* Tayler Malsam Back in the No. 10... Following his top-20 finish at Daytona, Malsam stepped out of the No. 10 Toyota for a week while veteran Sprint Cup Series driver, David Reutimann, stepped in. Reutimann posted a fourth-place finish in his last appearance in the No. 10 Beringer Camry in 2010. Malsam gets back into the seat of the No. 10 Iron Horse Jeans Camry this weekend at Gateway International Raceway for his first Nationwide Series start at the St. Louis-based track.

* Site of His First Top-Five... Gateway marks Malsam's first-career top-five finish in one of NASCAR's top-three series. In his only visit to the track in 2009 with the Camping World Truck Series, Malsam finished in the fifth position after starting the race 17th.

* Did you know? Malsam is a Music Buff... Though the rookie driver is only 21 years-old he has sophisticated music taste. One of his all time favorite musicians? The late Johnny Cash. Malsam idolizes 'The Man in Black' so much that his helmet is designed as a tribute to the country star.

Malsam on racing at Gateway International Raceway

"Gateway should be a really good race for us! I have only raced at the track once before with the trucks, but we were able to finish in the top-five," said Malsam. "After having a weekend off and being able to get home to Seattle, I'm really ready to get back in the No. 10. Being a stand-alone race we have a really good opportunity to bring home a great finish for Iron Horse Jeans and Braun Racing!"

Equipment Information
