MAX JONES NAMED GENERAL MANAGER FOR ROUSH RACING'S BUSCH AND CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES TEAMS

CONCORD, N.C. -- Roush Racing announced today that Max Jones has been named the general manager for its Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series teams based in Mooresville, N.C. Roush fields one full-time Busch team with Carl Edwards and two full-time truck teams with Ricky Craven and Todd Kluever out of its Mooresville operation.

Jones is no stranger to Roush Racing. He was the general manager for Roush's truck and road racing teams based in Michigan for several years before leaving to pursue other interests at the end of 2002.

"I am very pleased to be returning to the Roush organization," Jones said. "This is a great opportunity to work with several teams that have a wealth of potential. I was able to be part of Roush's first Craftsman Truck championship with Greg Biffle in 2000 and I hope to be able to help them achieve their second truck and Busch championships."

"Max has a long history with Roush Racing and we are pleased to have him back in the organization," said Jack Roush. "He brings a considerable amount of knowledge and experience which will certainly help our championship efforts in both divisions."

Roush Racing is a subsidiary of Livonia, Mich., based Roush Industries that operates 10 motorsports teams; five in NASCAR Nextel Cup with drivers Mark Martin, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, three in the Busch Series with Martin, Kenseth and Edwards, and two in the Craftsman Truck Series with drivers Ricky Craven and Todd Kluever.
