         === Romanowski acquires minority ownership in Swan Racing ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC  (Sports Network)  - Former NFL  linebacker Bill Romanowski has
 signed  on  as a minority-owner  of Swan Racing in  the Sprint Cup Series, the
 team announced on Thursday.
 
 Romanowski joined forces with upstart team owner Brandon Davis, who is leading
 Swan  into its inaugural full season in NASCAR's premier series. The team will
 make  its  debut in  the Feb.  24 Daytona  500. Romanowski's health supplement
 company,  Nutrition53, will  serve as primary sponsor of Swan's No. 30 Toyota,
 driven by David Stremme, for 10 of 36 Sprint Cup races during the 2013 season.
 Nutrition53  will have  an associate sponsor position on the car for the other
 26 events.
 
 "I  am thrilled  to jump  into  the NASCAR  world as  a  part owner  and as  a
 sponsor,"  Romanowski said  in a team statement. "Brandon has a vision for how
 to build a championship contender, and I'm eager to be part of it."
 
 Romanowski  played  for the  San Francisco  49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver
 Broncos  and Oakland  Raiders during his 16-year career in the NFL. He started
 in 243 consecutive games, appeared in five Super Bowls and was selected to the
 Pro Bowl twice.
 
 "Bill  Romanowski understands  what it takes to win, which makes him a perfect
 fit at Swan Racing," Davis said. "Bill is the only linebacker to start in five
 Super  Bowls,  and he did it  playing for four different teams. His leadership
 skills  and approach  to successful competition will help Swan Racing become a
 championship contender."
 
 Two-time  Daytona 500  winner Michael Waltrip is scheduled to drive the No. 30
 car in next month's season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway.
