The Longest Running Primary Team Sponsor In NASCAR Craftsman Truck History, Team ASE, Will Not Return For 2009 Season

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) will not return as a primary team sponsor in the 2009 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season, nor will it return as title sponsor of Presented by Team ASE, the nation's leading NCTS news and information site.

"As one of the original NCTS sponsors, our Team ASE racing program has served the organization well since 1994, but our board has decided that it's time to redirect those resources," said Tim Zilke, ASE President.

ASE is the primary sponsor of the No. 59 Harris Trucking/Team ASE Toyota Tundra driven by 2005 NCTS Champion Ted Musgrave. With 16 of 25 races on the 2008 schedule completed, Musgrave currently sits 14th in points, with five top-10 finishes.
