Schering-Plough sponsors NASCAR star for Sprint Cup


KENILWORTH, N.J. Schering-Plough on Thursday announced its second Sprint Cup racing season as a sponsor of NASCAR star and long-time allergy sufferer Carl Edwards. Edwards will drive the No. 99 Claritin Ford Fusion during the April NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR's most competitive track.

Last year, Edwards was runner-up in both the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series point standings. He also was the voice of the Claritin Clear To Drive campaign which emphasizes the importance of reading medicine labels to check for warnings about drowsiness before getting behind the wheel of a car.

"We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carl Edwards, and we're proud of his accomplishments," stated TJ Higgins, group VP, marketing, Schering-Plough Consumer HealthCare. "[Edwards] has been instrumental in letting consumers know that Claritin effectively relieves both indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms without drowsiness and is safe to take when driving."
