STUART, Va. (June 27, 2000) -- The Wood Brothers recently announced an expanded program with Roush Racing. The program includes the supply of motors, chassis and bodies to the team celebrating 50 Years in Racing during the 2000 season. The official debut of this newly formed alliance takes place this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The Wood Brothers have retained sole ownership of the No. 21 CITGO Ford but feel very fortunate to be included in the Roush family.

"We're tapping into stronger and deeper resources," said Eddie Wood, co-owner and team manager of the CITGO Ford. "Jack has welcomed us with open arms and he's giving us an opportunity to capitalize on his technology. Being a single car team we've sometimes struggled searching for the sweet spot on the chassis and body. Now we'll have our notes and their notes to work from. It will also give Elliott the opportunity to compare notes with some of the best drivers in the business. We've been on the top before and we believe this is what we need to do to rise to the top again."

Elliott Sadler is equally excited about the opportunity and believes this weekend is a sign of things to come. "I'm excited about going to Daytona," stated Sadler. "This is the first weekend where we are taking our single car team and making a six car multi-car team out of it. We've been behind a little bit on our restrictor plate stuff and now I feel like we're back in the game. The car we have at Daytona this weekend tested well at Talladega with Greg Biffle and I can't wait to make that first run in the car. Eddie and Len Wood have a commitment to this team and to CITGO to make this race team the best it can possibly be. We've tapped into the resources that Roush has to offer and I'm sure I'll benefit as a driver not only because our cars are better but also because this new partnership allows me to have teammates.

Team News: Elliott Sadler is sporting the colors from the 1963 Daytona 500 win this weekend. The Wood Brothers won their first of four Daytona 500's with Tiny Lund. The win occurred after Tiny Lund rescued Marvin Panch from a burning Masarati racecar. Lund replaced Panch as the driver of the Wood Brothers car and went on to win the 1963 Daytona 500.
