(DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 13, 2003) - Because the fight against breast cancer continues, the Fan Challenge is on.

In support of Ford Credit's Fan Challenge, a Fan Challenge decal will replace the familiar Ford Credit logo behind the "88" on both sides of Dale Jarrett's NASCAR Winston Cup Series Robert Yates Racing Taurus for the GFS Marketplace 400 at Michigan International Speedway this weekend.

Ford Credit's Fan Challenge is an opportunity for race fans to contribute to the fight against breast cancer and enter to win a trip for two to the Ford Championship Weekend in Miami, Nov. 14-16, 2003. Ford Credit, associate sponsor of Dale Jarrett's No. 88 RYR Taurus, will donate $100 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation for every lap that Jarrett completes in the Kansas 400 at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 5, 2003. Should Jarrett complete all 267 laps around the 1.5-mile tri-oval, Ford Credit's donation would be $26,700. Ford Credit is challenging fans to collectively match that amount by the race date by making donations at www.racefansforacure.com. By participating in the Ford Credit Fan Challenge with a minimum lump-sum donation of $10, fans will receive an "I Donated to Race Fans for a Cure" pin, Ford Credit Racing bandana, Dale Jarrett autograph card and certificate of appreciation. Fans will also be automatically entered to win a trip for two to Ford Championship Weekend.

One hundred percent of each Ford Credit Fan Challenge donation will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to support its mission of eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease through education, research, screening and treatment.

Fans can also enter the sweepstakes by mail. No purchase necessary. See official rules at www.racefansforacure.com for full details.
