"Leighton Reese Performance Group is happy to announce that we are now partnered with Drinkin' Mate for the remainder of the 2009 Grand-Am Rolex Championship Season," said Leighton Reese. "I am confident that the Drinkin' Mate Pontiac GXP will provide some great marketing value in the Grand-Am Rolex Series and on SPEED TV.

"Our partnership with Drinkin' Mate came at very opportune time because it allows us to continue on in our quest to repeat as the defending GT Team and drivers' champions in Grand-Am. Drinkin Mate is a good fit for our team and a good fit for the Grand-Am Rolex Championships."

Drinkin' Mate is an effervescent tablet with all natural Wild Guava Leaf extract that reduces or eliminates the negative effects of alcohol. Drinkin' Mate tablets defend against aches, fatigue, queasy stomach, and dehydration associated with alcohol consumption.

Drinkin' Mate is one of a family of products produced by Amerilab Technologies of Plymouth Minnesota. Amerilab Technologies, Inc. is the leader in effervescent product and contract development, manufacturing and packaging of effervescent tablets and powders.

"I can give you a great testimonial from personal experience that Drinkin Mate works and works well," concluded Leighton Reese with a knowing smile. "Our great LRPG crew and our strong Pontiac GXP.R allow our drivers Paul [Edwards] and Kelly [Collins] the confidence to race without fear and Drinkin Mate allows the LRPG crew to celebrate when the race is over without the fear of a bad morning after."

The Drinkin' Mate Pontiac GXP.R of Paul Edwards and Kelly Collins is in Lexington Ohio this weekend to compete in the EMCO Gears Classic presented by KeyBank at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Round 6 of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16).
