ABINGTON, Va. (March 16, 2000) Morgan-McClure Motorsports announced a new contract with longtime sponsor Eastman Kodak Company. The new deal, signed earlier this week, extends Kodak's present primary sponsorship of the No. 4 Chevrolet, driven by Bobby Hamilton, through the year 2005.

The 15-year partnership began in 1986. Since signing on with the team, this powerful combination has gone on to record 14 victories, 13 poles, 63 top-5 finishes and 143 top-10 finishes in the highly competitive NASCAR Winston Cup Series.

"We are proud of the fact that we've been with Eastman Kodak Company for 15 years," said Larry McClure, owner of Morgan-McClure Motorsports.

"We have just signed a five-year contract, which will extend our relationship with a top-class Fortune 500 company through the year 2005.

"Since our first win in 1990, Morgan-McClure has shared some memorable and successful moments with Kodak, and we look forward to many more in the future."

By the second half of this season, when the STP sponsorship of Petty Enterprises drops out of the circuit, Kodak will take over as the longest-running continuous primary sponsor in the series.

"Eastman Kodak is happy and fortunate to have the opportunity to continue our long term relationship with Morgan-McClure Motorsports, one of the topflight teams in NASCAR Winston Cup racing," said Jerry Wallner, director of sports marketing for Eastman Kodak.

Kodak MAX Film is in its third year as the primary sponsor of the No.4 Chevrolet. Although the Kodak brands and the paint schemes have changed over the years, that familiar bright gold has remained an eye-catching fan favorite at tracks across the country.

Kodak also makes the Official Film and One-Time-Use cameras of NASCAR.
