Turner Motorsports and long-time NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) sponsor, Great Clips welcome’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) star Ryan Newman aboard the No.30 Great Clips Chevrolet Impala for the O’Reilly Auto Part Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway. This will mark the NASCAR Nationwide Series’ second of two trips to the Lone Star State on the 1.5-mile oval. Newman will be making his second NNS start of the 2012 season, with the first coming at Phoenix International Raceway also with Turner Motorsports. Newman and the Turner Motorsports team posted a stellar fourth place finish in that start. This will mark Newman’s third career NNS series starts at Texas Motor Speedway. Four Great Clips vehicles span the three-race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway… Great Clips, the longest-running sponsor in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS), will have a HUGE presence at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend with at least one Great Clips Chevrolet competing in all three NASCAR races at the 1.5-mile track. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series No. 31 Great Clips Chevrolet Silverado – James Buescher NASCAR Nationwide Series No. 38 Great Clips Chevrolet Impala – Brad Sweet No. 30 Great Clips Chevrolet Impala – Ryan Newman NASCAR Sprint Cup Series No. 5 Great Clips/Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet Impala – Kasey Kahne (Hendrick Motorsports) Previous Race Recap…James Buescher was behind the wheel of the No.30 Great Clips Chevy at Kansas Speedway when a disappointing qualifying effort left the Turner Motorsports team clawing their way up to contention. While running fourth on the restart on lap 141, Buescher radioed to the crew “I think we are blowing up.” Buescher would eventually retire to the garage and from the event with a disappointing 28th place finish. This Week’s Impala… The No.30 Great Clips team will bring chassis TMS-332 to Texas Motor Speedway for this Saturday evenings race. TMS-332 was a brand new chassis for Turner Motorsports heading into the Atlanta race Labor Day weekend. The second race on this chassis resulted in a top-10 finishing position for Buescher at Charlotte Motor Speedway just a couple weeks ago. Up Next… The Great Clips 200 at Phoenix International Raceway… Following their big weekend in Texas, Great Clips will again have center stage as the NNS heads to Phoenix International Raceway for the Great Clips 200. Don’t miss the pre-race ceremony in which one of three lucky winners will drive away in their own brand new Chevrolet Camaro. Ryan Newman on this weekend’s NNS race at Texas: “I’m excited that I got a call from Steve Turner and Turner Motorsports giving me another opportunity to get back behind the wheel of their No.30 Great Clips Chevy Impala this coming weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. They have a great group of people over there so anytime I am able to run one of their cars, I jump on the opportunity. Last time I ran their car we had a solid top-five finish at Phoenix. This is also a big weekend for Great Clips having four vehicles in the three races spanning the Texas race weekend and I’m happy to be a part if it. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can learn to help me on Sunday but also try to deliver these guys another win in the process.”
