June 1, 2013

Welcome to the First State… The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) will make its first trip of the 2013 season to Dover International Speedway (DIS) this weekend for the 5-hour ENERGY 200. Nelson Piquet Jr. will make his first career NNS start at DIS on Saturday afternoon, having only previously raced at the 1.0-mile track in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, where he earned a top-five finish last spring.

This Week’s Camaro… The No. 30 WORX team will have chassis TSM-329 for this Saturday afternoon’s race at DIS. TSM-329 was previously used by Piquet Jr. at Auto Club Speedway and Darlington Raceway, where he earned two 16th-place finishes.

Autism Speaks… Piquet Jr. and the rest of his Turner Scott Motorsports Nationwide teammates will run a special Autism Speaks puzzle piece decal this weekend at DIS. This will mark the seventh-consecutive year the track has worked with Autism Speaks to raise awareness and funds for the cause.

Charlotte Recap… Making his first career NNS start at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend, Piquet Jr. looked to start the summer portion of the schedule out on the right foot in the History 300. Piquet Jr. and his No. 30 WORX Yard Tools team started the weekend by qualifying 13th at the 1.5-mile oval. Piquet Jr. was able to battle all afternoon and bring home a 16th-place finish.

Familiar Face… For the ninth time this year, Piquet Jr. will display the No. 30 WORX colors on Saturday afternoon at DIS.

Nelson Piquet Jr. on his return to Dover:

“I am looking forward to getting back on the track this weekend at Dover. I had some success there last year in the Truck Series, so hopefully I can capitalize on that. Dover is a very fast track with high banking. If we stay smart and patient, I think we can bring the WORX Yard Tools Camaro home with a good finish.”
