JUSTIN LABONTE RETURNS TO THE AARON'S LUCKY DOG TUNDRA AT MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY

CORNELIUS, N.C. (October 15, 2007) -- Justin Labonte will make his third career NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start in the No. 00 Aaron's Lucky Dog Toyota Tundra at Martinsville Speedway this Saturday afternoon.

"Getting back into the Aaron's Lucky Dog truck is something that I have been looking forward to for awhile," said Labonte. "My last race in the Toyota Tundra was at O'Reilly Raceway Park, where we finished 27th finish, but I am confident we can improve on that and bring home a solid finish for the Darrell Waltrip Team and Aaron's."

The Aaron's Lucky Dog Toyota Tundra team has had some recent success. Josh Wise, who shares the seat with Labonte and Ken Butler III, has raced the Aaron's Lucky Dog Toyota Tundra into the top-10 two out of the last three races. Labonte hopes to add to that success.

"This team has posted great finishes lately and I want to continue that streak for Aaron's," said Labonte. "I enjoy racing and this is a great opportunity for me to gain more experience. The team is really supportive in helping me grow and become a better driver."

Labonte, the son of two-time NEXTEL Cup Series champion Terry Labonte, has never raced at Martinsville Speedway, but has two previous Craftsman Truck Series start and 76 Busch Series starts behind him. The North Carolina native looks forward to learning the track and bringing home a solid finish for Aaron's.
