NASCAR- Miller Lite and Harley-Davidson Give Rusty Wallace a Wild New Ride

7 March 2000

    DAYTONA, Fla.--NASCAR champion Rusty Wallace Monday unveiled a new look for his No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Taurus, featuring a special paint scheme with a Harley-Davidson theme.

    The unveiling ceremony was held at Daytona Bike Week, a 10-day festival that welcomes hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts each year. Wallace, Miller Lite, and Harley-Davidson Motor Co. will give NASCAR fans their first glimpse of the car at a trackside press conference on March 23 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

    Wallace's Miller Lite machine will be wearing flames and the Harley-Davidson(R) logo over a sleek metallic blue body paint for three races this summer. Fans can catch the Miller Lite/Harley-Davidson Ford in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway on July 1, at Bristol Motor Speedway on Aug. 26, and the Sept. 9 race at Richmond International Raceway.

    "I also feel especially good about running this car at tracks where I've had successful races before."

    Miller Brewing Co. and Harley-Davidson introduced a special-edition Miller Lite/Harley-Davidson paint scheme to NASCAR last summer with great enthusiasm from the fans.
