Coleman Ready to Rock at Nashville
Race in Baker Curb's Hometown Excites Driver

(Nashville, Tenn.) March 18, 2008 - After many weekends on the road in various cities throughout the U.S., the No. 27 COTTONELLE Baker Curb Racing team is finally coming home. This weekend's Pepsi 300 in Nashville, Tenn. marks a homecoming for the team whose shop is located in Music City, Tenn.

For Brad Coleman, the No. 27 COTTONELLE Ford Fusion driver, it also marks a homecoming as well. His first Nationwide Series race was scheduled for the week he graduated high school at the Nashville Superspeedway in 2005.

"I'll never forget that week," claimed Coleman. "One minute I was taking an exam and the next thing I knew, my fellow students were wishing me good luck in my first NASCAR race. It was an especially memorable time in Nashville."

Not only does Coleman have significant experience at the track, he has also seen some success in past races here and hopes it continues over into this weekend. Plus, being an avid guitarist, the prized Nashville trophy guitar is at the top of his list.

"I love being in Nashville," smiled Coleman. "First and foremost, the track is just amazing. I've run really well there before and I'm confident in my performance going into this weekend. And, Nashville is a great city. Being that I'm a guitar man and given the chance to hear great live music and win that prize Sam Bass guitar, is something I look forward to when we come here. Loud music and loud cars - I don't think you could ask for a better combination!"

With second and third place finishes at Nashville in the 2006 ARCA ReMax Series and a top-20 performance in the Nationwide Series in 2007, Coleman's time in Nashville thus far has only created sweet music.
