Daytona Beach, Fla. (Jan. 24, 2006) - Coca-Cola, the official soft drink of NASCAR, will sponsor up and coming driver young Matt Martin for the 2006 racing season. After a successful year of racing against adults in the FASCAR Pro Truck Series in 2005, for 2006 Matt will compete in a limited schedule in the ASA Late Model Southern Series, as well as running in the FASCAR Pro Truck and Sportsman Series.

Throughout the season the 14-year-old driver from Daytona Beach, Fla. will pilot both the No. 66 Ford F-150 and his Ford Taurus sponsored by Coca-Cola , Ford Motor Company and Mark Martin Ford Mercury.

Despite racing against drivers 10 to 20 years older, Martin's 2005 season got off to a great start. He won a FASCAR Truck Series event at New Smyrna Speedway on Jan. 8. Martin was a threat to win each weekend he piloted his No. 66 Ford F-150, and posted his second victory at New Smyrna in September.

The move to a limited schedule in the ASA Late model Series is the latest step up in competition for the son of NASCAR legend Mark Martin. Matt's career began in Quarter Midgets when he just was seven years old, and his racing experience also includes Bandoleros, Legend Cars, the Fastruck Series and the FASCAR Pro Truck Series.

In 2003 Matt was signed to a driver development contract with the Ford Motor Company, making him the youngest member of the Ford racing family.

Associate sponsors include Boll'e Sunglasses, JR's Garage, Sam Bass Gallery, AERO Wheels, R&E Racing Electronics, Afco Racing Products, Mac Tools, Quarter Master, Simpson Racing Products and Schoenfield Headers.
