Martinsville Stats ... Sunday's race marks Harvick's 24th-career Sprint Cup Series start at the Virginia-based facility. Since 2001, the 37-year-old driver has collected one win (April 2011), one pole award (April 2010), three top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. Harvick holds an average starting position of 13.3 coupled with a 16.7 average finishing position, has completed 97.4 percent (11,236 of 11,534) of laps contested and is credited with 363 laps led.

Ride Along with Harvick ... Want to experience a lap around the track with Harvick? The King of Beers has launched the Budweiser 360° Ride-Along Experience to allow adult fans to do just that. The "surround video" technology gives race fans a 360-degree look at a lap around the track inside the cockpit of the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet with Harvick. While Budweiser's driver controls the steering wheel, fans have the ability to control their view with the unique experience. The Budweiser 360° Ride-Along Experience is viewable on desktop and laptop computers and can be accessed at www.Budweiser.com.

Prohibition Ends at Last ... On Sunday, Anheuser-Busch and its family of wholesalers will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. The Cullen-Harrison Act took effect on April 7, 1933, legalizing the sale of 3.2 percent alcohol by volume beer in the District of Columbia and the 20 states in which state laws did not prohibit its sale. As the clock atop the brew house showed one minute past midnight on April 7, 1933, sirens and steam whistles sounded, the large wooden doors of the brewery's Bevo bottling plant opened to the cheers of the thirsty, and 55 trucks laden with America's favorite brew rolled out into the night, delivering the first cases of post-Prohibition Budweiser to the masses. Though the national repeal of Prohibition for all forms of alcohol did not become finalized until December 5, April 7 marks the most significant anniversary in the American beer industry.

Budweiser Clydesdales Celebrated ... While the King of Beers honors the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, they also celebrate another major milestone - the 80th anniversary of the Clydesdales association with Anheuser-Busch. The Budweiser Clydesdales have been an integral part of Anheuser-Busch's heritage since April 7, 1933, when August A. Busch Jr. and Adolphus Busch presented their father with two six-horse hitches of champion Clydesdales in celebration of the repeal of Prohibition. The Clydesdales' strength and majesty symbolize Budweiser quality and team spirit. This week Warm Springs Ranch, Anheuser-Busch's state-of-the-art Clydesdale breeding farm opened for public tours in Boonville, Mo. The ranch remains open until October 31 and tour spots can be reserved through www.warmspringsranch.com.

2012 Race Rewind ... Harvick and the No. 29 Budweiser team started second in this event last season, battled handling issues for the majority of the event and ultimately finished 19th.

KEVIN HARVICK QUOTES:
What type of mentality must a driver have to be successful at short-track racing?
"It's a balance between being patient and making the right moves. You can get lapped pretty quickly if your car is off. You want to take care of your race car, but you want to take advantage of the opportunities when you get them."

Talk about the importance of brake conservation at Martinsville Speedway.
"Braking is obviously going to be something that you look at when going to Martinsville (Speedway), but I think now the brakes and the rotors and everything are so good that the issue you have now is the tires. The brakes will basically melt the bead of the tire because they're so hot, so you have to concentrate on not only the cooling of the brakes, but also the cooling of the tires."
