Dish Network Signs as Sponsor for Roush Fenway Racing

The DISH Network AllStars Looking for Much Success in 2008

 
CONCORD, N.C. and ENGLEWOOD, COLO. (February 21, 2008) – Roush Fenway Racing today announced DISH Network® (Nasdaq: DISH) has signed on as a sponsor in the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

DISH Network will have a team representative and serve as a primary sponsor in 15 Sprint Cup Races in 2008, alternating between three Roush Fenway drivers. Greg Biffle will drive the No. 16 DISH Network Ford Fusion in 11 Sprint Cup races, Carl Edwards will drive the No. 99 Ford in three races and Matt Kenseth will race the No. 17 Ford in one race. The DISH Network team of drivers will be dubbed the DISH Network AllStars.

“DISH Network has been a tremendous partner to Roush Fenway Racing,” said team owner Jack Roush. “We shared several successes last season including two Nationwide Series wins with Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth. I look for similar success this season in the Sprint Cup series with the 15 DISH Network entries.”

“DISH Network is thrilled to sponsor such an elite racing team for a second consecutive year,” said Carl Vogel, vice chairman for DISH Network. “The DISH Network AllStars saw four wins and eight top-five finishes last year between our Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup races, and we’re confident we can bring that positive momentum into 2008, while continuing to communicate DISH Network’s superiority in HD and DVRs.”

The DISH Network AllStars first race is Sunday, Feb. 24 featuring the 2007 Nationwide Series champion Carl Edwards.
