BRYAN CLAUSON TO PILOT THE NO. 40 TARGET/ GUITAR HERO® WORLD TOUR DODGE AT ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

CONCORD, N.C. (October 20, 2008) --The #1 best-selling video game, Guitar Hero®, returns to the track at Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) as primary sponsor of Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates' No. 40 Dodge driven by 19-year-old Bryan Clauson.

Clauson was scheduled to make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) debut at Lowe's Motor Speedway but qualifying was washed out and the No. 40 car was unable to make a qualifying run.

Notes of Interest:

CLAUSON IN CUP: Bryan Clauson will be attempting his debut in the Sprint Cup Series at AMS in the No. 40 Target/Guitar Hero World Tour Dodge. Clauson--a 19-year-old from Noblesville, Ind.--has competed in the 24 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) races throughout this 2008 season, driving the No.40 Fastenal Dodge. To-date, the teen racer has collected one pole, one top-five and two top-10 finishes.

Bryan Clauson, CGRFS Driver:

"It was a little frustrating to have qualifying rained out in Charlotte. Our crew worked so hard in getting this car ready and I thought they did a great job. It was disappointing to not get on the track and see what we had. I feel like we would have been pretty solid. I can't wait to get the No. 40 Target/ Guitar Hero World Tour Dodge into the race. I am confident that we will be able to get a really good run in."
