MCFARLAND RELEASED FROM NO. 88 TEAM

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (August 10, 2006) -- JR Motorsports announced today that Mark McFarland has been relieved of his driving duties of the No. 88 NAVY Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet. NASCAR Busch Series Champion Martin Truex Jr. will pilot the No. 88 at Watkins Glen International Raceway this weekend.

"Mark was instrumental in getting our Busch program off the ground and he will always have a role in the history of JR Motorsports. But the reality is that as a business we have the responsibility of delivering a level of performance for our sponsors," said Team Owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. "This change is being made to address that concern."
