Sterling Marlin to Drive SABCO's #40 Coors Light Winston Cup Car

5 October 1997

CONCORD, NC - It was one of the worst kept secrets in the NASCAR
Winston Cup garage but Team SABCO made it official at Charlotte Motor
Speedway today.  Sterling Marlin will take over as the driver of the
No. 40 Coors Light Chevrolet for the the 1998 season.

Marlin will be reunited with Tony Glover, who has been promoted from
crew chief to team manager and will be responsible for all Team SABCO
operations but will be working in Sterling's pit on race days. Marlin
and Glover spent three years together at Morgan-McClure Racing and
were the winning driver/crew chief combination for the Daytona 500 in
1994 and 1995.

"When we hired Tony last year, I never dreamed of the opportunity for
Team SABCO and Coors to have Sterling Marlin driving for us," said
team owner Felix Sabates. "Sterling is a winner. More important,
Sterling is a nice person. I want everybody to get along on our team,
and I think that was the missing link we had."
