DRIVER CHASSIS SELECTIONS AT DAYTONA

By Micah Roberts
Posted 06/30/2011 at 03:50 PM

Jamie McMurray: Crew Chief Kevin Manion and the McDonald's team have elected to bring Chassis number #1109 to Daytona. This chassis was last raced earlier this year to a 21stplace finish at Talladega Superspeedway. It was also used in this season's Daytona 500, finishing 18th, and both Talladega races last season, where it came home second and 36th........ Brad Keselowski: The #2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team will use chassis PRS-639 during Saturday's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. This is a new chassis to the #2 fleet.............. Mark Martin: crew chief Lance McGrew has chosen Hendrick Motorsports Chassis No. 5-632 for Saturday's race at Daytona. This is the same chassis that Martin drove to top-10 finishes at Daytona and Talladega earlier this season. The #5 Chevy will sport the red, white and blue colors of Carquest Auto Parts this weekend at Daytona. Carquest, a longtime partner of Hendrick Motorsports, is on the hood of the #5 Chevy for eight races this season............. David Ragan: Primary Chassis RK-691 last ran the Duel at Daytona finished 20th. The backup chassis RK-717 is a brand new chassis. Jacksonville UPS employee, Russell Taylor, will serve as the green flag delivery driver for Saturday night's race in Daytona. Taylor recently celebrated 40 years of safe driving and his name will be featured on the C-Post of David Ragan's UPS Ford.................. Marcos Ambrose: The #9 RPM team has prepared chassis No. 721 for this weekend's 400-mile race. This is a brand new DEWALT Ford Fusion and has not been run previously this season................... Matt Kenseth: will run primary chassis RK-779 a brand new chassis, this weekend Kenseth will pilot the #17 Affliction Clothing Live Fast Ford.............. Kyle Busch: Chassis No. 296 is a brand new chassis that is slated to see action for the first time in Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.A new twist on the familiar Interstate Batteries paint scheme returns to the #18 Toyota for Saturday night's Coke Zero 400. The Interstate All Battery Center green-and-gold scheme will adorn Busch's #18 Toyota............... Kurt Busch and his Steve Addington-led Shell-Pennzoil "Double-Deuce" Dodge Team will be racing their "PRS-632" Penske Racing Dodge Charger at Daytona this weekend. The car debuted in Busch's 2010 Daytona qualifying race where Busch started third and finished fourth. It is the same Dodge Charger that Busch raced in February's qualifying race (started sixth and won) and Daytona 500 (started third and finished fifth). The "PRS-641" will serve as the backup car this weekend. Busch is entertaining suggestions as for the name for the "PRS-742" chassis, his Sonoma race-winning "Double-Deuce" Dodge Charger........... Paul Menard will pilot Chassis No. 338 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. This #27 Quaker State Chevy was a brand new addition to the RCR fleet for the 2011 season and was last seen on the track at Talladega Superspeedway when Menard brought home a 12th-place result after starting from the fifth position. Menard also drove this racer at DIS in February, where he turned the fourth-fastest lap during qualifying for the Duel 150's. He started on the front row for the first of the two qualifier races and finished ninth. He then started 19th in the 53rd running of the famed Daytona 500 and finished ninth, his career-best finish at Daytona.............. Kevin Harvick: will race chassis No. 343 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. Harvick has competed in this car twice so far in 2011: he led five laps before finishing 42nd when the car's engine expired at Daytona in February and scored a fifth-place finish at Talladega in April............ Jeff Burton will race chassis No. 331 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable in this weekend's Coke Zero 400. Built new for the 2011 season, this #31 Chevy first competed in the second Duel 150 qualifying race at Daytona International Speedway where Burton drove it to victory. He then raced this Caterpillar Chevrolet in the 53rd running of the Daytona 500 that ended eight laps shy of the halfway mark when the engine suddenly expired, crediting the #31 team with a 36th-place finish. Burton also drove this RCR racer to a 16th-place result at Talladega Superspeedway after starting 27th earlier this season............... Clint Bowyer: will pilot chassis No. 294 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. This Chevrolet Impala, built in 2010 specifically for restrictor-place racing, has seen action at four races over the last two seasons, never finishing outside of the top 10. This includes a trip to Talladega Superspeedway's Victory Lane last October, a fourth-place finish in the 2010 Daytona 500 and a ninth-place finish in this year's edition of the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona. Most recently, it was on track for a second-place effort in the April Talladega event where Bowyer finished a record-tying 0.002 seconds behind race winner Jimmie Johnson............. Ryan Newman This will be the first start for Chassis No. 39-664. The new chassis for the #39 Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) team was wind-tunnel tested just a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Coke Zero 400............... Juan Pablo Montoya: Team Target Crew Chief Brian Pattie has elected to bring chassis #902 to Daytona and was run three times during the 2010 season, finishing 10th at the Daytona 500 and third in both Talladega races. The Target team also used this chassis in all four restrictor plate events in 2009 with a best finish of ninth in the July race at Daytona.............. A.J. Allmendinger: The #43 RPM team has prepared chassis No. 722 for this weekend's event at Daytona International Speedway. This U.S. Air Force Ford has been run previously this year at Daytona and Talladega.................... Jimmie Johnson: will pilot chassis No. 628 at Daytona. Johnson won at Talladega Superspeeway earlier this year in this chassis. Backup chassis No. 618 crossed the finish line fourth at in this year's Bud Shootout in Daytona.................. Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Crew chief Steve Letarte will unload Hendrick Motorsports Chassis No. 88-629. Earnhardt last raced this chassis to a fourth-place finish after pushing his teammate Jimmie Johnson to the win at Talladega Superspeedway in April.......... Carl Edwards: The #99 Subway will be unloading chassis RK-677 this weekend at Daytona which last ran at Talladega, finished sixth......... Note: Not all teams list their chassis selections in their press releases.
