OFF-ROAD FOCUS: CHAMP HUSEMAN BACK FOR MORE

OFF-ROAD FOCUS: CHAMP HUSEMAN BACK FOR MORE You’ve heard that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, it seems 2010 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Pro 4 Unlimited champ Rick Huseman subscribes to that philosophy as he heads into this weekend’s season-opener at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix, Ariz. “We’re dealing with the same truck,” he says of his Toyota Tundra short course off road racer. “We’ve made some small modifications, but nothing real major to upset the truck or anything. The truck was working awesome last year. I feel really comfortable in the truck and, being on the same tracks, I feel I’m in a good position to do the same thing. “Some of the other guys are struggling to make their trucks faster. We’re going to continue what we were doing, while they try new stuff. Hopefully that will give us an advantage.” It’s a bit easier to do the same thing as last year, to keep the same program in place, when you won 10 of 15 races and the championship. Huseman finished off of the podium only twice, and found himself often working his way through the entire field after some early-race misfortune only to win anyway. He locked up the title well before the final race at Firebird International Raceway, but won that race, too, and he’s looking forward to going to that same track this weekend to open his title defense.

Toyota NASCAR Notes & Quotes Bristol March 2011 KAHNE TAMED DARLINGTON: In Saturday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) at Darlington Raceway, Kasey Kahne earned his first NCWTS win in a Tundra. Kahne drove the Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) Tundra at the historic South Carolina track because the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) and NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) had the weekend off. The 30-year-old started second in the KBM No. 18 entry and led 95 (of 147) laps at the 1.366-mile egg-shaped oval to earn his third career NCWTS win in four career starts. In addition to Kahne, three other Tundra drivers earned top-10s in Saturday night’s race — Todd Bodine (third), Timothy Peters (sixth) and David Starr (10th). BREAK OUT THE BROOM: Camry driver Kyle Busch made NASCAR history last August at Bristol Motor Speedway when he became the first driver to sweep all three races — NCWTS, NNS and NSCS — at one race track in a single weekend. Busch has more NSCS victories at Bristol (four) than at any other track, as well as two NNS wins and three NCWTS victories at the half-mile Tennessee oval. SHORT TRACK SUCCESS: The races at Bristol Motor Speedway mark the first short track event of the 2011 season for NSCS and NNS teams. Last year, Camry drivers earned three (of four) wins at half-mile short tracks with Denny Hamlin visiting victory lane in both races at Virginia’s Martinsville Speedway and his Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) teammate Busch earning the win at Bristol Motor Speedway in the summer. TENNESSEE TIES: Two Toyota team members call Tennessee home.
