In January, Hertz and Penske Racing entered into a multi-year agreement with
Hertz serving as a 2013 primary sponsor for select races on the No. 22 Penske
Racing car competing in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide
Series. The No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang will race in a special livery mirroring
the Hertz Penske GT in the New England 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in
Loudon, NH on July 13.

In its first race, the No. 22 Hertz Ford Mustang competed at Dover
International Speedway on June 1 with Penske Racing's Joey Logano winning the
event for his third-consecutive victory at the Monster Mile in the NASCAR
Nationwide Series and his first Nationwide Series win driving for Penske
Racing. At Dover, Logano took the lead for the final time following a
two-tire pit stop with just 36 laps to go. Logano led 66 of the 200 laps and,
over the final run, he was able to pull away from the field, earning his first
Nationwide Series win of the season. It was Logano's 19th-career Nationwide
Series victory and the 199th series victory for Ford Racing.

Hertz is also an associate sponsor for the Penske Racing No. 22 Sprint Cup
Series and Nationwide Series teams and has a branding presence on the team's
uniforms and equipment as well as on the Nationwide Series car.

The Hertz Penske GT joins a list of custom performance Hertz vehicles that
started with Carroll Shelby in 1966 with the Shelby GT350H in the Hertz
Rent-A-Racer program. From there, Hertz developed a 40^th anniversary Shelby
GT-H in 2006 and a custom Chevrolet Corvette ZHZ in 2009.
