Valvoline Ends Deal With Martin Roush

1121Jpg

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Valvoline has announced that at the end of the 2000 season it will no longer be the major sponsor of the Roush Racing Ford driven by Mark Martin on the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit.

According to published reports in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Pfizer/Viagra could step in as Martin's primary sponsor for the 2001 season.

Martin won the Goody’ Body Pain 500 at Martinsville Speedway this year, and is currently third in the Winston Cup points standings.

It is unclear if Pfizer would take on sponsorship responsibilities for Martin’s Busch Series team, as well.

"We have had an excellent and rewarding relationship with Mark Martin and Roush Racing over the past 12 years," said Steven A. Kirchner, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Valvoline. "We negotiated very diligently to continue our sponsorship of Mark Martin. However, the structure as presented to us by Roush Racing to continue our relationship did not allow for Valvoline to meet its marketing objectives."

"Valvoline is pursuing other opportunities within NASCAR and we are confident that we will continue to be a major sponsor in Winston Cup racing as we have been for the last 25 years," Kirchner said.

"We look forward to the remainder of the season with Mark and hope that he brings home his first Winston Cup Championship in the No. 6 Valvoline/Cummins Ford."
