RIDING WAVE OF MOMENTUM TO MIAMI - Colin Braun and the No. 16 Con-way Freight team head to Miami with confidence after scoring a seventh-place finish at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend, tying Braun's previous season high finish. It was the rookie's fifth top-10 finish of the season and he picked up rookie of the race honors for the ninth time in 2010 as well.

HOMESTEAD CHASSIS SELECTION - Crew chief Chad Norris has selected RK-374 for the season finale Ford 300 at Homestead Miami Speedway. This car was last driven by Braun at California where the rookie started 35th and finished 13th.

Braun, on the final race at Homestead:
"That seventh-place finish in Phoenix last weekend was a really great momentum booster and has Chad [Norris, crew chief] and the guys ready to do it again one last time this weekend. Homestead is a track that I've had success at in both the Truck Series and back in my sports car days and I'm excited to see what we can do there with our Con-way Freight Ford. We got a top-15 finish with this chassis in California a few weeks ago and I believe we can better that for sure this weekend."

Crew chief Chad Norris, on the season finale in Homestead:
"Coming off a good run at Phoenix with Colin and the Con-way Freight Ford, we are excited for the finale at Homestead to finish out the season with a solid top five or a win. We are all thrilled to be in Miami for Ford weekend and for the last race with Con-way Freight for the season. Colin has been pretty good there in the Truck Series and we are ready to build on his strong performances that he has had there in the past."
