AAA-Sponsored Nextel Cup Series Car to Feature Special Paint Scheme During Neighborhood Excellence 400 at Dover International Speedway

Orlando, Fla. – 5/9/2006

No. 6 Ford Fusion Driven by Mark Martin to Highlight Insurance Products from AAA

AAA, 2006 sponsor of Roush Racing’s No. 6 Ford Fusion driven by NEXTEL Cup veteran Mark Martin, today announced it will introduce a special paint scheme highlighting AAA’s insurance products the weekend of the “Neighborhood Excellence 400” at the Dover International Speedway in June. Weekend events also include the “AAA Insurance 200” NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event.

The special AAA design also may be used selectively at other NEXTEL Cup events throughout the 2006 season. It features a dominant, dark blue background and chrome lettering while maintaining key elements of the traditional AAA No. 6 paint scheme.

“The dynamic look of this design reflects the contemporary nature of AAA’s highly successful and respected insurance products,” said Spencer Roman, chief executive officer, AAA Mid-Atlantic Insurance Group, which is sponsoring the “AAA Insurance 200.”

AAA clubs provide a variety of insurance products and services as member benefits. These include automobile and homeowners insurance, as well as life, accident and health insurance.

AAA also said die-cast replicas of the No. 6 car featuring the special paint scheme will be available to the public in late summer or early fall.

As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 49 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services, and member-exclusive savings.
