According to a report in the Sports Business Journal, Monster Energy will have a reduced activation presence at this weekend's Coca-Cola 600 as part of an agreement with Coke. While Coca-Cola owns a 17% stake in Monster, sources said that some execs at Coke consider Monster a competitor. The report states that as a part of this weekend's agreement, Monster will not have sampling or its midway activation, but will still have some signage and the presence of Monster Energy girls in victory lane.
