Coughlin's Slammers Ultimate Milk Chevy Finishes Close Second at Vegas

LAS VEGAS, April 15, 2007 -- Bravo!  Brands Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BRVO):
One small glitch in the Pro Stock  championship round Sunday put a roadblock in
Jeg Coughlin's run to the  SummitRacing.com Nationals winner's circle.
This was the first  final round for Coughlin in his first season driving the
Slammers Ultimate Milk  Chevy Cobalt.  And he stamped himself as the driver to
beat by claiming the  low qualifying position on Friday and holding it
through qualifying, earning his  11th career No. 1 and second in a row. His
consistent qualifying runs brought  recognition -- and $1500 --.to his crew via NHRA's
Full Throttle Pit Crew  award.
In the title round, Coughlin left the starting line first  against Greg
Anderson (.018 second to .030) but Anderson got the win light with  a run of 6.724
seconds at 205.29 to Coughlin's 6.758 at 204.45  mph.

The glitch was a miniscule moment, "maybe close to a tenth of a second," said Coughlin. "That's the way things are out here where we are measuring in thousandths of a second and when everything isn't at 100 percent, you are at risk. That was all it took to take us out of the ball game. We really thought we'd make a strong run."

Coughlin  eliminated Max Naylor (6.754 to 6.815), Jim Yates (6.764 to a foul)
and Allen  Johnson (6.740 to a foul) before the finals.
Coughlin remained  fourth in points but now trails teammate Dave Connolly by
14 points,  329-315.
"We had just one heck of a weekend," said Coughlin.   "We came in here and
ran extremely well and ran right up front.  I felt  great behind the wheel and
it showed.  We performed extremely well in all  four rounds.  I think
everybody in the whole Cagnazzi Racing organization  deserves a pat on the back.  We
want to keep it going.  We have lot of  races to go."

The next one is at Atlanta, April 27-29.
