Earlier today, Toyota announced it would be fielding entries in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2004. Dan Davis, director of Ford Racing Technology, provided the following reaction:

DAN DAVIS, Director, Ford Racing Technology:

"We're not surprised, by any means. It's been well-known in the industry that they have been looking at the Craftsman Truck Series as a possible means to prepare for a Winston Cup effort. They certainly have been active looking for talent in the NASCAR garages already. We welcome the competition in NASCAR from any manufacturer. That's always been our approach when new competition comes into a series we participate in. We've competed against Toyota in other racing series, and we know how hard they compete as a manufacturer."
