In addition to one of the top five purses on the NASCAR Busch Series circuit this season, "The Outback Steakhouse 300" will feature current NASCAR Busch Series points leader and NASCAR Winston Cup driver Kevin Harvick, his Winston Cup circuit-mate Kenny Wallace, defending NASCAR Busch Series champion Jeff Green, two-time 2001 NASCAR Busch Series winner Greg Biffle, Kerry Earnhardt, eldest son of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr., as well as NASCAR veterans Geoffrey Bodine, Randy LaJoie and Elton Sawyer.
