Joe Gibbs Racing Rookie Brings Successful Groove to Motown

Charlotte, NC (August 14, 2007) -- After two impressive Top 10 runs on tracks he had never seen before, Montreal and Watkins Glen, 19 year-old Brad Coleman is finally headed to familiar territory at Michigan International Speedway. The NASCAR Busch Series rookie experienced Top 5 finishes in both of his 2006 ARCA races at MIS for Brewco Motorsports.

"I love Michigan and am ready to navigate that great track again," said Coleman. "It will be quite an experience coming off the tight and technical turns of Montreal and Watkins Glen to the wide open, high speed banks of MIS. Our No. 18 Carino's Italian Grill team is looking forward to being back on the ovals and we could not pick a better one to start on than Michigan."

Coleman's remarkable runs at Montreal and Watkins Glen are not to be overlooked. Besides being the youngest driver on the track in both races, he was one of only three drivers in the NASCAR Busch Series to finish in the Top 10 in both races. The other two were winner Kevin Harvick and his RCR teammate Jeff Burton.

In just 12 races for JGR in 2007, the impressive youngster has posted three Top 5's, five Top 10's and seven Top 20's along with winning the Pole at Talladega.
