(Indianapolis, Ind.) July 28, 2008 - Supported by 27 local young fans, Brad Coleman and the No. 27 Huggies / Kroger Ford Fusion looked to make their own mark at the historic O'Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis.

Qualifying in the 39th position, Coleman quickly moved through the field moving up seven spots in the first seven laps. While continuing to move through the field, the No. 27 Huggies / Kroger Ford was tagged by the 9 car, piloted by Chase Miller, which caused damaged to the front right of the car.

Sporting the third unique paint scheme of the season honoring 27 children and families at the nearby Riley Hospital for Children, Coleman wanted to bring home a strong finish for these amazing fans.

“I want to dedicate this finish to the amazing children I met on Friday at the Riley Hospital for Children,” said Coleman. “We had our toughest qualifying spot of the year but the team and I gave it all we could to produce a respectable result. Its now time to shift focus and look towards the upcoming road course races at Montreal and Watkins Glen.”

Finishing in the 23rd spot, the Huggies / Kroger team brought home another top-25 place finish on the season.

The team will be back in action on Saturday with international flair as they head to the north when they compete at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada.
