32513Jpg
CONCORD, N.C. - Roush Racing announced today the 2007 racing schedule for the No. 26 Ford Fusion driven by Jamie McMurray in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. Next year's roster will include 28 races with Crown Royal and 10 races with IRWIN Industrial Tools on the No. 26 Ford. The first race for Crown Royal will be the season-opening Daytona 500. IRWIN Industrial Tools will run its first race on March 18th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

"It's great to have Crown Royal and IRWIN Industrial Tools back on the No. 26 car in 2007," McMurray said. "The commitment and dedication they have shown to this team is beyond words, and everyone on the team is just really excited to have these two great sponsors on board again with us.

"It's been a really rewarding experience to help both Crown Royal and IRWIN Industrial Tools with initiatives such as the 'Safe Rides Home' program. And with IRWIN Tools I have been able to attend tradeshows and visit some historic factories where the workers love watching and supporting the No. 26 car every weekend. It's very cool to be a part of these programs, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to help promote these world-class brands to the millions of NASCAR fans."

IRWIN Industrial Tools was the primary sponsor for 11 races in 2006. The best finish for McMurray piloting the IRWIN Industrial Tools Ford Fusion came at Dover International Speedway on June 4, 2006, where he posted a season-high finish of second place.

"Everyone at IRWIN Industrial Tools is extremely excited about the 2007 season and continuing our strong support for Jamie McMurray and the entire No. 26 Roush Racing team," said Eric Pinkham, Director of Motorsports, Newell-Rubbermaid. "We look forward to a fresh start and are already eager to get started."

During the 2006 season, McMurray ran 18 races in the No. 26 Crown Royal Ford Fusion. McMurray's best finish in the Crown Royal paint scheme came at Watkins Glen, where he posted a third-place finish.

"We are excited to have Jamie McMurray behind the wheel of the No. 26 Crown Royal Ford Fusion for a second year," said Jim Lorenz, Senior Brand Manager, Crown Royal. "With a new paint scheme, more primary races than ever and exciting programming that will bring more attention to the brand's 'Be A Champion. Drink Responsibly.' message, Crown Royal is primed for an exciting 2007 season."
