Delphi to Continue Sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports & JR Motorsports

Primary Sponsor for Seven Nationwide Races with Tony Stewart and Brad Keselowski

LAS VEGAS — Delphi has announced that it will continue its major associate sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports during the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. In addition, Delphi will be the primary sponsor for seven NASCAR Nationwide Series races with JR Motorsports next year. The announcement was made at a press conference held at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.

Delphi will be the primary sponsor for one Nationwide Series race with driver Tony Stewart in the No. 5 Delphi Chevrolet fielded by JR Motorsports. Additionally, Delphi will be the primary sponsor for Brad Keselowski in the JR Motorsports No. 88 Chevrolet for six Nationwide races in 2009. The race details will be announced in the near future. Delphi also will be an associate sponsor of all 2008 Hendrick Motorsports 2009 Spring Cup entries.

"Hendrick Motorsports is one of the top teams in one of the most popular sports in the United States, and we look forward to another winning year with the entire Hendrick team," says Francisco “Frank” Ordonez, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions, and vice president, Delphi Corp. "We are very excited to welcome Tony Stewart and Brad Keselowski to the Delphi family. We plan to build upon our successful 2008 season with JR Motorsports and Hendrick, which included a great win by Mark Martin at Las Vegas Motor Speedway."

Delphi will continue to be featured on the uniforms of all Hendrick Motorsports drivers for the 2009 season, including four-time Sprint Cup Champion Jeff Gordon, two-time defending Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mark Martin.

"Our long-standing association with Delphi has been unbelievable," says Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. "The relationship has been immeasurably important to our company from both a quality and technology standpoint, and we look forward to having Delphi continue as a key partner for the 2009 season."
