CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- July 05, 2012

Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) will be hosting ten active duty
United States Marines and their spouses this weekend at the Coke Zero 400 at
Daytona International Speedway. Carlisle is a sponsor for Brad Keselowski, who
will be driving the Penske Racing No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger in this
Sprint Cup Series event. Brad is fresh off a win last weekend at Kentucky
Speedway, his third win of 2012, which puts him in the lead for the most
Sprint Cup wins this year. Carlisle supplies the wire harnesses and clutch
friction products for the No. 2 Dodge. The Carlisle logo, which is typically
prominently displayed on Brad’s car, will be replaced this weekend with the
United States Marine Corp logo to honor the Marines in attendance that are
representing U.S. Marines worldwide and those who have served before them.

This weekend the Marines and their guests will be treated to a dinner Friday
night where they will be thanked for their dedication and service by David A.
Roberts, Carlisle’s Chairman, President & CEO. The Marines will take part in
race day activities which include pace car rides around Daytona International
Speedway, a private meet and greet with Brad Keselowski, attendance at the
drivers’ meeting, driver introductions and will be Carlisle’s guests of honor
at the race.

Mr. Keselowski, long noted for his contributions to helping wounded servicemen
and servicewomen, is excited to have the United States Marine Corps logo on
his car this weekend. “It’s an honor to have the Marine Corps riding along
with me on the most patriotic of days, the Fourth of July. These are the true
heroes in my book. The freedoms they provide us allow us to drive racecars for
a living. Hopefully we can celebrate with them in Victory Lane.”

Mr. Roberts, a United States Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam, is
looking forward to this weekend’s events, “These Marines have recently
returned from combat zones around the globe and represent the entire worldwide
Corps that serve and defend our country. This is our small way of thanking
them for their service. We welcome the opportunity to show our gratitude by
giving them this experience to truly be part of a Sprint Cup Series event.”
