Dark Dog Konrad Saleen qualifies 6th in GTS Class at Daytona.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.- Dark Dog Energy Drink will be hard to catch at Daytona International Speedway this weekend, as the trendy European drink's bright yellow logo speeds past on the sides of the Konrad Motorsport Saleen S7R.

The sleek yellow-liveried Saleen qualified sixth among the 14 GTS entries with a lap time of 1:52.926 around the 3.56-mile Daytona road course.

Dark Dog Energy Drink is designed to provide stimulation through Guarana and caffeine, effectiveness through five important vitamins, and refreshment through carbonic acid. The drink is popular among a diverse crowd, including athletes and club-goers who are seeking a revitalization of mind and body. Dark Dog is packaged in a bright-yellow can in the classic energy drink size of 250 ml, and is also available in three sizes of PET bottles.

Dark Dog has teamed up with Konrad Motorsport to campaign the Saleen S7R in the GTS class of the prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona. Since 1976, Konrad Motorsport has been winning championships in both the United States and Europe.

Team owner and driver Franz Konrad finished 5th in GTS class points for the 2002 season, despite not running the full season.

For this year's Rolex 24 Hours, the pilots of the Dark Dog Konrad Saleen will be team owner Konrad of Austria, Airton Dare from Brazil, France's Jean Francois Yvon, and Tony Seiler from Switzerland.
