Gas 'n Go: Old-school brew and Dew sponsorships
Some people may say, "Well, they're promoting people getting drunk." Nobody promotes getting drunk, and Kahne can have an influence on young people for Budweiser, promoting responsible drinking. Young folks may say, "Hey, if Kasey says it, maybe that's the way it needs to be."
DW didn't do No. 88 Dew carDoretta from Canyon, Texas: I know DW drove the Gatorade No. 88 and the Mountain Dew No. 11, but did he ever drive the Mountain Dew No. 88? Please help settle a family dispute. Jeff Hammond: To the best of my knowledge, he's never driven a No. 88 Mountain Dew car. It was always the No. 11, or he may have driven a No. 17 Mountain Dew car one time. Yes, he did drive the No. 88 Gatorade car. I'm so used to seeing him in the No. 11 and No. 17 that I had totally forgotten about him driving the No. 88. When we talk about history and the opportunity to make a number great if it comes to pass the way we hear it's going to with Dale Jr. driving the 88 he'll be joining a list of distinguished men who have driven that number. Darrell Waltrip, Donnie Allison, Buddy Baker, Buck Baker and Dale Jarrett have driven the No. 88, and those drivers are the ones that I remember off the top of my head.
HorsePower Tee Shot TourFor the average golfer, it's phenomenal to watch Power Golfers launch drives 300 yards and then belt them 385 yards when they get cranked up. It's like, "OK, game on." Through HorsePower Sports Marketing, we're creating a competition between these professionals and race car drivers next year on SPEED.

This week, it's almost like qualifying for a NASCAR race with four golfers already set and 35 competitors vying for four spots. It's a great opportunity to take two sports racing and golf that people love, watch and participate in and combine them. When you think about horsepower in racing, the same analogies about power and speed cross over into golf with club head speeds in excess of 110 mph when making contact with the ball. It's a fascinating combination of torque and biomechanics.
