ppc Racing Welcomes Third Sponsor, RVs.com, Aboard the #10

DAYTONA, Fla. (February 14, 2006) -- ppc Racing is pleased to announce the addition of a third sponsor on board the #10 FreedomRoads Ford Fusion. Piloted by John Andretti, the #10 will carry RVs.com as an associate sponsor for 28 races in the 2006 NASCAR Busch Series season. Teaming up with co-primary sponsors FreedomRoads, the nation's largest RV dealer network, and Camping World, the world's largest retailer of RV and camping accessories, supplies and services; RVs.com stands to take the RV industry by storm.

The website is the first of its kind to offer one-stop-shopping and information for the RV enthusiast. RVs.com will feature real-time access to see and purchase a wide variety of new and used RV inventory, research manufacturer brochures and enable individual RV owners to sell RV's, obtain financing and insurance, and purchase RV accessories. The new site provides RV-lifestyle information about campgrounds, clubs, publications, safety, rallies and events from around the country. RV industry employment opportunities further enhances the site's appeal. Offering America's newest and most comprehensive RV industry website, RVs.com will become a major ongoing destination for those who both enjoy the RV lifestyle and those developing an interest.

The "RV lifestyle" is more like a "way of life" for those in the Motorsports industry. FreedomRoads, Camping World and RVs.com see this high-octane sponsorship as a way to reach their customers on common ground.

"FreedomRoads and Camping World are very excited about entering the Motorsports industry and expanding the awareness of both the RV industry and what our companies have to offer," said FreedomRoads Chairman and CEO, Marcus Lemonis. "With the addition of RVs.com, we are offering our customers something they can't find anywhere else. This is just one more way we are making it easier for people to take part in the RV lifestyle."

The 2006 season will mark the first full-time Motorsports endeavor for FreedomRoads, Camping World and RVs.com. The website will launch the same day the #10 competes for the first time in the 2006 season. RVs.com will be online when the green-flag drops on the Hershey's Kissables 300 on Saturday, February 18th.

Planning to make a splash in 2006, veteran driver John Andretti and experienced ppc Racing crew chief, Rick Gay, were selected to lead the #10 team. Andretti has amassed wins in nearly every competitive racing series and plans to add a Busch series win in 2006 to his list of accomplishments.

"I have a lot to look forward to this year," John Andretti explained. "I'm excited to compete in the Busch Series. My previous experience in Nextel Cup gives me great confidence that we will make a strong impression in 2006. ppc Racing is a championship team and with FreedomRoads, Camping World, and RVs.com behind me, we are capable of running strong and competing with the best of them."

Rick Gay has his own experience as part of a winning team. Gay previously served as crew chief in the Busch Series from 2001-2004, including a season as crew chief for ppc Racing driver Kenny Wallace. Spending two seasons as crew chief in the Craftsman Truck Series, Gay most recently led the #10 Ford Power Stroke Diesel by International race team for ppc Racing.

"I have a tremendous amount of confidence in the ability of John Andretti to pilot our #10 Freedom Roads sponsored race car," said ppc Racing owner, Greg Pollex. "John possesses a great deal of knowledge about the race car and his experience on and off the race track will greatly enhance the Freedom Roads program. Rick Gay was selected as the crew chief for his leadership skills and open-minded approach to racing. Rick's chassis and aero knowledge will ensure our race cars will be competitive with John behind the wheel."
