BRISTOL, Tenn., (March 26, 2004) --- Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates has issued the following statement regarding NASCAR's seizure of Jamie McMurray's No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge during inspection Friday morning at Bristol Motor Speedway.

"This is an unfortunate situation that happened today at Bristol with the 42 car," Chip Ganassi said. "This is a short track car from last season that we put a new body on during the off season. If there was an error made in the body shop on our part, we will get it rectified. We look forward to working closely with NASCAR to make sure this issue is resolved in a timely manner."

As a result, McMurray and the Texaco/Havoline were forced to unload the backup car, chassis #214.

McMurray finished 11th last year at Bristol in the spring race and finished third last August.
