Driver looking for strong finish this weekend in Phoenix

(Nashville, Tenn.) April 8, 2008 - Heading into this weekend's race at Phoenix International Raceway, Brad Coleman and the No. 27 Scott Tissue Ford Fusion look to burn some rubber and the competition in the Valley of the Sun.

"I like racing at Phoenix," said Coleman. "It's a pretty flat track with good speeds. It is not as fast as Texas or Atlanta, but its fun to race out there. Plus, I know the guys have been working really hard at the shop to get the No. 27 Scott Tissue Ford Fusion ready to go. I ran well last year in my first Phoenix race and I am not planning on this weekend being any different."

Coleman has limited experience at Phoenix, which has been the theme at most tracks this year, posting a top-20 performance there in 2007 by finishing 16th in his first time out.

"It gets tricky having to figure out a new track and situation every weekend," stated Coleman. "It's all a part of being a young driver and just learning. I actually like the challenge of the whole situation. It keeps me on my toes every time I take a lap to learn more about the track with each time I cross the checkered line."

Coleman and his No. 27 Scott Tissue Ford team look to shine while in Phoenix this weekend as they compete in the Bashas' Supermarkets 200 on Saturday.
