President of Beers die-cast
May will be a busy month for Rusty Wallace, Penske Racing South and the Miller
Lite Racing team with Millers run for "President of Beers."

benefits, Wallace will debut a red, white and blue No. 2 "Vote Miller"
Dodge during the 500-mile NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series event at California Speedway on
May 2, 2004.

"hometown" crowd at Lowes® Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. during the
inaugural NASCAR NEXTEL All-Star Challenge on May 22 and the Coca-Cola 600 on May 30,
2004, which coincides with the annual Speed Street event.

Wallace is an embodiment of Miller and its Miller Lite brand," said Fred
Wagenhals, Actions chairman, president and CEO. "When there is a special No. 2
Miller Lite race car on the track, Rustys fans always look forward to a great
paint scheme - and an even more memorable die-cast."
