Kyle Busch to pilot No.32 Dollar General stores Camry at Nashville

* Kyle Busch will make history this weekend when he performs cross county triple-duty. He will run the Craftsman Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night, the Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday evening and the Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday afternoon. If he takes the win in all three events, he will become the first driver ever to do so.

* Nashville native, Willie Allen, will practice the car for Kyle Busch at Nashville Superspeedway. Allen, 2007 Craftsman Truck Series Rookie-of-the-Year, will drive the No.32 in two practice sessions on Friday. Busch plans to arrive in Nashville in time for Nationwide Series qualifying on Saturday afternoon.

* In five starts at Nashville Superspeedway, Busch has one top-10 finish to his credit. He also sat on the pole earlier this spring when the Nationwide Series visited Music City in March. He has also competed 95.6% of all laps possible, including 191 laps led.

* Busch is on a roll so far this season. With just 14 races in the books, he has earned four Nationwide Series wins, one of which came at Lowe's Motor Speedway in the Braun Racing Camry. Busch has also earned four Sprint Cup Series wins and two Craftsman Truck Series wins.

Dollar General to sponsor Nashville race and Kyle Busch

This weekend Dollar General will play a duel sponsor role by adorning the No.32 Dollar General stores Camry and presenting the race at Nashville Superspeedway. The Federated Auto Parts 300 presented by Dollar General takes place just a few miles from Dollar General Headquarters' hometown of Goodlettsville, Tennessee.

Be sure to sign up for the Dollar General "DG300 Toyota Tundra Showdown" for your chance to win one of four Toyota Tundras. When you sign up, you pick a Braun Racing driver to support, either Brian Vickers or Jason Leffler. Eight finalists will be selected to attend the Dollar General 300 at LMS in October. The driver that finishes highest on the track in that race, Vickers or Leffler, will win Toyota Tundras for the four contestants that supported him. The contest will run until September 7, 2008. Anyone can sign up at the Dollar General displays at the track, mail in entries available at Dollar General locations, and online at www.dg300showdown.com.

Busch on racing at Nashville Superspeedway "It's going to be a very busy weekend for me! People keep asking me if I'm crazy to do this but I just want to be racing, wherever that may be! Nashville should be another good race for us. Willie is going to practice the car for me and I'll jump in and qualify and race it. Every week I've been in this car, we've been very competitive and this race shouldn't be any different. I'd like to get Dollar General back to Victory Lane in their hometown so all their employees get a chance to celebrate with us."

Equipment Information The No. 32 Dollar General team will compete with chassis #37 in Federated Auto Parts 300 presented by Dollar General. This is the same chassis Brian Vickers raced at Lowe's Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway where he finished fifth and sixth respectively. Denny Hamlin also raced this chassis at Nashville Superspeedway in March and finished seventh.
