Date Night with The Lady in Black ... Conley will log his first-career laps at The Lady in Black this week in Darlington, S.C. The Vienna, W. Va. native will run a limited schedule teaming up with crew chief Nick Harrison. The 21-year-old driver has competed throughout the open wheel ranks, including the World of Outlaws. In 2011, Conley made his K&N Pro Series debut and has since recorded one win, four pole awards, eight top-five and 10 top-10 career finishes. The RCR driver claimed his first career K&N Pro Series East victory in dominating fashion at Columbus Motor Speedway in 2012 after starting on the outside pole and leading all 150 laps.

The company is the industry's only single-source provider, with the CNC machine, drive, motors, encoders, spindle and CNC control all manufactured by Okuma.

Meet Cale ... Conley is scheduled to make two appearances Friday at Darlington Raceway. At 12:30 p.m. ET, Conley will join teammate Ty Dillon at the Team Chevy Stage located on the midway. Fans can also meet Conley at the Nationwide Series driver autograph session in the midway area in front of the Coca-Cola fan stage with fellow Series competitors from 1 to 2 p.m.

Last Time Behind the Wheel ... Conley made a strong impression in his Nationwide Series debut last month at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Vienna, W. Va. native qualified his No. 33 OKUMA Chevrolet Camaro 12th and never fell outside the top-15 taking the checkered flag in the 11th spot.

What are your thoughts heading into Darlington Raceway this week?
"I was able to go down last week with Casey Mears and the No. 13 Cup team for their test at Darlington. Getting to talk with him and ride around the track was helpful and intimidating at the same time. It seems like there's a lot of grip, everything is nice and smooth until it gets out from under you and there isn't room to recover."

What is your approach for the weekend?
"If I approach Darlington like I did Bristol, just calm and easy getting through the weekend with a learning mentality, I think we'll be good. I'm definitely more confident now than I was going into Bristol. All-in-all, I want to come out with the best finish possible while learning as much as I can. It's a heck of a track to go to for your second Nationwide race."
