Coleman Captures Top 10 at Gateway Finale
Practices 20th, qualifies 12th, finishes race 8th

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (October 24, 2010) - Brad Coleman blew the dust off of a two-month hiatus throughout the course of the weekend to drive the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Shore Lodge Toyota to an 8th place finish for the final NASCAR Nationwide Series race to ever be held at Gateway International Raceway.

Coleman's final race of the 2010 season was a hard fought battle on a day filled with crashes and cautions throughout. He was able to avoid spinning cars and others problems to keep the car near the Top 10 for most of the race then finished strong to bring home the 8th position.

"It felt great to be back on the track and I am grateful to Shore Lodge in McCall, ID for the opportunity and to J.D. (Gibbs) and Steve (DeSouza) for putting me in the car and trusting me with our team lead," said Coleman. "There is a lot of pressure coming in with all Kyle has done this season to put us up front and make sure I do all I can to protect the lead. I am hopeful we can work to complete the mission and win the championship. I know I couldn't be teamed with anyone better than Kyle and Jason to get it done."

The NASCAR Nationwide Series will be off next weekend before heading to Texas, Phoenix and Homestead for the final three events.
