Marines ending Busch team sponsorship

SCENEDAILY - 1:19PM ET TUESDAY AUGUST 8, 2006 -

Team Rensi officials say that the U.S. Marine Corps will not return as sponsor for the team's No. 25 Busch Series car in 2007.

Rensi has been partnered with the Marines for six seasons.

In a statement to the team, the Marine Corps stated that it is reducing its investment in motorsports. "Budget and competing advertisement initiatives are the primary reasons for this decision," the statement read. "The Marine Corps appreciates all the hard work, dedication and unwavering support the Team Rensi Motorsports organization has given the Marines throughout the past six years."

Team owner Ed Rensi is now seeking a primary sponsor for the Ford currently driven by Ashton Lewis. The team's No. 35 Ford will continue in 2007 with primary sponsorship from McDonald's.

Team Rensi recently announced a Busch Series alliance with Nextel Cup owners Robert and Doug Yates.
