No. 40 TEAM FACTS:

* Blue Collar TV: Sterling Marlin went to Atlanta this week to film a sketch for the television show on the WB Network Blue Collar TV. Marlin joined Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Heath Hyohe for a NASCAR themed skit that will air later this season.

* Double Duty: Marlin will be running the Busch Series race at Kentucky Speedway this weekend. He will be piloting the No. 40 for FitzBradshaw Racing.

* Chassis: The Coors Light team will race chassis #401 this weekend at Michigan. This is the same car that Marlin piloted to a 16th-place finish last weekend at Pocono. Earlier this season this car brought home 41st, fifth, 35th and 15th-place finishes in Darlington, Texas, Las Vegas and Fontana, respectively.

* NASCAR NEXTEL Cup points standings: Marlin is currently 22nd in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup points standings after finishing 16th at Pocono. He is 255 points out of the Chase for the NEXTEL Cup.

STERLING MARLIN QUOTES:

"I really like Michigan, it is one of my favorite tracks. You can get two and three wide here so passing is never a problem. I have had some success here and I am hoping this is where I can get the Coors Light Dodge back in the points race. We have had some bad luck the last few weeks but we are starting to turn it around and this week at Michigan shold be a good one for us."
