Randy Tolsma on Memphis: Randy Tolsma, driver of the No. 25 Team Marines Chevrolet, is excited about heading to Memphis, a place where he has enjoyed much success in the past during his days in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, with two-top-tens and two 13th place finishes in his last four visits.

"I enjoy racing on the short tracks and I'm looking forward to heading back to Memphis," said Tolsma. "It's a track I know well and understand what I need from the car in order to be competitive. I'm looking forward to an exciting race and expecting a strong finish for Team Rensi Motorsports and the Team Marines."

Troy Selberg on Memphis: "Track position is everything at Memphis," says Team Marines crew chief, Troy Selberg. "You can wind up a lap down real fast if you're not careful. The key is to have a good qualifying run and to stay up front. Pit stops are also a key ingredient to success at a short track. They can make you or break you. The Team Marines crew and myself are ready for an exciting, action-packed race. We have our sights set on a good qualifying run, lightning fast pit stops and a great finish."

Equipment: Car No. 7 is the car that the Team Marines will compete with in Memphis. This is the same car that Tolsma and his team tested at Rockingham just last week, a test session that Selberg considered to be "very successful." Car No. 7 was also taken to both the Dover and Bristol spring races.

Look for Randy at: The "Bash on Beal Street" in Beale Street Park, Memphis, TN on Thursday, October 11th, from 8 -- 9pm, where he'll be greeting fans and signing autographs. <pre> Randy Tolsma's NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Stats at Memphis Motorsports Park:
