NEWS, NOTES & NUMBERS: Toyota Camry drivers have recorded six wins (Busch -- California, Texas, Richmond and Nashville-2; Logano - Nashville-1 and Kentucky), 23 top-fives and 52 top-10 finishes through 15 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) races in 2009... Busch leads the NNS series point standings, holding a 127-point advantage over second-place Carl Edwards ... Former Toyota driver Tony Stewart won last year's NNS race at NHMS ... Logano will visit David's House, a support facility for families of children receiving treatment, at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth on Thursday... This weekend marks the 100th NNS start for Vickers, who made his NASCAR debut on July 1, 2001 at The Milwaukee Mile.

What do you think about racing at New Hampshire? "New Hampshire is a lot of fun. It's fun racing because that high groove sort of comes in there, but you can also run the apron which is pretty cool for a short track. A lot of times you're pinned to a little bit of a one-groove line there. It almost races like it has banking but it's completely flat. It's cool that it has a couple extra lines and New Hampshire is kind of tricky. Coming off of turn two the wall seems like it just sucks you in -- the road falls off into the wall. When you do 300 or 400 laps like we did in the Cup car last year, you end up hitting it a few times. Hopefully, we'll stay off of it this time."
