Cooper Tire Partners With World Extreme Rock Crawling Championship Series

FINDLAY, OHIO, APRIL 16, 2008 COOPER TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY (NYSE: CTB) today announced that it will partner with the World Extreme Rock Crawling Championship Series (W.E.ROCK) on a unique competitive off-road event known as the W.E.ROCK All-Stock Nationals presented by Cooper Tires. The All-Stock Nationals will take place September 26 28, 2008, in Hannibal, Mo. "Cooper is proud to partner with W.E.ROCK, the world's largest and most respected rockcrawling sanctioning and promotions body, on this first-of-its-kind event for professional and amateur rock crawlers," said Dave Craig, Director of Advertising for Cooper Tire. "This new event was the result of a close collaboration between Cooper and W.E.ROCK, and is a perfect venue to showcase our Cooper Discoverer tire brand."

Rockcrawling is a fast-growing, slow-moving and extreme form of off road driving using four-wheel drive vehicles to overcome steep obstacles and harsh terrain. Event locations include boulders, mountain foothills, rock piles, mountain trails, and more. Rockcrawlers often drive up, down and across obstacles that would appear impassable to most drivers. Rockcrawling competitions range from local events to national series and require a great deal of skill, precision maneuvering and of course, the right tires.

"The W.E.ROCK All-Stock Nationals presented by Cooper Tires is the culmination of 19 qualifying events across the U.S. throughout the year" said Dustin Webster, Executive Director of W.E.ROCK. "This is a once in a lifetime chance for amateur competitors to compete against the seasoned pros they look up to and admire. For the first time, amateurs or "average Joes" will potentially have the chance to topple their favorite pros. It's sure to be an exciting event one that would not be possible without the support of Cooper Tire."

The All-Stock Nationals presented by Cooper Tire will take place at the R-Rock competition facility in Hannibal, Mo. Qualifying events for the All-Stock Nationals include the W.E.ROCK Western Pro Nationals, the W.E.ROCK Eastern Pro Nationals and the W.E.ROCK Regional Pro-Am Series events. Above all others, the All-Stock Nationals presented by Cooper Tires will be a true head-to-head test of tire durability and performance.
