PURPOSE MONEY TO SPONSOR ROUSH RACING'S NO. 50 NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES FORD FOR REMAINING 2006 RACES

Concord, N.C. (October 31, 2006) - Roush Racing and Purpose Money announced the primary sponsorship for the No. 50 Ford F-150 driven by David Ragan and Michel Jourdain, Jr., in the remaining races of the 2006 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season. Ragan debuted the new colors of the No. 50 Ford at Atlanta Motor Speedway on October 28.

"We are very proud to sponsor David Ragan and Michel Jourdain in the No. 50 Purpose Money Racing Ford," said Dawn Landers, Marketing Manager for Purpose Money. "Roush Racing is one of the premier organizations in NASCAR, and we are happy to have them as a partner. Many of our customers are NASCAR fans, and we are pleased to feature our new financial services portal, Purpose Money, on the No. 50 Ford F-150 in races across the country."

Ragan finished sixth at Atlanta in the No. 50 Purpose Money Ford this past weekend, recording his seventh top-10 finish of the 2006 season. Ragan is also scheduled to drive the truck at Phoenix International Raceway on November 10. Jourdain will be behind the wheel at Texas Motor Speedway on November 3 and at the season-ending Ford 200 in Homestead on November 17.

"We had a great run with the Purpose Money Ford F-150 this past week at Atlanta," said Ragan. "What a way to kick off a new partnership. Michel ran really well at Texas in the spring, so hopefully they can do the same this coming weekend. I'll be back in the truck at Phoenix, and we'll see if we can back up our Atlanta finish. It's one of the best looking trucks on the racetrack, and I bet it would look even better in Victory Lane."

Jourdain will return to the truck series for this first time since September 23, when he raced at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Jourdain will attempt to make his sixth start in the series this weekend at Texas.

"I am very excited to be getting back in the truck this weekend in Texas," Jourdain said. "We ran well there in June and I think that will help us heading back there in just a few weeks. Having more experience now in the truck series, I hope that I can have a good run for everyone at Purpose Money. I am very happy to be part of this program."
