Coors Going Camouflage: Coors Light(R) and Coors(R) have partnered in 2006 to target their hunting consumers by leveraging Bill Jordan's Advantage(R) Max-4; and Advantage Max-4; patterns on product packaging and point of sale items. Look for these items to feature the patterns in a store near you: Coors Light 6-pack 16 oz. cans, Coors Light Big 18, and Coors 6-pack 16 oz cans. To further leverage the unique camouflage can, Coors Light will take the packaging to the track! The Coors Light No.40 car will be wrapped in the same pattern as the can for this weekend's race at Talladega Superspeedway. NASCAR fans-be sure to pick up a case of Coors/Coors Light Camouflage Cans to complete your racing experience.

Restrictor Plate Racing: This will be David Stremme's fourth restrictor-plate race of the season. His highest finish this season in a restrictor-plate race is 16th and his highest starting spot is third, both at the July Daytona race. He has six restrictor-plate racing starts in the Busch Series. His average starting position is 23rd and his average finish is 22nd.

Looking Toward Talladega: This will be Stremme's second start in a NEXTEL Cup car at Talladega Superspeedway. In the spring he started 17th but was caught up in a multi-car incident on lap nine and forced to the garage for repairs. When the 188-lap event was complete he was credited with a 34th-place finish.

Autograph Seekers Alert: Stremme and teammate Reed Sorenson will be signing autographs next Thurs., Oct. 12 from 10-11:30 am at Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates' Concord, N.C. location. Wristbands are required and can be picked up at the gift shop or can be reserved by calling 866.888.6388.

Guests will also get some time to chat with Becky Sorenson, mother of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup rookie Reed Sorenson. Limited seating is available, so please call 1.866.888.6388 to make your reservation.
