Quaker Steak & Lube Backs Kyle Busch in #51 Billy Ballew Motorsports Craftsman Truck Series Entry

SHARON, PA (May 17, 2006) Quaker Steak & Lube, title sponsor of the Quaker Steak & Lube 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, and the "Official Wing of Lowe's Motor Speedway", will sponsor Kyle Busch in the #51 Billy Ballew Motorsports Craftsman Truck Series entry at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

"Given that we feature Kyle's record breaking victory lane photo on our collectible Team Bucket at Quaker Steak & Lube, we found the opportunity to sponsor his 2006 entry in the Quaker Steak & Lube 200 to be a natural fit", stated Quaker Steak & Lube co-founder and CEO George "Jig" Warren.

Busch is the 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series Rookie of the Year, and is the youngest driver ever to win a NEXTEL Cup or Craftsman Truck Series event.

"This is a great opportunity for us to be associated with Quaker Steak & Lube seeing as we are the defending race winners," said Busch. "Last year's race was my first ever NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series win and it feels great to be returning to Lowe's Motor Speedway and having the race sponsor on our No. 51 makes it that much more extra special."

Quaker Steak & Lube, an associate sponsor on the Ballew truck, will join co-primary sponsors National Land Liquidators/B & G General Store/Manheim Central Fla. Auto Auction/Manheim's Orange Co. Auto Auctions Chevrolet on the #51 Chevrolet.

"We're extremely proud to have Quaker Steak & Lube on the No. 51 at Lowe's Motor Speedway," stated team owner Billy Ballew. "We're looking forward to having a great run with Kyle Busch behind the wheel and look for a repeat victory in the Quaker Steak & Lube 200."

Fans can tune-in for SPEED Channel's live broadcast of the Quaker Steak & Lube 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race on Friday May 19th at 8:30 PM.
