"We're real excited to have Pennzoil on the No. 99 Ford for Las Vegas," said Burton. "Pennzoil is a primary sponsor on the No. 9 Busch car but it's great to have them on the Cup car as well. They are a great partner for Roush Racing and they provide us with a product that is second to none. We look forward to running up front with the No. 99 Pennzoil Ford in a couple weeks."
Pennzoil is also a primary sponsor on the No. 9 Busch car which is shared by Burton, Mark Martin and Matt Kenseth. In addition, Pennzoil will be the primary sponsor on Greg Biffle's NEXTEL Cup car for the first Pocono race.
The addition of Pennzoil as the primary sponsor for the No. 99 Roush Racing Ford in Las Vegas is the latest in the continued search for a full-time sponsor on the No. 99 Ford. This announcement comes at a time when interest in the program is increasing each day.
"There is a lot of interest in the program right now," said Burton. "The team needs to stay focused on the racing right now while our marketing department does their job. We have a lot of irons in the fire and I feel confident that we'll have more announcements in the future."
