Rolling the Dice in Vegas: This weekend's 300-mile event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will mark McClure's 229th-career Nationwide Series start and his ninth at the 1.5-mile speedway. In eight starts, the 35-year-old driver has completed 86% of the total laps attempted and he has an average start of 30.2 and an average finish of 25. One year ago the team was relegated to a 40th-place finish after the No. 14 Camry's engine expired on lap two of the 200-lap event.

Chassis No. 677: Crew Chief Wes Ward has selected chassis No. 677 for this weekend's race at LVMS. This chassis was last used by McClure's teammate, Jeff Green, in the 2013 season-finale at Homestead Miami Speedway. Green finished 20th after starting the 200-lap event from the 29th position.

Eric McClure Quotes:

"Last season at Las Vegas was difficult with the early engine failure, but I like the track and look forward to the weekend. It's early in the season and, after Daytona, we are in points mode. Phoenix was positive in that regard and we are hopeful for more the same this week."

Tune-In: Saturday's 300-mile race from Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be televised live on ESPN 2 beginning at 4:00pm (ET). Sirius Channel 90 and Performance Racing Network (PRN) will also broadcast the event live on Saturday, March 8.
