ADVANCE NOTES

· Pastrana at Talladega Superspeedway

o Travis Pastrana and the No. 60 Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) team head to Talladega Superspeedway for the second restrictor plate race of the season. The driver of the No. 60 Ford Mustang will make his first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. Pastrana earned a top-10 in his first start of the season at the circuit’s other restrictor plate track, Daytona International Speedway (DIS).

· The Car

o The No. 60 team brings Chassis RK-690 back to the track this weekend. This is the same chassis that Pastrana drove to 10th at DIS in the 2013 season-opener.

· Recapping Richmond

o Pastrana turned in a career-high ninth-place finish in Friday night’s NNS race at RIR. In one of the strongest performances of his short NASCAR career, Pastrana battled back from 31st and a lap down, powering his No. 60 Ford Mustang to his third top-10 finish of the season.

o Pastrana is now 13th in the NNS point standings.

QUOTE WORTHY

Pastrana on racing at Talladega:

“I’m still a newcomer to restrictor plate races, but I know I will have a great car. I plan to practice with Trevor on pushing and being pushed. Hopefully, we will have some luck, avoid the big crashes and be in contention for the win.”
