NASCAR NEXTEL CUP SERIES

MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Sunday, June 18, 2006 on FOX

MIS JUNE NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES RACE TO BE NAMED “CON-WAY FREIGHT 200”

BROOKLYN, Mich. –Ann Arbor-based Con-way Freight Inc., and Michigan International Speedway (MIS) announced today that the less-than-truckload freight transportation company will be the title sponsor of the Saturday, June 17 “Con-way Freight 200” NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at MIS.

In addition to its title sponsorship of the Con-way Freight 200, Con-way Freight Inc. is the primary sponsor of Craftsman Truck Series driver and Michigan native Jack Sprague, who is piloting the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota Tundra throughout the 2006 season for Wyler Racing. Sprague is the only three-time series champion in the history of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

“MIS is a great venue with a wonderful event,” said Con-way Freight President David S. McClimon. “Being a Michigan based company with a Michigan driver it just makes sense to sponsor a race in our home state that our employees and customers can enjoy.”

“Michigan International Speedway is my home track, so I always look forward to going there,” said Sprague. “This year’s race is going to be extra special since it’s my sponsor’s (Con-way) home track too, and they are going to sponsor the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race. I haven’t won at Michigan before, and I can’t think of anything better than to drive the No. 60 Con-way Freight Toyota into victory lane in the Con-way Freight 200 at Michigan. To have a sponsor like Con-way Freight is really cool – we do a lot of events and appearances with their employees and the support they provide us is incredible. Now to add this race sponsorship to the mix is awesome and everyone here at Wyler Racing wants to make this a memorable event for them.”

Last season, Dennis Setzer pulled away from Ted Musgrave on the final restart with two laps remaining, giving him his first career victory at MIS. It was also Chevrolet’s first Craftsman Truck Series victory at MIS.

“We are thrilled to unite with a great Michigan company like Con-way for our NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race,” said MIS President Brett Shelton. “The partnership makes sense for a lot of reasons. Not only are they based in our state and have a Michigan native behind the wheel of their Craftsman Truck Series entry, but a growing company like Con-way fits well with the series that just continues to grow at MIS and across the country.”

Tickets and camping for the Con-way Freight 200, along with seats to both NEXTEL Cup Series races at MIS, the June 18 3M Performance 400 presented by Post-it Picture Paper and the August 20 GFS Marketplace 400, are currently on sale at MIS’ official website, www.MISpeedway.com, or by calling the MIS ticket hotline at 1-800-354-1010. Tickets to all other events, which include the IRL IndyCar Series, NASCAR Busch Series, and ARCA/REMAX Series are also now available.
