After seven years backed by Dodge and its dealers the #19 Gillett-Evernham Motorsports team have picked up outside sponsorship from Best Buy for 15 races next year.

Best Buy moves over to GEM from the #66 Haas CNC Racing team after two years as the primary backer of the entry currently pedalled by Jeremy Mayfield for nearly half of the 2008 races including the season opening Daytona 500.

"At Best Buy, we're all about bringing consumers the complete product and service experiences, and that's what we feel we've found with Gillett Evernham Motorsports," said Barry Judge, senior vice president of marketing for Best Buy. "With Gillett Evernham Motorsports, not only do we have the focus on performance, but we also have a charismatic fan favourite and proven winner in our driver, Elliott Sadler. We're confident this new relationship will generate excitement and enthusiasm among our employees, as well as our customers."
