Kvapil to Drive No. 09 Zaxby's Ford F-150 at California Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. (February 19, 2007) - Roush Fenway Racing announced today that 2003 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil will replace Joey Clanton in the No. 09 Zaxby's Ford F-150 for this weekend's Craftsman Truck Series San Bernardino County 200.

Kvapil, who has nine wins in 121 Truck Series starts, will take the wheel at a track where he has three top-10 finishes in five starts. Kvapil made a run for the Craftsman Truck Series championship in 2007 driving Roush Fenway Racing's No. 6 Ford F-150. He currently drives the No. 28 Ford Fusion for Yates Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

"We are going to have Travis Kvapil run the Zaxby's Ford F-150 at California this weekend," Jack Roush said. "After that race we will re-evaluate our plans for the rest of the season. We wish Joey Clanton the best of luck in his future endeavors and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Zaxby's throughout the season."

"I want to thank Jack and everyone in the Roush Fenway organization for this chance, but I have made the decision that it is time for me to pursue other opportunities," Clanton said. "I have several business and family obligations and it is time to focus on them right now."

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races at 12:00 PM PST this Saturday, February 23, at California Speedway.
