BAKER CURB RACING HIRES VETERAN CREW CHIEF BRAD PARROTT

NASHVILLE, Tenn., January 11, 2010 -- Baker Curb Racing announced today that they have reached an agreement with Brad Parrott to be the crew chief on the team's No. 27 Red Man Moist Snuff Ford Fusion which will be driven by Greg Biffle in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this season. The announcement reunites Parrott and Biffle, who in 2004 as a driver/crew chief tandem finished third in the Nationwide Series point standings, collecting five wins, two poles and 21 top-10 finishes in 34 races.

Parrot brings over twenty years of NASCAR experience to Baker Curb Racing having worked for many of the premiere organizations in the industry including Penske Racing, Robert Yates Racing, Roush Fenway Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing. In addition to his previous experience as Biffle's Nationwide crew chief, the Charlotte, N.C. native has called the shots for prominent drivers Dale Jarrett, Jeff Burton, Juan Pablo Montoya and Carl Edwards. He has 18 career NNS victories atop the pit box and also recorded one win as a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chief.

Matt Crews, Baker Curb Racing President on the addition of Brad Parrott

"Brad is one of the most well respected crew chiefs in the business, brings with him a wealth of knowledge and has had proven success being Greg Biffle's crew chief. We feel like he gives us a great chance to run competitive right out of the gate and to win a race. His dad was the crew chief in 1984 when Mike Curb was the owner on Richard Petty's car so the Parrott name already has a history with Baker Curb Racing."

Brad Parrott on joining Baker Curb Racing

"I'm really excited about joining Baker Curb Racing. My family has a long history with both Gary Baker and Mike Curb and I know they both have a great passion for racing and know what it takes to be successful. They have a tremendous facility in Nashville, a hard-working staff and all the resources needed to be successful in the Nationwide Series.

Brad Parrott on working with Greg Biffle

"Greg is not only a top-class driver; he's a great person as well. He and I had a great relationship in 2004 and translated that into success on the track. We won races, captured poles and were in the mix for a championship. I'm looking forward to continuing that success this season and seeing the No. 27 Red Man Ford Fusion at the front of the pack!

Greg Biffle on working with Brad Parrott

"We worked well together in 2004 and won five races. Since that time he has gained a lot of valuable experience with different drivers and teams so I'm looking forward to working with him again. I think that Brad will be a tremendous asset to Baker Curb in terms of how the team is structured and what it takes to get the cars running faster."
