MaxLife, the premium motor oil created by The Valvoline Company for cars with more than 75,000 miles, will be the primary sponsor on Mike Skinner's #10 Chevrolet in Saturday night's Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway.

Skinner earned the invitation to compete in the Shootout by winning the pole for last year's autumn race in Richmond, while driving Valvoline Racing's sister car - the #01 US Army/MB2 entry. The race will be Skinner's fifth appearance in the Budweiser-backed event, when he will look to build on a best finish of fourth from 1999.

The Valvoline MaxLife Chevrolet will be crewed by the regular #10 team, led by crew chief Doug Randolph, which will serve rookie driver Scott Riggs in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series.

"It's fitting that, for this special event, we showcase a special product," said James V Rocco, Valvoline's senior vice president and designated NASCAR team owner, "We are proud to have Mike represent Valvoline Racing and MaxLife in this prestigious event that kicks off the 2004 season."

Along with its award-winning motor oil - voted product of the year by Lubricant's World in 2001 -- the MaxLife product line consists of antifreeze, automatic transmission fluid and engine protector.
