Lumber Liquidators Partners with Michael Annett at Lowe's Motor Speedway

Concord, N.C. (October 13, 2009) -- Michael Annett and the No. 15 Germain Racing team are looking forward to a full week at home in North Carolina as the Nationwide Series competes at Lowe's Motor Speedway this week for the Dollar General 300, where they will be sponsored by Lumber Liquidators.

As a longtime partner with Germain Racing, Lumber Liquidators has jumped on board with the team and Annett for the Nationwide Series Dollar General 300. Previously sponsoring Annett's teammate Todd Bodine in the Truck Series from 2006 until 2008, Lumber Liquidators will sponsor the No. 15 Lumber Liquidators Toyota Camry at Lowe's Motor Speedway in addition to four races for Bodine in the No. 30 in the Truck Series. Team sponsor Pilot Travel Centers will sport their logo as an associate sponsor on the rear quarter panels of the No. 15.

"I'm excited have a new sponsor on the No. 15 Toyota Camry for the Charlotte race," said Annett, "Lumber Liquidators has been a continuous supporter of Germain Racing's truck program, so it's exciting to represent them in their first venture into the Nationwide Series. I'm looking forward to getting a good finish here at home in North Carolina for both the team and Lumber Liquidators."

"The Nationwide Series is a natural extension for Lumber Liquidators to leverage considering our partnership with Todd Bodine and Germain Racing," said Tom Sullivan, Lumber Liquidators Chairman and Founder. "We Look forward to associating ourselves with Michael Annett, a talented young driver with a bright future in NASCAR."

Annett currently sits 11th in the Nationwide Series point race with only 37 points separating him from the top-10, and he hopes to improve his ranking with a good run at Lowe's. Historically the rookie driver and his Germain Racing team have proved to be successful at intermediate tracks, so they're optimistic for competing on another mile and a half track for the Dollar General 300.

"Mile and a half tracks are really our specialty," noted Crew Chief Ryan Fugle, "Having Lumber Liquidators on the car will make the race at Charlotte's mile and a half track even more exciting because together Germain Racing and Lumber Liquidators have more wins in the truck series on mile and a half tracks than anyone else. We're hoping to transfer that success to the No. 15 Nationwide Series team this weekend. We've had some of our strongest runs at intermediate tracks this season, so we've got confidence for a good finish heading into this week's race."
