STONEBRIDGE LIFE INSURANCE TO SPONSOR NO. 99 FORD AT POCONO

CONCORD, N.C. (May 25, 2005) - Roush Racing announced today that Stonebridge Life Insurance Company will be the primary sponsor on the No. 99 Ford, driven by Carl Edwards, at the Pocono 500 on June 12. This will be the first time Stonebridge Life Insurance Company has sponsored a NEXTEL Cup car.

"It's really neat to have Stonebridge Life Insurance Company as the primary sponsor on the No. 99 Ford for Pocono," said Edwards. "This is their first race as a sponsor and it will be my first race at Pocono but I think we'll have a good weekend together. I've watched a lot of tape and have been talking to my teammates about the track so I'm really excited to go there and have a good run for Stonebridge. I'm proud to represent them and I'm glad they are a part of the No. 99 team."

Stonebridge Life Insurance Company is the sister company to World Financial Group, who appeared on the No. 99 Ford as a primary sponsor in 2004 and 2005. As a leading direct response insurer, Stonebridge Life offers families straightforward and convenient ways to protect their financial assets, especially when they feel like they are racing through everyday life. Like NASCAR and Roush Racing, they are committed to quality, quick response, and excellent service. It is these parallels that brought Stonebridge Life and Roush Racing's No. 99 team together. Lew Whalen, VP of Marketing for Stonebridge Life, echoed Edwards excitement about the partnership.

"We're excited to be partnering with one of the most recognized and respected racing franchises today, Roush Racing." Whalen continued, "We're equally excited to be sponsoring one of NASCAR's rising stars, Carl Edwards, in the Pocono 500. Although this is Carl's first Pocono 500 race, we're confident that talent and training will lead him to a strong finish. He shares Stonebridge Life's commitment to winning in a fast-paced world through integrity, dedication, and endurance, and we're glad to be part of his team."

Stonebridge Life will be running a major promotion around their sponsorship, with details of the promotion announced in the coming weeks.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
