CitiFinancial Returns to Robert Yates Racing for 2007

BALTIMORE, Md. (November 14, 2006) -- CitiFinancial announced today that they have extended their current contract with Robert Yates Racing as the primary sponsor on the No. 90 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion through 2007. Stephen Leicht will return as the full time driver for the CitiFinancial Team in the NASCAR Busch Series.

"CitiFinancial has been behind me since I started my career in the NASCAR Busch Series," said Leicht. "I couldn't be more proud of this relationship between Robert Yates Racing and CitiFinancial. I look forward to continuing what we've started with the No. 90 CitiFinancial team."

CitiFinancial, a leading community-based lender in North America, joined Robert Yates Racing as an associate on their NASCAR NEXTEL Cup cars in 2004. The sponsorship grew into a partial NASCAR Busch Schedule in 2005 and a full time NASCAR Busch Series Schedule in 2006.

"Stephen Leicht and Robert Yates Racing are an important part of our sports marketing efforts and outreach to our employees," said Mike Jones, CitiFinancial Marketing. "The NASCAR fans are our customers and we're eager to see what the 2007 season will bring."

CitiFinancial will also remain an associate sponsor on the No. 38 M&M'S Ford driven by David Gilliland.
