WATKINS GLEN, NY. (August 10, 2003) ---Sterling Marlin and the Coors Light team ended a disappointing weekend with a blown engine on lap 2 of the Sirius at the Glen. After having to take a provisional Friday after qualifying, the team knew it would have its work cut out for them.

The Coors Light Dodge started to smoke after the first lap and Marlin brought the car to the garage. The team determined that nothing could be done to fix the car so the Coors Light team ended their trip to Watkins Glen International early.

"It hasn't been a good week for us," Marlin said. "We haven't run well all week. The guys have been working hard. We just haven't found anything. We ran well here a couple of years ago but we have struggled ever since. That's just part of it."

Ganassi teammates Scott Pruett, Casey Mears and Jamie McMurray finished 2nd, 22nd and 23rd respectively.

The GFS Marketplace 400 from Michigan International Speedway will be broadcast live on TNT television and MRN radio on August 17 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
