Tony Stewart Racing announced today that Chevrolet will power and sponsor the team's No. 20 sprint car, driven by Paul McMahan, for three years beginning in 2007.

Along with primary sponsor Bass Pro Shops, Paul McMahan will stay on board to pilot the car in the World of Outlaws Sprint Series next year, with Chevrolet also coming on as an associate.

"Our goal when we formed Tony Stewart Racing was to create a grassroots motorsports program that would compete for wins and championships while promoting qualified drivers to the next level," Stewart said. "We've been successful, but in order to remain successful we needed a partner committed to us and committed to motorsports. We found the perfect partner in Chevrolet."

Mark Kent, director of GM Racing, joined Stewart at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to announce Chevrolet's involvement in the series.

"Our sponsorship of Tony Stewart Racing ensures Chevrolet's future success in motorsports," said Kent. "So much talent has come out the World of Outlaws. It makes sense for Chevrolet to be in the series, not only to groom the talent that will one day compete here at Indy and at Daytona, but for us as a company to reach a very dedicated and passionate fan base. In addition, we want to establish Chevrolet as the engine of choice for open-wheel racers around the country."

Last year, McMahan finished sixth in the National Sprint Tour point standings after posting 26 top-10 finishes. He competed in the World of Outlaws Series part-time and won the event at USA Race Park.
