NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader has joined the Wood Brothers/JTG Racing Team. He’ll drive the famed Number 21 Ford Fusion during the 2006 Nextel Cup season. The car will be sponsored by the newest face in NASCAR – Little Debbie, America’s #1 snack cake.

"I look forward to establishing a winning tradition with Wood Brothers/JTG Racing and Little Debbie Snacks," said Schrader. "Some of the most victorious drivers in NASCAR history have driven the Number 21 car. I intend to continue that winning tradition in 2006."

"Three years ago, I thought that 2005 could be my last season. However, when the opportunity to drive for the Wood Brothers and Little Debbie presented itself, it made my decision to continue driving in the Nextel Cup Series very easy," said Schrader. "There is always excitement when a new company realizes the marketing potential of NASCAR for increasing its business and then decides to enter the sport. This is going to be fun!"

Schrader becomes the latest in a long line of winning drivers for the Number 21 team founded by Glen Wood in 1953. The family-operated racing team has 96 career victories.
