After today's shocking announcement that Matt Kenseth--despite leading the points standings--would be leaving Roush-Fenway Racing, attention quickly turned to who would be replacing him in the #17 Ford Fusion. Shortly after the Kenseth announcement, however, RFR officials confirmed that driver Kevin Conway would be stepping into the car in 2013, maybe sooner.
"There was all this premature talk about Ricky Stenhouse Jr., but the truth is that we're looking to bring HIM up to the old #6 Cup team", said Roush-Fenway spokesman Blake Calvin. "We needed a solid sponsor for the 17 car, and Kevin Conway brings that with ExtenZe."
ExtenZe, which claims to use herbal "science" to increase the size of a man's genitalia, has previously sponsored Conway for other such teams as NEMCO Motorsports and Robby Gordon Motorsports. Additionally, ExtenZe was on the hood for Conway when he beat a crowded field to win the 2010 Raybestos Rookie of the Year award, winning so convincingly that Raybestos immediately stopped sponsoring it.
"It brings me great pride to bring such a vaunted, experienced driver to the Roush-Fenway Family", Calvin continued. "Not to mention the fact that ExtenZe is coming along with him. We have lots of experience in dealing with products that affect sexual performance , from Viagra to Crown Royal. ExtenZe now joins such valued partners as Ford, 3M, and the 20 or so companies that sponsor Carl Edwards."
ExtenZe's PR department issued a brief statement via Twitter, saying "NeW sPONSOR rUSH FENWAAY fREE HERbel Suppliments TRY 20 DAY SUPPLIES!"
