For Immediate Release



Joy Mining Machinery Partners with Two-Time World of Outlaws Late Model Champ Josh Richards and Kyle Busch Motorsports



Cornelius, N.C. (May 17, 2011) - Rising Star Management Group is pleased to announce a partnership between Joy Mining Machinery, Josh Richards and Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) for select NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races for the 2011 season. Entering the sport with the reigning NCWTS owners' champions, Joy Mining Machinery is excited to have 2009 and 2010 World of Outlaws Late Model Series (WoO LMS) champion Richards at the helm of their Joy Mining Machinery Toyota Tundra. Adding another esteemed brand to their already impressive list of sponsors, KBM is looking forward to partnering with Joy Mining Machinery in their highly successful NCWTS program.

"We are honored that Josh Richards and Joy Mining Machinery have chosen to partner with Kyle Busch Motorsports for their first endeavor into NASCAR. Knowing that an up-and-coming driver and a highly successful global company trust in KBM to assist in their transition to NASCAR reinforces the fact that in just a short period of time we have established ourselves as one of the most respected teams in the sport. We look forward to providing Josh Richards and Joy Mining Machinery with all the tools necessary to develop from NASCAR rookies into household names," stated team owner Kyle Busch.


Slated to compete in select NCWTS events throughout the remainder of the 2011 season, 23-year-old Richards will make his debut in NASCAR's Truck Series at Kentucky Speedway in a KBM Toyota Tundra on Thursday, July 7.

A former dirt track racer himself and record holder for most wins as a crew chief in NCWTS history, KBM general manager Rick Ren noted, "Kyle Busch Motorsports is in this business to win races and championships, so we're excited to be adding a young driver in Josh Richards who has already proven he can do that. The biggest thing I took from my conversations with Josh is that he has the heart of a champion. He is determined to do whatever it takes to be successful. That is something that you can't teach somebody, it has to come from within. Now, it is our job to teach Josh how to parlay his success on dirt tracks into a successful career on pavement. We have an experienced staff in place that will provide him with all the resources and knowledge necessary to make that transition go as smooth as possible. I'm very confident that Josh will not only excel in this series but experience continued success as he climbs the ladder in NASCAR."

Representing a brand that fuels an industry essential to his home state of West Virginia, Richards is excited about launching the Joy Mining Machinery brand into NASCAR while driving for one of the most respected names in the garage.

"I couldn't be happier with this opportunity with Joy Mining Machinery and Kyle Busch Motorsports. The partnership with Joy Mining Machinery and KBM has great potential both on and off the track, and getting the chance to enter NASCAR with one of the best teams in the sport is a dream come true. KBM's mission to win matches the approach I have when it comes to racing, and whether it's on dirt or pavement, that mentality is the same," said Richards, "I'm really looking forward to getting in a KBM Toyota Tundra at our first race under the Joy Mining Machinery banner at Kentucky Speedway in July."

Joy Mining Machinery's Vice President Americas, Keith Richardson, echoes the excitement of both Richards and KBM, "Joy Mining Machinery is proud to partner with driver Josh Richards and Kyle Bush Motorsports to participate in the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. There has always been a strong connection between the men and women who work in the mining industry and racing, and none stronger than with NASCAR. We also believe there is a natural fit between a race team's drive to win and our employees' drive to be the very best mining equipment supplier in the world."

Richards will continue to race the full season in the prestigious WoO LMS in an effort to win an unprecedented third consecutive championship, while at the same time contending as part of KBM's drive to win the first ever back-to-back championship in the NCWTS.

Kyle Busch wins the Bully Hill Vineyards 200 at Nashville Superspeedway

April 22, 2011

Courtesy of the Sporting News
Lee Montgomery

LEBANON, Tenn. — Kyle Busch had to work a little harder than he expected, but he still scored a dominant victory in the Bully Hill Vineyards 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck race Friday night at Nashville Superspeedway.

Ron Hornaday Jr. made things interesting, passing Busch shortly after a restart with eight laps remaining. After another caution, though, Busch returned the favor, slipping under Hornaday in Turn 3 with two laps to go to complete a pole/victory sweep for the second year in a row at Nashville.

“I felt like we had a dominant truck,” Busch said. “There with about 10 to go, the race really got started and got really interesting.”

Busch led to the green on a restart with nine laps to go, but Hornaday made a bold, sneaky move to get the top spot.

“Hornaday got a good restart and put enough drag on my spoiler that he kind of slowed me down on the frontstretch and stayed alongside me,” Busch said. “I cleared him through (Turns) 1 and 2 and pulled up in front of him, but he had a little bit of momentum on me and pulled back to my inside down the backstretch and made a bold move driving it so far into the corner.”

Hornaday’s truck slid a little through Turn 3, and he and Busch moved up the track, with Hornaday grabbing the lead.

The yellow waved again, giving Busch a chance to turn the tables.

“There on the last restart, I did the same thing,” Busch said. “Luckily we had that opportunity and got back to him and was able to win the thing. It would’ve really been a shame if we weren’t able to win this thing.”

In the process, Busch led his 20,000th lap across the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and truck series. In two truck races at Nashville, Busch has two wins, two poles and 271 of 300 laps led. The victory was Busch’s second of the season and 26th in the truck series.

“Kyle had the dominant truck all day, and he had clean air,” Hornaday said. “I had to wear my stuff out trying to stay with him. That restart, that’s the only opportunity I had to run with him. I just gave a show for the fans. That’s all I could do.”

With shot tires, Hornaday was also passed for position by rookie Nelson Piquet Jr. and Timothy Peters, who finished second and third, respectively.

“I drove it too hard and wore the tires off,” Hornaday said.

Hornaday was fourth, followed by James Buescher, Matt Crafton, Johnny Sauter, David Starr, Craig Goess and Parker Kligerman.

Busch goes for the Nashville sweep in Saturday’s Nashville 300 Nationwide Series race.

SPEED MARKS 200TH NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES RACE FRIDAY LIVE FROM NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY

UNLIKELY ONAIR CREW OF "MISFITS" STILL GOING AFTER EIGHT YEARS TOGETHER; CELEBRATES MILESTONE FRIDAY AT 8 P.M. ET

Ray Dunlap: "We had a new playbyplay guy, a new producer, a new pit producer it was a train wreck …I was not sure there was going to be a race number four for any of our team."

Rick Allen: "Somehow we all came together when the lights went on …

Who would have thought that a network featuring a NASCAR newcomer in the playbyplay seat and arguably the most funloving crew of cutups in the NASCAR garage would ever pull off 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races?

As unlikely as it may have seemed eightandahalf years ago, SPEED has done just that …and does it like a welloiled machine.

SPEED celebrates its 200th NASCAR Camping Truck Series race broadcast Friday, April 22 at Nashville Superspeedway (live at 8 p.m. ET; NCWTS Setup with Krista Voda at 7:30 p.m. ET). The network, the exclusive television home of the Truck Series, took the reins for the first time in February 2003 at Daytona International Speedway and has been at the helm ever since.

When SPEED arrived on the scene at Daytona, Rick Allen called the action alongside former sports car driver Dorsey Schroeder and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship crew chief Barry Dodson, with reporter Ray Dunlap and former NASCAR driver Phil Parsons reporting from pit road. That cast has remained largely intact over the years, now consisting of Allen and Parsons alongside NASCAR team owner/driver Michael Waltrip in the booth, with Dunlap and NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler patrolling the pits and Krista Voda hosting NCWTS Setup, the series’ popular prerace show.

While a couple of faces have changed over the years, the crew continues to approach the 25 broadcasts each season with a lighthearted and funloving tone. So, what has kept this "crack team" together for 200 races?

"The biggest reason this team has been together for so long and not killed each other is because we respect the hard work each member of this team puts forth," said Allen, formerly the public address announcer for University of Nebraska football and basketball games, as well as a track announcer at Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb. "Yes, we have fun because we genuinely like each other, but when the cameras are on, we know our places and what each brings to the show."

"The fans always say they love our broadcast crew because we have so much fun," said Dunlap, a Truck Series pit reporter since 2001. "It is an honor to know that this team has done 200 events on SPEED. We get a lot of support from management and a lot of room to be creative."

Despite the shiny, finished product beamed into living rooms on race day, the early going wasn’t always glitz and glamour for the SPEED onair team. There were some challenges to overcome along the way, not the least of which was a "quarterback" who had never before looked into a television camera or worked in NASCAR, much less called a race on the sport’s biggest stage.

"My biggest challenge was learning how television behind the scenes worked," recalled Allen, a threetime AllAmerican decathlete at the University of Nebraska. "I had never been on television before the first race in Daytona. The rest of the team worked with me to help speed up my racing knowledge while I was trying to become more fluent with my transitions."

Dunlap, the "class clown" of the group, treated Allen as the new kid on the block and cut him no slack, treating him in a manner somewhat reminiscent of a fraternity pledge, minus the keg stands and physical torture.

"Phil and I had already been working together for a few years at ESPN on this series already when it came to SPEED, so we knew each other’s quirks," Dunlap stated. "But Rick was brand new to motorsports TV and he was so green, he made Kermit the Frog look pale. We gave him a rough time right from the very first show. He took the harassment really well and we all began to build a great friendship immediately."

Growing pains are inevitable with a new order in any business, but throw in unpredictable racing at high speeds, onair talent from divergent backgrounds and a slew of in yourface live TV cameras to boot, and those onthefly adjustments amplify tenfold. To say it wasn’t seamless chemistry from lap one at Daytona would be a serious understatement …perhaps a downright lie.

"It is always hard to do the first show of the season at such a big event like Daytona," Dunlap explained. "For us, as a brand new team, it was incredibly disjointed those first three or four shows. We had a new playbyplay guy, a new producer, a new pit producer – it was a train wreck. However, I think we got it together really well by race number four. For a few weeks, I was not sure there was going to be a race number four for any of our team."

"Our backgrounds were very different," Allen recalled. "Mine was from college athletics, Barry was an experienced crew chief, Dorsey came from road racing, Phil was the driver and Ray was the guy that hung around long enough until someone finally gave him a job. Somehow we all came together when the lights went on and did the best we could. Each show got better as we got to know each other better."

The current roster of Voda as host of NCWTS Setup, Allen, Parsons and Waltrip in the booth and Dunlap on pit road (alongside Adam Alexander at the time, who now hosts SPEED Center Sunday nights on SPEED) materialized in 2006. Sadler joined the group in 2011.

"When we got to our current lineup, that’s when the show really started meshing," Parsons said. "We had continuity and that pays dividends today. Michael, Rick and I know each other like the back of our hands and Rick is one of my best friends. What we do isn’t forced – we truly care deeply about the sport and the Truck Series and really have a great time. Hopefully, some of that comes across to the folks at home and they learn something about the series while being entertained."

Chuck Wicks to perform free post race concert for Nashville Superspeedway race fans on Saturday, April 23, 2011

LEBANON, Tenn. – Nashville To You recording artist Chuck Wicks will play a live postrace concert immediately following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, April 23, 2011. The race is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. The concert is free to all April 23 race ticket holders.

Wicks hails from the small town of Smyrna, Del., and getting to where he is today hasn’t come easily. Although he took the country music format by storm in 2008 with his Top 5 debut single, "Stealing Cinderella," and his Top 15 followup hit, "All I Ever Wanted," he continues to work hard to develop his craft.

He spent several years paying his dues by parking cars and writing songs, while apprenticing with some of country music’s top songwriters. His hard work eventually paid off, as he began to tour relentlessly, including the entire 2008 Brad Paisley Tour. In 2009, his appearance on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars earned him even more national recognition.

Wicks just completed a new project to be released this summer, which includes his song "Hold That Thought." The video for "Hold That Thought" spent 8 weeks in the Top 10 on Great American Country’s Top 20 Countdown, including 2 weeks at No. 2. His current single, "Old School," is receiving positive feedback among country music fans.

NASCAR returns to Nashville Superspeedway in 2011 with two NASCAR Camping World Truck SeriesNASCAR Nationwide Series doubleheaders on April 2223 and July 2223. For more information, call 1866RACETIX or visit NashvilleSuperspeedway.com.

NASCAR drivers Reed Sorenson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Travis Kvapil, joined by Bucky Covington, meet and greet with fans at Nashville Superspeedway

LEBANON, Tenn. – Just more than three weeks before the cars take to the track for the first of two NASCAR doubleheader weekends at Nashville Superspeedway, a handful of drivers and a musician made a visit to the track.

NASCAR drivers Reed Sorenson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Travis Kvapil were joined by musician Bucky Covington, of American Idol fame, to meet and greet fans at Nashville Superspeedway on Tuesday. They joined 600 Nashville Superspeedway season ticket holders, who were rewarded with free Richard Petty Driving Experience laps around the 1.33mile concrete track. The event, called the "Season Ticket Holder Test Session," was presented by Pizza Hut.

Visit the Nashville Superspeedway Facebook page to see more images from the day.

After lunch with media and sponsors, Sorenson, Stenhouse and Kvapil got behind the wheel to give media, sponsors and fans fastpaced rides around the track.

"This track obviously has some significance for me, as the site of my first NASCAR Nationwide Series win," said Reed Sorenson, driver of the No. 32 Dollar General Chevrolet. "It was great to be able to share this experience with race fans at the track."

Buck and Lynn Hickman, from Memphis, Tenn., bought season tickets for the first time this year. "This has been an awesome experience," said Buck Hickman. "No other track has offered us an opportunity like this, that’s for sure."

Gary and Sheila Hunter, from Bruceton, Tenn., drove 2.5 hours to attend the festivities. "It was definitely worth the drive," said Gary Hunter. "We’ve held season tickets since the track opened. We had an incredible time."

The drivers were also in town to visit Nashville media outlets early Tuesday morning to promote the new, reduced ticket prices for Nashville Superspeedway events in 2011. Tickets for NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Nashville on April 23 start at just $30, while tickets for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on April 22 start at $25.
