MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 8, 2007) -- Ginn Racing announced today that CertainTeed Corporation, North America's leading manufacturer of interior and exterior building products, will carry an 18-race primary sponsorship on Joe Nemechek's No. 13 Chevrolet during the 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup season.

At the other 18 of 36 point races, Certain Teed will have a major associate sponsorship on Nemechek's car. The first race of the CertainTeed primary sponsorship will be the season-opening Daytona 500.

Founded in 1904 and headquartered in Valley Forge, Pa., CertainTeed and its affiliates have approximately 9,000 employees and 70 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and Canada. In 2006, the group had consolidated sales approaching $4 billion.

CertainTeed-branded products for commercial and residential properties include: ceilings, drywall, residential and commercial roofing, vinyl, polymer and fiber cement siding and trim; vinyl windows and patio doors; residential, commercial and mechanical insulation; fence, railing, deck; foundations; pipe and access covers.

"We are thrilled to bring the rich heritage and legacy of the CertainTeed brand to our family of sponsors," said team owner Bobby Ginn. "Having CertainTeed as a new partner at Ginn Racing is another red letter day for our organization. We can't wait to showcase the new No. 13 CertainTeed Chevrolet at Daytona as we continue our quest to be a leader in NASCAR both on and off the track."

"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Bobby Ginn, Joe Nemechek and the entire Ginn Racing organization," says Peter Dachowski, President and CEO of CertainTeed. "This deal represents an excellent branding and business-building opportunity for us with NASCAR's extremely brand-loyal fan base, our distribution and contractor customers. We can't wait to celebrate in victory lane with Joe and the Ginn Team."

Known as Front Row Joe for his qualifying prowess, Nemechek has enjoyed both success and popularity since joining the NASCAR Cup circuit full time in 1994. The Lakeland, Fla. native has visited Victory Lane four times and has garnered 61 top 10s and earnings of more than $28 million. He joined Ginn Racing in October 2003.

"I welcome CertainTeed to our No. 13 team and will be honored to represent the thousands of hard-working employees who have made the company the industry leader," said Nemechek "We have a lot of great things happening with our new team and having CertainTeed onboard only adds to our excitement as we eagerly look forward to the 2007 season."

The No. 13 CertainTeed Chevrolet is one of three full-time Nextel Cup cars that Ginn Racing will field in 2007. The other two are: the No. 01 U.S. Army Chevy to be co-driven by Mark Martin and Regan Smith and the No. 14 Waste Management/Panasonic Chevrolet, driven by Sterling Marlin.
