Concord, N.C. (March 18, 2008) - Colin Braun will be behind the wheel of the No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway; the second-career Nationwide Series start for the 19-year-old Craftsman Truck Series regular. Braunís Nationwide Series debut came last season at Memphis Motorsports Park.

ďIím very excited to get a chance to drive the No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion at Nashville,Ē said Braun. ďItís going to be quite a lot of fun for me. Iíve never raced on a concrete race track before so Iím excited about getting a chance to do that and Iím definitely excited about getting the chance to drive in the Nationwide Series, itíll be a blast.Ē

Nashville will be the first of two Nationwide Series races on Braunís schedule this season; the second coming in April in Mexico City.

ďColin is a talented young driver,Ē said crew chief Eddie Pardue.

ďHeís proven he can run well on road courses. This will be his first time on a concrete track and only his second time in a Nationwide Series car. Iím sure itíll take a little adjusting but heís a smart kid and I think heíll do well. Heís done a good job in the Truck Series this year. From what Iíve seen and heard he understands the mechanics and he gives good feedback so as a crew chief thatís a good combination to have in your driver.Ē

In three Craftsman Truck Series starts this season, Braun has three top-10 starting positions and one top-10 finish.
