West Allis, Wis. (May 27, 2009) -- The Milwaukee Mile is pleased to announce Copart, an online vehicle remarketing company that sells more than 1 million cars per year, has been named entitlement sponsor of the speedway's Friday night, June 19 Copart 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) event.

The Copart 200, as the event will be called, is an extension of Copart's involvement in NASCAR, specifically with the Truck Series teams of Germain Racing with driver Todd Bodine and Kevin Harvick Inc. with driver Ron Hornaday for a set amount of races this season. This is the first time Copart will be a NASCAR event entitlement sponsor.

"We are very proud to be able to sponsor what we anticipate to be a very exciting race," said Copart President Jay Adair. "This is just one more way Copart is reaching out to NASCAR fans and letting them know about our extensive inventory of classic, early, and late model cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, boats, snow mobiles, jet skis and recreational vehicles. NASCAR fans love cars and we have zillions to choose from!"

Defending Milwaukee event champion Johnny Benson will lead four returning series champions at America's Legendary Oval, as he'll battle it out with past champs Mike Skinner, Hornaday and Bodine, among others. Adding to the mix of an expected field of 36 trucks is Necedah, Wis. native Johnny Sauter, who drove to a dominant victory at The Mile in 2005 in a NASCAR Nationwide Series event.

"We're proud of Copart's involvement in bringing our loyal fans some of the best racing in NASCAR in the Copart 200 under the lights on Friday night, June 19. This is a great fit in matching up our extremely loyal NASCAR fans with Copart's access to tens of thousands of vehicles for sale every day on their website, Copart.com," commented Milwaukee Mile President & CEO Claude Napier.

The Copart 200 caps off a full day of NCWTS on-track activity Friday, June 19. The one-day format will include practice from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. followed by single truck qualifying at 5:30 p.m. and the start of the Copart 200 shortly after 8:00 p.m. All times are local, subject to change.

Terms of the agreement were not announced.
