CRAVEN AND ROUSH TO PART WAYS AFTER 2005

CONCORD, N.C. -- Roush Racing and Ricky Craven announced today that they will part ways at the end of the 2005 season. Craven currently drives Roush's No. 99 Superchips Ford F-150 entry in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

"I want to thank Jack Roush for the opportunity he has given me to drive for him in the Craftsman Truck Series this year," Craven said. "Roush Racing is an incredible organization and I have the utmost respect for everyone there. I have also truly enjoyed racing in the truck series. The competition is outstanding and I've had a lot of fun this season. My goal right now is still to get the No. 99 Superchips Ford F-150 in victory lane before the season ends."

"Ricky's experience, talent and professionalism have benefited our entire truck operation this year," said Jack Roush. "He has helped our crew chiefs, managers and engineers as well as serving as a mentor to rookie Todd Kluever. We wish Ricky the best of luck in his pursuit of other professional racing opportunities for 2006."

Roush Racing is a subsidiary of Livonia, Mich., based Roush Industries that operates 10 motorsports teams; five in NASCAR Nextel Cup with drivers Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, three in the Busch Series with Martin, Kenseth and Edwards, and two in the Craftsman Truck Series with drivers Ricky Craven and Todd Kluever.
