Michael Waltrip Racing Installs Jet Edge Water Jet Machine

ST. MICHAEL, Minn. (March 17, 2008) -- Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) and Jet Edge, Inc., announced today that MWR has installed a Jet Edge precision waterjet cutting system at its fabrication shop in Cornelius, N.C. MWR plans to use its Jet Edge system to cut parts for its three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams and NASCAR Nationwide Series team.

MWR and Jet Edge also announced their new technical partnership, which will give MWR access to Jet Edge's latest waterjet-cutting technology and position Jet Edge as a leading waterjet technology supplier to the $19.5 billion performance racing industry.

"All of us at Jet Edge are very excited about our new partnership with Michael Waltrip Racing," said Jet Edge President Jude Lague. "We are very proud that MWR chose Jet Edge to meet their precision waterjet cutting needs. It is quite an honor to know that our system will be used in building a winning NASCAR team."

Founded in 1996 by two-time Daytona 500-winner Michael Waltrip, MWR started out as a modest NASCAR Nationwide Series (formerly NASCAR Busch Series) team. It entered the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (formerly NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series) in 2004. Last year, MWR made NASCAR history when it became one of three full-time operations to debut the Toyota Camry in the Sprint Cup Series. Toyota's backing made it possible for Waltrip to build a 140,000 sq. ft. shop to house his multi-car Toyota Camry teams and to achieve his lifelong dream of opening an 11+-acre interactive family destination for racing fans, Raceworld USA. MWR's drivers include Michael Waltrip (#55 Cup), Dale Jarrett (#44 Cup), David Reutimann (#44 Cup and #99 Nationwide), Michael McDowell (#00 Cup) and Josh Wise. When Jarrett retires, Reutimann will take over the #44 car and McDowell will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut in the #00 car at Martinsville Speedway.
