DISH Back on Roush Fenway, NASCAR Racing

On Thursday, Roush Fenway Racing said DISH Network has signed on as a sponsor in the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the second season for the DBS company's NASCAR efforts.

As part of the deal, DISH Network will serve as a primary sponsor in 15 Sprint Cup Races in 2008, alternating between three Roush Fenway drivers, the company said. 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."
