The STP® logo, which has long been a presence in the sport, will be prominently featured on each of the team’s four entries in Saturday’s STP 300 – the No. 38 of Jason Leffler, the No. 32 of Reed Sorenson, the No. 31 of Justin Allgaier and the No. 30 to be driven by Mikey Kile.

– Start of a new era for Turner Motorsports… The 2011 season marks the start of a new era for Turner Motorsports. The team has expanded in 2011 from a two-truck operation in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) to become the largest stand-alone multi-series team in NASCAR’s top-tier touring series, fielding three entries in the NCWTS and four entries in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS). Three of the team’s regular NNS drivers (Jason Leffler, Reed Sorenson and Justin Allgaier) have been pegged as viable contenders to win the 2011 NNS driver championship.

Mikey Kile on getting back behind the wheel at Chicagoland Speedway “I am excited to get back behind the wheel of the No. 30 Impala. I learned a lot in Nashville about the Nationwide cars and communicating with the team and I will be able to expand upon that this weekend. I’m proud to have our great new partners, Battery Tender and STP ® on the car this weekend and hopefully bring home a solid finish for them both.”
