Roush team to keep its Truck Series program



The Enquirer and wire reports

Roush Racing will complete the rest of the NASCAR Truck Series season despite sponsorship problems.

Jon Wood and rookie Carl Edwards have competed most of this season in unsponsored Fords and it had been unclear if Roush would continue the programs the rest of the year.

Sen. Bob Graham's presidential campaign signed a two-race sponsorship deal on Wood's car this month, then committed to the rest of the season after Wood scored his first career victory in the truck's debut two weeks ago.

Edwards gave Roush back-to-back wins with his first career win Saturday at Kentucky Speedway in a truck still lacking a sponsor.

BRICKYARD 400: A month after being released from his contract with Petty Enterprises, John Andretti was behind the wheel for Dale Earnhardt Inc., testing a car for next month's NASCAR race at Indianapolis.
