MOORESVILLE, NC (November 18, 2002) - Ultra Motorsports owner Jim Smith announced today Tommy Baldwin Jr. has been tabbed as the new crew chief of the No. 7 Sirius Satellite Radio Dodge for 2003. Baldwin replaces veteran crew chief Tony Furr.

"What an exciting day for Ultra Motorsports," commented Smith. "Even though we just wrapped up the 2002 season yesterday, preparation for 2003 begins today. Our NASCAR Winston Cup program has made a lot of gains this season thanks to Tony Furr. To add someone of Tommy Baldwin's caliber is just the added shot in the arm that's going to take the Sirius Satellite Radio Dodge to the next level. Tommy is an extraordinarily talented individual. Although we've yet to name a driver, who ever we put in the seat will be successful with Tommy making the calls."

Baldwin, a native of Bellport, NY brings a wealth of experience to Ultra Motorsports. The veteran Winston Cup top-kick owns an accomplished three victories NASCAR's elite division, most recently kicking off the 2002 season with a win at the Daytona 500 with driver Ward Burton.

Along with the No. 7 Sirius Satellite Radio Dodge Intrepid R/T Winston Cup effort, Ultra Motorsports fields Dodge Rams in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for drivers Ted Musgrave and Jason Leffler. Ultra Motorsports is housed in a sparkling 55,000-square foot corporate office and race shop in Mooresville, NC.

The 2003 NASCAR Winston Cup season will kick off with the Daytona 500 Sunday, February 16 at Daytona International Speedway. The event will be telecast live on Fox and broadcast live on MRN Radio worldwide.
