Simply Wow to sponsor Darnell's No. 99 Craftsman Truck at Martinsville, Gateway

CONCORD, N.C.- Roush Racing announced today that Simply Wow, a division of Source Direct Holdings, has signed on to sponsor Roush Racing's No. 99 Ford F-150 driven by Erik Darnell in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races at Martinsville Speedway and Gateway International Raceway.

"I've got a history with Simply Wow, so to have them sign on with us for a few races at this level is pretty cool," said Darnell. "They've supported me the last few years, so I'm glad we can continue the relationship. I look to have some good runs for them in the next few races."

Darnell will debut the No. 99 Simply Wow Ford F-150 in the 150-lap event at Martinsville Speedway on April 1. The partnership will also include the event at Gateway International Raceway on April 29.

"We're excited to get involved with Erik Darnell again," said Deren Smith, CEO of Source Direct Holdings. "Past performance indicated where he was going, and we're happy to be with him at this level. We're really excited to enter this partnership with Roush Racing."

Darnell enters Martinsville eighth in Craftsman Truck Series points, 138 points out of the lead. He will make his first start this weekend at the famed short track. Darnell has been the highest finishing Raybestos Rookie of the Year candidate in each of the three races thus far in 2006.
