UPS delivers for 6 car; Army might hook up with Newman, sources say

LOUDON, N.H. -- UPS officially was announced as the sponsor for David Ragan's No. 6 car at Roush Fenway Racing on Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Also, sources said Army is close to finalizing a deal to be a partial co-sponsor of Ryan Newman's car at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009.

Michael Waltrip Racing will fill the loss of UPS on David Reutimann's car with Aaron's and another sponsor to be named later.

Dale Earnhardt Inc. is left looking for a sponsor to replace Army on the No. 8 that will be driven by Aric Almirola. The No. 01 car of Regan Smith also is sponsorless for next season.
