The Aaron's 312 will be Ward Burton's 8th start in the #27 Brewco entry in 2007. His best finish in seven races is 15th at Las Vegas; best start 8th at Bristol. Brewco Motorsports will display a custom Cottonelle Aloe & E paint scheme for the Aaron's 312. Food World will be the retail customer displayed on the quarter panels at Talladega

The #27 Brewco Motorsports car has raced eight times at Talladega. The best finish was 8th; best start 7th - both by Casey Atwood in April, 1999.

Ward Burton, wife Tabitha, and 14-year old son Jeb visited Virginia Tech on Monday, April 23rd. Burton visited memorials dedicated to the victims of the April 16th tragedy, ate lunch with mechanical engineering faculty members, and mingled with the students.

"I'm a Virginian and I know Virginia Tech has had an influence from urban to rural all over the state of Virginia," Burton said. "Some of my employees are either graduates of Tech, have children going to Tech, or somebody works for Tech. It's just a far-reaching institution that does so many great things for the state of Virginia."

"The NASCAR community always rises (to the occasion during) a national crisis, whatever that may be. We're just happy to be part of any healing process, and wanted to come show our support. Go Hokies."

The Ward Burton Foundation is a partner with Virginia Tech's department of natural resources on conservation projects.
