but Friday will be his first at PIR.

Brewco Motorsports will display a custom Scott Shop Towels paint scheme for the Bashas' 200. Sam's Club will be the retail customer displayed on the quarter panels at Phoenix

Brewco Motorsports engineers Mike Tam (#27) and Ben Beshore (#37) are graduates of Virginia Tech. At Phoenix, both Brewco cars will display Virginia Tech decals in memory of the lives lost during the tragedy on the VT campus this week.

Ward Burton on Phoenix Int'l Raceway and the Bashas' 200:

"This week, I'll race the same car (chassis #62) that I raced at Bristol several weeks ago. After qualifying 8th, we had an electrical problem early in the race that took us out of contention. However, this car was just as fast as the leaders through most of the race. I'm looking forward to carrying the Scott Shop Towels colors this week and showing everyone how strong this Brewco team really is."
