COCA-COLA 600 POST RACE REPORT: After 600 miles at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Bobby Labonte crossed the finish line in 24th-place behind the wheel of the No. 47 BUSH'S Grillin' Beans Toyota Camry. An intermittent vibration, handling issues and slight damage due to contact from another car slowed the two-time Charlotte winner's efforts Sunday evening.

"We had a vibration and our BUSH'S Grillin' Beans Toyota seemed to become tighter and tighter as the race went on," Labonte said. "Then with less than a hundred laps to go, we checked up because of an accident and I was run into and that resulted in some damage to the car."


Bobby Labonte is an avid grillmaster and in honor of his bold new paint scheme this week, he will be having a heaping scoop of Sweet Mesquite Grillin’ Beans on his plate this weekend.

That's Labonte's favorite variety of the seven mouth-watering bold flavors of Bush's Grillin’ Beans.

Sweet Mesquite Grillin’ Beans
Black beans simmered with onions and red peppers in a sweet and smoky sauce
Black Bean Fiesta Grillin’ Beans
Black beans simmered in a zesty chipotle sauce with corn and red peppers

Smokehouse Tradition Grillin’ Beans

Randy Pless and Mike Browning stood out this week with their highly visible grilling area and snatched Tailgater of the Week honors. The two natives of North Carolina had a grilling area, a living room area under a large tent and an observation deck in Turn 1 of Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Kingsford grill and charcoal at the back of their tailgate caught the eye of the JTG Daugherty Racing Tailgate Patrol on Saturday afternoon. Chatting with the group, they admitted their favorite foods to grill.

"This is our 27th year camping here," Browning said. "We cook a lot of chicken, ribs and fish. We use Kingsford Charcoal to grill out. Grilling out is one of the main reasons we like coming here and, of course, the racing."

We left a nice prize pack for the group along with some BUSH'S Grillin' Beans.
