* NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Trevor Bayne will take the wheel of the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota at Richmond International Raceway this weekend.

* Bayne has run in 11 Nationwide Series races in the 2009 season, earning one pole and one top-10 finish (both at O'Reilly Raceway Park).

CJM Racing Quick Facts:

* Last week, mechanical problems ended a strong run by CJM Racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway. After qualifying 32nd, driver Kelly Bires had advanced the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota up to 12th place when a failed engine on a restart forced the team to retire early with a 32nd-place finish.

Driver Trevor Bayne on Racing the No. 11 RIDEMAKERZ Toyota:

"I'm pumped about getting to go racing this weekend. I thought I was going to have a month off, but this sort of all came together with the folks at CJM Racing. They are great guys, and I think Paul Wolfe puts together a fast car each weekend. It's important for me to get seat time and I'm thankful for this opportunity. I'm ready to go racing with these guys. They have a cool car with RIDEMAKERZ and I think we can give them a good showing."

Driver Trevor Bayne on Richmond:

"I've never raced at Richmond, but I've seen the race from the stands. I never made any laps around the track, but that's been like most places I've been to this season. The only tracks I've been before were Bristol and Iowa, but I think we've picked it up pretty quick at all the new tracks. Our average starting position has been good and I've been able to adapt with no major problems. I like the one-day show because it's what I've been used to coming up the ranks. We have plenty of time for practice and I feel good about it."
