Rusty Wallace 500 Sweepstakes Enters Last Week for Entries

Miller Brewing Offering NASCAR Fans the Opportunity to Win a New Car, a Jet Ski or a Trip to a Race and the Rusty Wallace 500 Concert

MILWAUKEE, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 26, 2005 -- Less than one week remains for racing fans to enter Miller Lite's "Rusty Wallace 500" national sweepstakes, offering legal-drinking-age consumers the chance to win the Ultimate Rusty Wallace weekend -- a trip to Charlotte for a race at Lowe's Motor Speedway, a behind the scenes tour of Penske Racing and the much anticipated Miller Lite "Rusty Wallace 500" concert event. Other major prizes include an all-new 2006 Dodge Charger and a Kawasaki Jet Ski.

The sweepstakes is just one part of the Miller Lite "Rusty Wallace's Last Call" tour, a season-long celebration of Wallace's final run as the driver of the Miller Lite #2 Dodge in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series. The tour kicked off in February during Speedweek in Daytona, Florida, and will include stops in Philadelphia, Nashville and Tampa.

"It's been a great 15 years for Miller Lite and Rusty, and we want to give racing fans a chance to share in the celebration," said Michael Hand, Miller Lite's senior promotions manager. "Rusty's 'Last Call,' along with the 'Rusty Wallace 500' sweepstakes, is Miller Lite's toast to one of the legends of NASCAR."

The season-long tour also includes Miller Lite "Rock and Racing" events, trackside public concerts by such major rock and country acts as the Black Crowes, Montgomery Gentry and Cheap Trick. A recent event in Charlotte, North Carolina, featuring the Black Crowes, drew approximately 12,000 fans during the NEXTEL All-Star Challenge weekend.

Registration is open through May 31, 2005. Consumers over the age of 21 can register to win at www.millerbeer.com. No purchase is necessary to enter. The sweepstakes ends May 31, 2005, and is open to legal residents of the United States and Washington, DC (except residents of California), age 21 and older at time of entry.
