PLANO, TX (April 11) -- Dodge Trucks have been chosen to lead the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series into town at each stop on its 2000 sprint car racing schedule, series President Ted Johnson announced Tuesday. The Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series' powerful Flame Red Dodge Ram trucks are equipped with a variety of Mopar Parts and are ready for serious towing with their 235-horsepower, 460-lb.-ft. of torque Cummins Intercooled Turbo Diesel engines. Widely acclaimed for their robustness and reliability, Cummins engines have real big-rig features such as direct-chamber fuel injection and forged I-beam connecting rods to help average nearly 300,000 miles before their first overhaul. Properly equipped Ram diesels can tow up to 14,300 pounds. Dodge Ram diesel models are available with a four-speed automatic or a choice of either five- or six-speed manual transmissions. In 1999, J.D. Power and Associates selected the Dodge Ram the "Most Appealing Full-Size Pickup" for the fifth consecutive year. The Dodge Rams are backed up by a versatile Dodge Durango featuring the 230-horsepower, 330-lb.-ft. of torque 5.2-liter Magnum V-8 engine. The Durango is distinctive among compact sport-utility vehicles. It has a longer wheelbase, wider track, stronger, stiffer box frame and more powerful engines for the highest trailer-towing and load capacity. It has the largest cargo capacity of any compact domestic SUV to carry Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series officials and their gear.
