PENNZOIL TO SPONSOR TODD KLUEVER IN TEXAS NEXTEL CUP RACE

CONCORD, N.C. -- Pennzoil and Roush Racing announced today that Pennzoil Platinum will be the primary sponsor for the No. 06 Ford Fusion entry driven by Todd Kluever in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway on November 5.

Kluever's seven-race schedule will consist of Chicagoland Speedway, July 9; Michigan International Speedway, August 20; California Speedway, September 3; Kansas Speedway, October 1; Lowe's Motor Speedway, October 14; Texas Motor Speedway, November 5 and Phoenix International Raceway, November 12. The other six races will be sponsored by his current Busch Series primary sponsor, 3M.

"I really appreciate Pennzoil's support by sponsoring me in the NEXTEL Cup race at Texas this fall," Kluever said. "Being a Texas-based company it seems to be a perfect fit for them and another great learning experience for me. I hope to carry over the success my teammates have had in the Pennzoil Platinum car in the Busch Series over to NEXTEL Cup."

"Pennzoil has been a great sponsor of Roush Racing for several years now and I am pleased that they have extended their support to include a one-race primary sponsorship for Todd Kluever at Texas to help him prepare for next year," said Jack Roush. "We've had a lot of success at Texas Motor Speedway over the past 10 years and I don't think they could have picked a better place to have Todd help promote their product."

"It is great that we were able to extend our partnership with Roush Racing and Todd Kluever through the Pennzoil Platinum brand," said Paul Smith, vice president of marketing US for Pennzoil. "Matt Kenseth will be driving the Pennzoil Platinum car in the Busch race on Saturday at Texas, so it will be great to also see Todd driving it in the NEXTEL Cup race on Sunday."
