BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI (December 9, 2005) -- Penske Racing South announced today that Roy McCauley will become the crew chief of the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge effective immediately.

McCauley replaces Larry Carter who will move to a management role within Penske Racing South's operations division.

"I am pleased to announce these changes to our racing organization," Roger Penske said. "Roy brings a wealth of technical and engineering experience to the No. 2 team. Roy and Kurt will be a great team and when you combine them with Ryan Newman and Matt Borland, we are looking forward to building on our recent successes.

"I want to thank Larry Carter for his contributions as crew chief with the No. 2 team. His leadership was instrumental in guiding Rusty into 'The Chase' this season. Whereas Matt and Roy will focus on the competition side of our business, Larry will bring a wealth of experience to an important management role within the operations of Penske Racing."

The moves of Carter and McCauley were made along with other personnel changes at Penske Racing South as the company prepares its two NASCAR NEXTEL Cup teams for the 2006 season.
