Coors Light Dodge Salutes the Troops with Marine paint scheme

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (May 21, 2004) ---Coors Light will be highlighting their support of the troops this race season with a special Marine Corps paint scheme. Sterling Marlin, driver of the No. 40 Coors Light Dodge will display a Marine Eagle, Globe and Anchor paint scheme for four races this season starting at Lowe's Motor Speedway this Sunday.

"Coors is proud to be running a Marines paint scheme for four races this season," said Steve Saunders, Director of Event Marketing for Coors Brewing Company. "Coors has a long tradition of supporting the men and women in the armed forces. We will involve many Marines at the racetracks for well-deserved recognition from the NASCAR community. The 6,000 Coors employees and 10,000 people that distribute our beer nationally are united in our support for all the folks serving in the armed forces."

Along with the Charlotte race, the No. 40 Coors Light Dodge will also display the Marines paint scheme at Daytona, Indianapolis and Phoenix later this season.

"The United States Marine Corps is honored to see our Eagle, Globe and Anchor on the #40 Dodge this weekend. Our thanks to Coors Brewing Company and Sterling Marlin for extending this honor and recognizing the dedication and professionalism of Marines around the world," said Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Michael W. Hagee.

Sterling Marlin will race his special Marines paint scheme for the first time in the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday, May 30th. The race will be broadcast live on FOX television and PRN radio.
