JR Motorsports

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 2, 2010) – As the NASCAR Nationwide series rolls into Nashville for the Federated Auto Parts 300 this weekend, the No. 88 car driven by Coleman Pressley will sport a special paint scheme featuring Earnhardt, Jr.’s popular restaurant and nightspot, Whisky River, and country music star Lee Brice.

Brice is preparing for the release of his major-label debut, Love Like Crazy, next Tuesday, June 8. Although this is Brice’s first full-length studio album, he has released four singles since 2007, all of which have charted. Brice has also written songs for some of country music’s biggest stars, including Curb Records labelmate, Tim McGraw.

"I've always been into fast cars and racing," says Brice. "So to see my name and the title of my debut CD on a car owned by Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and JR Motorsports is thrilling."

Brice is hitting the road in support of Love Like Crazy, including a stop at Whisky River’s Jacksonville location on Wednesday, July 28. More information about the concert and how to obtain tickets will be made available at
