BEDFORD, Ill. — Joining the No. 34 CarParts.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRTS) Ford Mustang team and driver Michael McDowell as they return this weekend to the Daytona International Speedway after their Daytona 500 victory in February will be PowerStop, the leading brand in performance braking systems. PowerStop will be a major associate sponsor.

The race will serve as the final regular season race before McDowell enters the 10-race NASCAR Playoffs. There is no better track and race for the CarParts.com team before competing for a chance at the NASCAR Cup Series championship. McDowell comes back to Daytona, not only as the reigning Daytona 500 champion, but also with confidence knowing his car will be fast and that he can beat the field.

Winning the Daytona 500 helped the No. 34 team off the track as well. CarParts.com locked in a season-long partnership that featured McDowell in a national commercial as well as returning as the primary partner this weekend with PowerStop again on the No. 34.
