* The Camping World RV Service 300 will mark Brian Vickers' fourth Nationwide Series start at Auto Club Speedway. In three previous starts he has earned one top-10 finish. One of those starts came in a Braun Racing entry in August 2007 where Vickers earned his best start of ninth and finished 27th due to an accident.

* Making his 10th start of the season for Braun Racing, Vickers has earned the team six top-10 finishes including a fourth place finish at Daytona in February, a fifth place finish at Lowe's in May, a fourth place finish at Chicagoland in July and a runner-up finish at Michigan. He is scheduled to run a total of 15 races for the Braun Racing team during the 2008 season.

* Vickers has experienced even more success on the Fontana, California two-mile oval in the Sprint Cup Series. In nine Cup starts, Vickers has three top-10's and one top-five to his credit. He also has completed 99.3% of all laps possible, including 49 laps led.

ABF Freight adds Seymour of Sycamore to the No.32 at Auto Club Speedway

ABF Freight Co. is in its third year of sponsorship at Braun Racing. A partnership that began in 2006 has been nothing short of successful. Last year, ABF etched their name in the history books when the ABF Camry captured the first Toyota Camry pole in history at California Speedway. This season, the ABF Camry will be piloted by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran, Brian Vickers, in nine races.

This weekend Seymour of Sycamore will take ABF's place on the hood of the No.32. Seymour, the inventor of aerosol spray paint, is the supplier of choice for quality aerosol coatings and chemical products. Seymour of Sycamore served as the primary sponsor for a Braun Racing Camry in two races during the 2007 season.

Vickers on racing at Auto Club Speedway "We seem to really have some momentum going these past couple weeks. We finished second at Michigan and then ninth last weekend in Bristol, so I'm confident we can carry that to California and get another strong finish for this Seymour Paint and ABF team. Racing at Auto Club Speedway is a lot of fun because the track is so wide you can run multiple grooves. The cars do get pretty spaced out during the race so track position is key. We'll work on making sure we stay up front all night and hopefully have a shot at Victory Lane!"

Equipment Information The No. 32 Seymour Paint/ABF Racing team will compete with chassis #24 in the Camping World RV Service 300 at Auto Club Speedway. This is the same chassis Vickers raced at Michigan two weeks ago where he started third and finished second.
