* Steve Wallace enters Michigan riding a streak of four consecutive top-ten finishes, the longest active streak of top-tens in the Nationwide Series; his 11 top-ten finishes in 2010 mark a new single-season career high, despite having 13 races remaining in the 2010 season.

* Wallace's primary car for this weekend's event is RWR-050. Slated as the primary car for the July Daytona event, the 50 car was severely damaged during practice when lead ballast from a "start-and-park" entry came loose and impacted Wallace's No. 66. His backup for this weekend is RWR-052, which scored a top-15 finish in the Daytona event from a backup role.

* The No. 66 team features two Michigan natives this weekend: spotter Tim Fedewa (Holt) and rear tire changer Jonathan Billy (Troy).

Brendan Gaughan, No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Toyota Camry:

* Like his teammate Wallace, Brendan Gaughan is also a former event winner at MIS, having won the 2003 NASCAR Truck Series race there. In his six Truck Series starts at MIS, Gaughan has three top-five finishes, with an average finish of 9.0.

* The primary car for Gaughan this weekend is RWR-051, which competed at Daytona with Gaughan aboard. His backup car this weekend is RWR-053, which has yet to see action in the Nationwide Series.
