Ford Credit donates another $10,000 to Komen Foundation following Dale Jarrett's win at The Rock.

(DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 24, 2003) - Dale Jarrett's victory in the Subway 400 at North Carolina Speedway on Sunday results in another $10,000 donation from Ford Credit to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to help in its mission to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

"It was quite a day," Jarrett said after his second career victory at the 1.017-mile track in Rockingham and the 31st of his NASCAR Winston Cup career. "There was a lot of fun, fun racing, and it was typical Rockingham."

Ford Credit, associate sponsor of the No. 88 NASCAR Winston Cup UPS Taurus, now has donated $642,500 to the Komen Foundation based on Jarrett's on-track performance and end-of-season bonuses since 1998. Ford Credit gives the Komen Foundation $10,000 for each of Jarrett's victories, $7,500 for each second-place finish, $5,000 for each third-place finish and $5,000 for each pole position won (as fastest qualifier).

Additionally, Race Fans for a Cure®, a charitable initiative designed to increase awareness of breast cancer and the importance of early detection, will be at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, and from 7 a.m.-12 p.m. on Sunday, March 2. All proceeds will go to the Komen Foundation.
