Connolly's Career Best Puts Him Eighth in Gatornationals Field

GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 17, 2007 -- Bravo! Brands Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BRVO): Dave Connolly, like his Slammers Ultimate Milk teammate Jeg Coughlin, went on the quickest and fastest Pro Stock ride of his career Saturday, but that was an afterthought because he was disappointed he wasn't able to take advantage of ideal conditions Saturday as qualifying concluded for Sunday's ACDelco Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway.

Connolly, at the controls of the TORCO/Slammers Ultimate  Milk Chevy Cobalt,
was No. 8 with his 6.600-second, 209.72-mph performance in  the day's first
run.  He came back with a 6.620 in the last session. He  races Allen Johnson
(No. 9, 6.602 at 208.42 mph) in the opening  round.

"We showed a lot of promise," Connolly said, "but we weren't happy with the way we ran. We'll do everything we can to change things for tomorrow's eliminations. Considering some of the top cars didn't qualify, we are happy to be racing . . . and we get lane choice.

"Overall,  we have room for improvement, but I think we have a good
opportunity to go  rounds Sunday."
