MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 14, 2008) -- Penske Racing and Ryan Newman have mutually agreed to move in new directions at the conclusion of the 2008 season.

Newman, driver of the No. 12 Alltel Dodge Charger, is currently in his ninth season competing for Penske Racing. He is ranked 16th in the Cup Series standings through 19 races this season.

"I appreciate Penske Racing and all they have done for me, but more importantly, I appreciate their friendship and what they have done for my career," said Ryan Newman. "I would also like to thank all of the sponsors, especially Alltel, who have supported me."

The driver of the Penske Racing No. 12 Alltel car for the 2009 NASCAR Cup season will be announced in the near future.
