FAST FACTS:
BRAUN MAKING RETURN TRIP TO PHOENIX – Colin Braun will make his second
trip of 2010 to Phoenix International Raceway in the No. 16 Con-way
Freight Ford this weekend.  In his first race in April, Braun started a
promising eighth, but finished 24th after being caught in a multi-car
accident on the front stretch during a restart.

CON-WAY FOR FINAL TWO – Long-time Roush Fenway Racing sponsor/partner
Con-way Freight will be on board the No. 16 Ford for the final two races
of 2010 with Braun behind the wheel.  In his 22 prior starts this year,
Braun has notched four top-10 finishes. 

INTERMEDIATE TRACK STATS – Of his four top-10 finishes in 2010, all but
one (Michigan) came at intermediate tracks (tracks measuring between one
and two miles in length).  This is good news for Braun as he heads to
both Phoenix International Raceway and Homestead Miami Speedway, as both
are intermediate tracks.

ROUSH FENWAY RACING AT PHOENIX – In 48 Nationwide Series starts at
Phoenix International Raceway, Roush Fenway Racing has notched seven
wins, 19 top-fives, 33 top-10s, five pole awards and 1164 laps led.  The
wins were tallied by Carl Edwards (3), Greg Biffle (2), Matt Kenseth,

PHOENIX CHASSIS SELECTION – Crew chief Chad Norris has selected RK-461
for this weekend’s WYPALL 200 at Phoenix International Raceway.  Braun
last drove this car in July at O’Reilly Raceway Park where he finished
12th after starting seventh.

Braun, on heading to Phoenix:
“I’m really excited to get back in the Con-way Freight Ford this
weekend at Phoenix.  My first start there in the spring clearly didn’t
end the way we were hoping with the accident on the restart and so I’m
hoping to kind of get a second shot at the finish I know this team
deserves.  Chad [Norris, crew chief] and the guys worked hard in the
short time they had with this car and so I’m hopeful we can get a good
showing out on the west coast this weekend.”

Crew chief Chad Norris, on racing with Braun at Phoenix:
“We are excited to have Colin [Braun] back in the No. 16 car here
going into the remaining two races of the season.  I know he qualified
well at Phoenix in the spring and just got caught up in a wreck.  Our
over-the-wall guys have been getting it done for us on pit road the past
few weeks so if we can avoid trouble, I think we have the chance to get
Colin a solid top-10 finish this weekend in Phoenix.”
