Bill Davis Racing and Ward Burton agree to go separate ways effective October 20th-- Bill Davis Racing and Ward Burton have agreed to terminate their business relationship effective October 20, 2003. Both Bill Davis and Caterpillar have enjoyed success with Burton on and off the race track.

"Ward has been a tremendous part of this team's success," said Davis. "We enjoyed our first Winston Cup win together and we also enjoyed several other victories, including the Daytona 500 and the Southern 500. We've had a lot of success that several teams, owners and drivers would be envious of. We certainly wish Ward continued success in all of his future endeavors."

Caterpillar shares much of the same sentiments that Davis does.

"Ward Burton has been a good representative for Caterpillar both on and off the track," said Greg Towles, Director of Motorsports for Caterpillar. "We have enjoyed our relationship with Ward and we wish him continued success with his racing and the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation."

CAT car carries special paint scheme--

The Caterpillar Dodge will return to racing action with the CAT Rental Store on the hood. It is the same paint scheme that was debuted in the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway in February.

"We're taking car #76 this weekend, "said Stoddard. "We're going back to Charlotte with a different car than what we raced with in May. It's the same car that we ran in Chicago (started 30th and finished 19th) and Indy (started fourth and finished 26th). It's a real strong speedway car, so we' ll see what we can do with it this weekend."
