DAYTONA BEACH, FL (February 15, 2007) - 19 year-old Brad Coleman earned the 27th starting spot in tomorrow's Camping World 300 at Daytona International Speedway.

Coleman said the car was set up and ready to run the race. "At Daytona, you want to set the car up to run well in the draft because that is where you race. While we had a good qualifying effort, it is the speed the car will produce in the draft tomorrow that counts. I think we'll be just fine."

The young star said it has been a long off season and he is ready to get to racing.

"I am ready for the green flag to drop at Daytona so the season can get underway," said Coleman. "The team has been working non-stop to get the cars ready for the season, and it is obvious with our performance in preseason that the No. 27 Cottonelle/Kroger Ford Fusion will be a force to contend with this year."

His optimism for the 2008 season is mostly rooted in Coleman's successful 2007 season with Joe Gibbs Racing. In just 17 races last season, he orchestrated 3 top-5, 5 top-10, 7 top -15 and 10 top-20 finishes in the Carino's Italian Grill Chevrolet.
