Kluever To Run Six Cup Races
March 1, 2006 | 9:33 A.M. EST
Kluever's six-race schedule will consist of Chicagoland Speedway, July 9; Michigan International Speedway, August 20; California Speedway, September 3; Kansas Speedway, October 1; Lowe's Motor Speedway, October 14 and Phoenix International Raceway, November 12.
"I am pleased to be able to represent 3M in the NEXTEL Cup Series as well as the Busch Series this year," Kluever said. "I'm really looking forward to running those extra races to get ready for next year. We are going to be racing at tracks that I really like, and I'm especially excited to kick off my NEXTEL Cup debut at Chicagoland since that is so close to home for me -- and it will be my Mom's birthday."
"I would like to thank 3M for extending their sponsorship to include six NEXTEL Cup races for Todd," said Jack Roush. "He has exceeded my expectations in the Busch Series so far this year and we are going to do everything we can to make his transition to NEXTEL Cup as smooth as possible. Having him compete in six races later this year will certainly help advance his learning curve."
