Poll reflects Musgrave as a fan favorite to win NCTS title.
Ted Musgrave, driver of the No. 1 Mopar Dodge Ram, received landslide fan support in a recent Nascar.com poll.

Musgrave received nearly twice as many votes as the other four drivers in last week's poll which asked: "Which former Cup Series regular has the best shot to win the 2004 Craftsman Truck Series title?"

Out of more than 78,000 votes, Musgrave received support from 39 percent. Musgrave's more than 30,000 votes nearly doubled the totals earned by the other choices on the ballot, three of whom were nearly deadlocked around 20 percent.

With fans behind them, Musgrave and his team from Ultra Motorsports are psyched to start the 2004 season on a tear when the NCTS kicks off February 13 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Ted Musgrave earned a remarkable plurality in a recent Nascar.com poll which asked voters to choose their favorite to win the 2004 NCTS championship among five successful drivers.

Snowy SCCA season opener awaits Team Mopar this weekend at Sno*Drift

The SCCA ProRally teams of Doug Shepherd/Pete Gladysz and Chris Whiteman/Mike Paulin are set to travel to Atlanta, Mich., this Friday and Saturday to take the first step in defending their awesome 2003 championship seasons. The two duos racked up no less than nine championships in 2003 for Mopar.

In addition to the Shepherd/Gladysz Dodge SRT-4 entry, two other Mopar-painted SRT-4s are registered to compete at Sno*Drift. One will be piloted by Don Jankowski, who was Group 5 champion at last year's Sno*Drift with co-driver Pete Gladysz. Jankowski's navigator is listed as Ken Nowak. The third SRT-4 is scheduled to be driven by 1992 Production Class ProRally Champion W.G. Giles and co-driver John Atsma.

Whiteman and Paulin will slide their Dodge Neon SXT through the snow in hopes of defending their 2003 Sno*Drift victory in Group 2 competition, which was their first of three victories on the season.

Appropriately, single-digit temperatures and snow showers are forecast for the event, which should provide a perfect opportunity to further prove the strength and versatility of the Dodge SRT-4 and Dodge Neon SXT.
