This Week's Silverado...For the second race in a row, Burton and the No. 4 team will utilize powerhouse chassis TSM-220. Under the direction of veteran crew chief Mike Hillman Jr., this truck has led laps at both Kansas Speedway this season and in the 2012 finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway with rookie Kyle Larson behind the wheel.

Take Two...The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 will be Burton's second NCWTS start at CMS, after previously claiming his career first top 10 finish at the famed North Carolina track.

Jeb Burton on his second start at Charlotte Motor Speedway
"I'm thankful to get the chance to welcome Kangaroo Express to our No. 4 Turner Scott Motorsports team. It's been a great season so far and it's only getting better. We're bringing the same truck from Kansas Speedway so I know we'll have a competitive machine. Hopefully I can claim my first win and take Arrowhead and Kangaroo Express to victory lane."

James Buescher
No. 31 Rheem Chevrolet Silverado
Charlotte Motor Speedway - North Carolina Education Lottery 200
May 17, 2013

Kansas Recap...James Buescher came into the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway as the defending race winner and, for a while, it looked like Buescher was going to repeat as race winner. After grabbing his first pole since 2011, Buescher quickly shot off to the lead and collected valuable championship bonus points in the process. With a late-race pit stop, Buescher and the Rheem team elected to take four tires, which put him 20th in the 36-truck field. After some daring restart moves, Buescher worked his way back up to inside the top three. While dealing with lapped traffic and some close competition, Buescher fell back outside the top five to sixth, where he eventually finished. This was Buescher's first top ten of the 2013 season.

Under the Lights...After the season's second extended break in the schedule, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). The last time the No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team competed at CMS, Buescher went on to lead 10 laps and was running inside the top five before getting collected by a spinning lapped truck. The Turner Scott Motorsports team is very confident heading into CMS after a strong run at Kansas Speedway four weeks ago.

Gotta Have a Rheem...The No. 31 TSM entry will once again run the Rheem colors this weekend at CMS. Buescher and TSM hope to build off the last race's momentum and capture the team's first victory of the season. Rheem Manufacturing Company (www.rheem.com) is privately held with headquarters in Atlanta. In its 87th year of operation, the company manufactures a full line of high-quality residential and commercial heating and cooling systems; tank, tankless, solar, and heat pump water heaters; swimming pool heaters and commercial boilers throughout North America and world markets. The company's premium brands, including Raypak, Ruud and Rheem, have been recognized with countless industry and consumer awards for reliability, innovative design and high quality. Rheem, now in its seventh consecutive year as a NASCAR sponsor, is the official heating, cooling and water heating supplier to Turner Scott Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing. Rheem also sponsors RCR's No. 29 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car driven by Kevin Harvick and the No. 33 NASCAR Nationwide Series car driven by Paul Menard.

Return of Honey Badger...For the second time this season, TSM will bring Chassis TSM-214, aka "Honey Badger," to the track. During its first appearance at Rockingham Speedway, Buescher led 17 laps and was running close to the top five before being collected by a lapped truck. During 2012, "Honey Badger" recorded 4 wins, all on 1.5-mile tracks.

Watch and Listen...The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 can be seen live on Friday, May 17th on SPEED. Race coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

James Buescher on returning to Charlotte Motor Speedway
"I'm really looking forward to getting back on track this weekend in Charlotte. We had a great run in Kansas, and I hope we can build off that and use our past success on mile-and-a-half tracks to our advantage and put our Rheem Chevrolet Silverado in victory lane. It would definitely mean a lot to our team, as we'll be able to compete in front of many family and friends that will be at the track."

Miguel Paludo
No. 32 Levine Children's Hospital Chevrolet Silverado
Charlotte Motor Speedway - North Carolina Education Lottery 200
May 17, 2013

For The Kids...This weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the No. 32 gets a bit more colorful with Carolinas Healthcare System's Levine Children's Hospital on board as primary sponsor. Levine Children's Hospital's mission is to ensure excellent children's healthcare by building partnerships between caregivers and families. Just five years after opening, the hospital has grown to include more than 30 pediatric specialties and has twice received the national distinction by U.S. News & World Report as one of "America's Best Children's Hospitals."

Staffed by some of the most respected medical professionals in the world, Carolinas HealthCare System's Levine Children's Hospital leads the nation in offering a comprehensive range of specialized pediatric services, including kidney, liver and heart transplants; cardiac and cancer care; neurosurgery; rehabilitation services and the highest designated level of neonatal intensive care. In 2012, Levine Children's Hospital received national recognition from U.S. News & World Report as one of "America's Best Children's Hospitals" in six different categories, the third year in which at least one specialty has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report.

Going Home...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway is a "home game" for Paludo, who recently purchased a home in the Charlotte suburb of Mooresville. The Brazilian has competed in two previous events at CMS, earning an average start of 12th and a best finish of 14th.

This Week's Silverado...Paludo and the No. 32 Levine Children's Hospital team will once again utilize chassis TSM-216 this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. TSM-216 was a strong contender in the last two NCWTS races at Rockingham Speedway and Kansas Speedway, earning a best finish of 10th at Rockingham.

Watch and Listen...The North Carolina Education Lottery 200 can be seen live on Friday, May 17 on SPEED. Pre-race coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. EDT, and the event can also be heard live on MRN Radio, as well as SiriusXM Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap... Paludo's potentially race-winning run ended in the wall at Kansas Speedway. After starting on the front row and leading his first laps of the 2013 season, the No. 32 Duroline Brakes and Components Chevrolet was one of the trucks to beat before getting caught up in an incident on lap 35, which ended Paludo's race in the garage and relegated him to a 31st-place finish in the SFP 250.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Charlotte Motor Speedway
"I'm really proud to be running Levine Children's Hospital on our No. 32 Chevrolet this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. As a father, there is nothing more important than your child being healthy and happy, and it's great that we have one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country right nearby. Some of the other Turner Scott Motorsports drivers and I are going to be doing a visit there next week, and I can't wait to see the facility and meet the kids."

"I have been looking forward to getting to the track in Charlotte since we left Kansas Speedway; I feel like that could have been a win and it got away from us. We were probably the best we've been all season, so I feel really confident going into a similar track in the same truck we brought to the last two races. I could not be prouder of my team and the direction we're going this year. I'm ready to get to Charlotte and set it on fire."
