Race Marks Machine Tool Manufacturer's Final Primary Sponsorship

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. -- The final race of the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup season also marks the last time Haas Automation Inc. will carry primary sponsorship for Haas CNC Racing and the team is commemorating the occasion by running a special paint scheme featuring the machine tool manufacturer's 25th Anniversary.

"Haas Automation is an amazing example of American ingenuity and we are honored to mark the company's 25th Anniversary with a special paint scheme at Homestead," said Joe Custer, Haas CNC Racing general manager. "As the team transitions to Stewart-Haas Racing, this is a simple way for us to thank Haas Automation for their support during the past six years. While Haas Automation will continue its ownership role with the new team, their capacity as sponsor will be reduced."

Founded in 1983, Haas Automation Inc. has grown to become the world's leading manufacturer of computerized numerical control (CNC) machine tools -- building, selling and shipping more machines per month than any other single builder in the Western World. Haas manufactures its products in the company's 1-million-square-foot facility in Oxnard, Calif., and distributes them through a worldwide network of more than 140 Haas Factory Outlets. Each HFO has complete showroom facilities, factory-trained service personnel, extensive spare-parts inventories and fully stocked service vehicles to provide the industry's best service and support.

Currently there are more than 88,000 Haas CNC machines and 51,000 Haas rotary products in use around the world. In 2008, the company will build more than 14,000 machines, with approximately 60-percent of them shipping to international markets.
