The Valley of the Sun...The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) will make its second and final trip of the 2013 season to the "Valley of the Sun" and Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) this weekend for the ServiceMaster 200. Nelson Piquet Jr. has one previous NNS start at the 1.0-mile oval, coming earlier this year when he brought home a top-15 finish.

This Week's Camaro...The No. 30 Qualcomm team will have chassis TSM-400 for Saturday afternoon's race at PIR. TSM-400 has been on the track four other times this season; with Piquet Jr. having an average finish of 13.25 with this particular chassis.

Texas Recap...Making his second career NNS start at Texas Motor Speedway last Saturday afternoon, Piquet Jr. looked to finish the last three weeks of the NNS season with a full head of steam starting in the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. Piquet Jr. and his No. 30 Qualcomm team started the weekend by qualifying 17th at the 1.5-mile oval. Piquet Jr. however was forced to start at the rear of the field after suffering damage to the right side of his car during his qualifying lap on Saturday morning. After the setback to start the race, Piquet Jr. battled all afternoon and brought the Qualcomm Chevrolet Camaro home with a 15th-place finish.

Welcome Back...For the seventh time in 2013, Turner Scott Motorsports partner Qualcomm will be the primary sponsor for Piquet Jr. and No. 30 team in this week's Service Master 200. Qualcomm Incorporated is the world leader in next-generation mobile technologies. For 25 years, Qualcomm ideas and inventions have driven the evolution of wireless communications, connecting people more closely to information, entertainment and each other. Today, Qualcomm technologies are powering the convergence of mobile communications and consumer electronics, making wireless devices and services more personal, affordable and accessible to people everywhere. For more information, please visit www.qualcomm.com.

Watch and Listen...The ServiceMaster 200 can be seen live on Saturday, November 9 on ESPN2. Race coverage will begin at 3:30 p.m. EST. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Radio, channel 90.

Nelson Piquet Jr. on his return to Phoenix:
"I am looking forward to getting back on the track and returning to Phoenix [International Raceway] this weekend. We only have two weeks left in the season and my team and I are working really hard to end the season on a good note. Phoenix is a fast one-mile oval and different from any track that we go to. I don't have much experience at Phoenix in a Nationwide car, but we have had some success there in the truck series, so hopefully we can use that to our advantage. I think if we can stay smart, find the right setup and stay out of trouble, we can have a big day and bring the Qualcomm Chevy home with a great finish."

BRANDT Chevrolet Camaro
Phoenix International Raceway | ServiceMaster 200
November 9, 2013

Heading West...This weekend, the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) returns to Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) for the final short-track race of the season. In the spring race at PIR, Allgaier started in the fifth position and ran in the top-10 all day. After completing all 200 laps of the race, Allgaier brought the BRANDT Chevy home in the third position, his second best finish of the season to date.

Seeing Double This Weekend...In addition to competing in the NNS, Allgaier will also be making his fourth-career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start this weekend at PIR. He will drive the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet SS on Sunday, November 10 in the AdvoCare 500.

This Week's Camaro...The No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet team will utilize chassis TSM-401 this weekend. Chassis TSM-401 had been race four previous times with season, never finishing worse than 12th.

In-Car Camera...This weekend the No. 31 BRANDT Chevy will carry an in-car camera providing fans with a view from inside the cockpit. This weekend's camera is sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. The ServiceMaster 200 will air live on ESPN2 on Saturday, November 9 with race coverage beginning at 3:30 p.m. EST. The race will also be broadcast on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Recapping Texas Motor Speedway...The NNS completed its second and final stop of the season at Texas Motor Speedway. The No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet finished the first practice session 18th on the chart, and fourth in final practice. After laying down a lap of 29.9514 seconds, Allgaier earned the 15th-starting spot for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge, just ahead of Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) teammates Kyle Larson and Nelson Piquet Jr. After staying in the top 20 all day at Texas, Allgaier drove the No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet Camaro home to a 19th-place finish for TSM.

Crew Chief Scott Zipadelli on Phoenix International Raceway:
"I'm ready to get back to Phoenix [International Raceway]. We had a great run there earlier in the season and Justin really likes short tracks. Qualifying in the top 10 will be really important. Track position is key at a place like Phoenix. Pit strategy will also be key because the track traditionally has long green-flag runs."

Justin Allgaier on Phoenix International Raceway:
"I always enjoy short-track racing. I'm looking forward to getting back to Phoenix [International Raceway]. I've always liked the track and we ran really well there in the spring. I need to qualify well and have a solid day to keep us in the top five in points heading into Homestead [Miami Speedway]."

Kyle Larson
No. 32 Target Chevrolet Camaro
Phoenix International Raceway | ServiceMaster 200
November 9, 2013

Fun in the Sun...The No. 32 Target team heads out west as the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) visits Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) for the second and final time this season. Kyle Larson has one previous NNS start at PIR, finishing 13th at the track in March. Larson also has one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at the track for Turner Scott Motorsports. In last fall's NCWTS race, Larson started sixth, led 43 laps and finished second in just his third series start.

Bullseye!...Target will be back on board the No. 32 Camaro for this weekend's race at PIR. Minneapolis-based Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) serves guests at 1,870 stores - 1,788 in the United States and 82 in Canada - and at Target.com. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $4 million a week. For more information about Target's commitment to corporate responsibility, visit target.com/corporateresponsibility.

This Week's Camaro...Crew chief Trent Owens and the No. 32 Target team will bring chassis TSM-323 to PIR this weekend. Larson has driven TSM-323 six times this season, earning three top fives, four top 10s and never finishing worse than 14th. Larson earned his first runner-up finish of the season using this chassis, coming up just short of the win to finish second at Bristol Motor Speedway in March.

Watch and Listen...The ServiceMaster 200 will air live on ESPN2 on Saturday, November 9 at 3:30 p.m. EST. The race will also be broadcast on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap...After a blown tire ruined his debut at Texas Motor Speedway back in April, Larson was looking for redemption in the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. After two practice sessions that left the No. 32 NTT DATA team happy with the long-run speed of their Chevrolet Camaro, Larson qualified 16th for Saturday afternoon's 200-lap race. In a race that saw just four cautions, the 21-year-old ran inside the top 10 for the majority of the event, running as high as fourth before finishing ninth.

Kyle Larson on Phoenix International Raceway:
"I really enjoy racing at Phoenix, and I know that it's one of my team's favorite tracks too. [Crew chief] Trent [Owens] ran really well here last fall with Kasey [Kahne] in the car, and I finished second in the Truck Series race, so hopefully we can continue that this year. We've had a lot of success with this chassis, so I'm excited to see what we can do during the race."
