Travis Kvapil Permitted To Pursue Other Opportunities

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI (December 8, 2005) - With the recent decision by Penske-Jasper Racing and Eastman Kodak Company to not field the No. 77 Kodak Dodge in the 2006 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup season, 2005 rookie Travis Kvapil is permitted to seek other driving opportunities.

"I want to thank Travis for what he has provided to Penske-Jasper Racing during this year," said Roger Penske. "Travis is a talented driver and an excellent ambassador for our team and our sponsors. While it is unfortunate that we will not field the Kodak Dodge in 2006, I am confident that Travis will find the opportunity to drive another car next year."

Kodak, which will continue as an associate sponsor with the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge, intends to re-enter the No. 77 Kodak Dodge in the 2007 NEXTEL Cup season.
