Dodge Avenger to Race in NASCAR Nextel Cup Competition in 2007

* All-new 2008 Dodge Avenger mid-size sedan debuts at the North American International Auto Show
* Avenger to be Dodge “Car of Tomorrow” in NASCAR Nextel Cup Racing
* Dodge Charger to continue racing during ‘Car of Tomorrow’ phase-in

Auburn Hills, Mich., Jan 9, 2007 – Chrysler Group announced today that the Dodge Avenger will race at select events in NASCAR Nextel Cup competition beginning in 2007, joining the Dodge Charger in the Dodge NASCAR racing lineup.

Dodge Avenger to Race in NASCAR

The Dodge Avenger race car debuted along side the all-new 2008 Dodge Avenger here today at the North American International Auto Show. The Dodge Avenger is a mid-size sedan that combines bold, aggressive Dodge styling with innovative interior features, high-levels of safety and reliability, exhilarating performance and excellent fuel efficiency of 30 miles per gallon (mpg) (32 mpg based on 2007 EPA fuel economy standards).

Dodge drivers Elliott Sadler, of the Dodge Dealers/UAW Evernham Motorsports team, Kurt Busch, of Penske Racing South, and, new to NASCAR, Juan Pablo Montoya of the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates team participated in the announcement.

“With NASCAR Nextel Cup racing two distinct cars for 2007, it makes perfect sense to have the Avenger join the Charger in the Dodge racing family,” said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Motorsports and SRT Product Planning, Chrysler Group. “Dodge is all about delivering bold, capable performance, and that will become even more evident when the Avenger hits NASCAR’s race tracks this year.”

The Dodge Avenger race car is scheduled to make its competition debut at Bristol Motor Speedway on March 25, 2007, as the Dodge entry in NASCAR’s “Car of Tomorrow” implementation.

NASCAR’s Car of Tomorrow is a collaborative effort by the sanctioning body, manufacturers, teams and industry suppliers to develop a safer, less expensive race car using a more common design. The “Car of Tomorrow” design will be phased into NASCAR competition over the next three years, beginning with 16 races in 2007.

During the multi-year phase-in of NASCAR’s Car of Tomorrow, the Dodge Charger will continue to race in NASCAR Nextel Cup competition.

Chrysler Group Launches Production of All-new 2007 Jeep® Patriot at Belvidere Assembly Plant

• Robotics, lean dies and material flow improve quality, productivity and worker ergonomics
• Third vehicle introduced at Belvidere Assembly Plant

Auburn Hills, Mich., Dec 20, 2006 –

Chrysler Group’s Belvidere (Ill.) Assembly Plant launched production of the Company’s tenth all-new vehicle this year, as the first 2007 Jeep Patriot came off the assembly line today. The plant which was extensively retooled in 2005, has become a flagship for Chrysler Group’s adoption of flexible manufacturing. Production of the all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber began in January 2006 and was followed in May by the all-new 2007 Jeep Compass.

Flexible manufacturing is allowing Chrysler Group to bring its new vehicles to market more quickly and the Belvidere Assembly Plant to manufacture multiple products on one assembly line. Additionally, flexible manufacturing has positively impacted production costs by a savings of up to 85 percent in some instances. The Chrysler Group continues to implement its flexible manufacturing processes plant-by-plant.

“We are now seeing the results of our flexible manufacturing strategy that leads to a competitive advantage for the Chrysler Group,” said Frank Ewasyshyn, Executive Vice President – Manufacturing. “Thanks to Belvidere’s ability to build multiple models off one assembly line, we expect the production of three all-new models to cost significantly less than the initial investment we made in the plant to build one product.”

F1 Montreal: Preview

Stuttgart, Jun 20, 2006
Since the Canadian Grand Prix made its debut in 1967, the event has been held at three circuits. The debut race took place at Mosport Park in Toronto, with two races also being held at Mont Tremblant before the race moved permanently to its current location in Montreal in 1978.

Renamed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 1982, in memory of the French-Canadian driver, the circuit lines the perimeter of the Ile Notre Dame. The man-made island is located in the St Lawrence Seaway.

Recent successes for Team McLaren Mercedes in Canada include Mika Hakkinen in 1999 and last year when Kimi Raikkonen took the victory. The 1999 victory was unique in Formula 1 as Mika Hakkinen crossed the finishing line behind the Mercedes-Benz Safety Car, the first time in Formula 1 history that the winner followed the Safety Car.

Following the British Grand Prix, the team has been testing at the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France before leaving for Canada, with Kimi Raikkonen, Pedro de la Rosa and Gary Paffett completing 2,622km in total whilst working through aerodynamic, set-up and brake work.

KIMI RAIKKONEN

“The Canadian Grand Prix is defined by the long, high speed straights that go into very slow corners. As a result, perhaps more so than at other tracks, you need to have really good corner balance, so that you can get on the power right away as you exit the turn. Otherwise you would lose a huge amount of time on the straights. Because the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is such a fast track, we will run with a very low downforce set-up. It is also fairly low grip, as it is not severe on our Michelins we traditionally use a softer compound, so find the grip through this. As there are no high speed corners, there are no periods of high lateral loadings on the tyres. Despite the speed, you do need to be quite precise here, as it is part road circuit so the Armco are very close to the edge of the track. It is also pretty dusty at the start of the weekend, but as rubber is laid down it starts to clear on the racing line. It was fantastic to win last year, and we had a solid weekend at the last race in Silverstone, hopefully we can put in another good result this weekend.”

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA

“Although Silverstone and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve are both pretty high speed, it is in a very different way. At Silverstone, you don’t really need to brake all that much. At Canada however, braking is key, with the most severe demands of the year in this area. As a result, we will run with increased brake cooling, so you will see larger openings in the body work. In addition there is a real focus with the set-up on braking stability. There are various areas that can be adjusted to improve braking performance, such as weight distribution and aero and mechanical balance. Alongside braking, straight line speed is also vital at Montreal, because of all the long straights, particularly when trying to overtake. There are chances, such as into the hairpin. The Canadian Grand Prix is a great race, as it is so close to downtown Montreal, the atmosphere is like a carnival. I really enjoy the race and hope I have a less eventful time this year!”

MARTIN WHITMARSH, CEO FORMULA ONE, TEAM McLAREN MERCEDES

“We completed a productive three day test at Paul Ricard last week with Kimi, Pedro and Gary completing over 2,600km between them. The test has been a focus of our intensive programme of testing and development, as we still need to find performance in the MP4-21, and there is a lot of determination within the team to bring this to the track. With the front row grid slot and podium at Silverstone, we are moving in the right direction but there is more work that needs to be done to catch up with our prime competitors. The Canadian Grand Prix has high rates of attrition, and brake cooling is extremely important. The circuit is located on the exposed seaway, and as a result head and tail winds can affect set-up quite dramatically, provides quite a challenge to the engineers and drivers.”

NORBERT HAUG, VICE PRESIDENT, MERCEDES-BENZ MOTORSPORT

“The circuit on the Ile Notre-Dame is not a permanent track and, just as the impressive rowing basin behind the paddock, has its origin in 1976 when Montreal hosted the Olympic Games. There are only a few races at this circuit which therefore offers not so much grip. It is the most demanding track for the brakes and their cooling, even more with heavier fuel loads. Two thirds of a lap will be driven under full throttle, a little less than at Silverstone previously. We all have to work hard to become as competitive as we have been last year; five podium finishes in eight races do not reflect what this team is capable of and what we had planned. These improvements cannot be achieved overnight; however we will achieve them within a manageable period.”

Dodge Motorsports Racing

Road Racing

Nowhere else can race fans more clearly see Dodge Motorsports’ passion for performance than at the grassroots ranks of road racing. The Dodge Viper Competition Coupe is always a perennial favorite in road course racing, but the relatively new-to-competition, Dodge Viper SRT10 and Dodge SRT4, have also been quick to impress and climb the ranks of some of the most competitive series of road racing in America. In 2006, Dodge will continue to support the amateur and professional teams and series that it considers a major component of its racing DNA.

Sports Car Club of America (SCCA)

Dodge Motorsports offered nearly $0.75 million dollars in its SCCA contingency program in 2005 – believed to be the richest in SCCA history – and will continue to do so in 2006.

Among the prize money that it will award to Dodge drivers that finish first through 10th in the World Challenge Series, Dodge will further reward Dodge teams who earn points towards a Dodge World Challenge manufacturer’s championship in 2006. Dodge will also continue its SCCA Club Racing contingency program in 2006.

Dodge also announced a multiyear partnership with the SCCA to make its Street and Racing Technology (SRT) vehicle line the “Official Cars and Trucks” of the SCCA.

Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT: In a tight race for the championship, Tommy Archer drove his 3R Racing Dodge Viper Competition Coupe to a runner-up finish in the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT standings.

The battle for the title came down to the wire in the last event at Laguna Seca, with Archer driving to a third-place finish. However, Andy Pilgrim finished fourth and edged out Archer by a mere six points to take the championship.

While 2005 did not bring Archer a consecutive series title, he started out the year on a high note by winning the season-opener at Sebring. The 3R Racing team then traveled to St. Petersburg, where Archer won yet again. During the 11-race schedule, he collected six top-fives and only finished outside of the top-10 once.

For 2006, Archer will drive for AutoHaus Motorsports out of Pompano Beach. Fla. He will pilot the No. 5 Dodge Viper Competition Coupe in his third season in the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT division.

The 2006 season will also see the rising star of Mike McCann, 2004 World Challenge GT Rookie-of-the-Year, pilot a Dodge Viper Competition Coupe for McCann Racing.

World Challenge Touring Series:

Dodge will continue its technical support of privateer teams in the 2006 World Challenge Touring Series, including Woodhouse Racing’s Brian Smith, and 3R Racing’s Dan Aweida, who will both pilot Dodge SRT4s this season.

Club Racing:

NayKid Racing was the first team to build and develop the Dodge Viper SRT10, in its current iteration, for SCCA use. The team was extremely competitive in its 2005 SCCA Club Racing campaign in the Touring 1 division.

Scotty B. White qualified on the pole, setting a new track record at the Mid-Ohio National Championship Runoffs in September. White finished second in the race, while teammate Cindi Lux finished fifth. White also earned the SCCA Southern Pacific Division T1 championship for Dodge while Lux added to the trophy case with the T1 Northern Pacific Divisional title.

Both drivers will be back in 2006, sporting all-new Viper SRT10 Coupes in the T1 Series.

Stan Wilson held top-Dodge honors in the T2 class of the 2005 National Championship Runoffs, finishing seventh out of a 42-car field in his No. 92 Wilson Racing Dodge SRT4. Wilson claimed the runner-up spot in the T2 Southeast Division Championship in 2005, and is expected to return in 2006.

Rally America:

Dodge continued to outrun the competition in the Group 5 Class of the 2005 Rally America ProRally season thanks (in part) to DaimlerChrysler employees Doug Shepherd and Pete Gladysz. Shepherd and Gladysz piloted their 320-HP Dodge SRT4 to a first-place class finish in the season-finale Lake Superior Pro Rally in Houghton, Mich. The class victory gave Shepherd his third successive G5 Driver’s Championship and gave Dodge its third straight G5 Manufacturer’s Championship. Bruce Davis, in another Dodge SRT4, finished second in the G5 Driver’s Championship and Jim Brandt, (Davis’ co-driver), won the G5 Co-Driver’s Championship.

In the Production Class – a two wheel drive class without boosted engines with limited modifications – Sans Thompson and Craig Marr earned three class victories, earning them Driver and Co-Driver titles. Sans also picked up the Woodner Cup for the best Two Wheel Driver in the country and helped Dodge clinch the Production Class Manufacturer’s Championship.

Dodge has been a fierce competitor in the last three years in ProRally competition, winning the Overall Rally Manufacturer’s Championship in 2004 with the SRT4; winning the Group 5 Championship the last three years; winning the Group 2 Championship in 2003; and now winning the Production Class Championship in 2005.

Monster Truck Racing

Hall Brothers Racing’s Dodge RAMINATOR Monster Truck continued to stomp out the competition as Tim and Mark Hall defended their 2003 and 2004 titles in the Monster Nationals (indoor) and Special Events Performance (outdoor) series with a three-peat performance in 2005.

The Raminator plowed through the competition, winning nearly 85 percent of its races in 2005. And in doing so, driver Mark Hall was named the Monster Truck Racing Association (MTRA) “Driver of the Year” for the fourth time in his career. RAMINATOR was also named MTRA “Truck of the Year” for the fourth year in a row, which is exactly one title for each of the truck’s existence in Monster Truck Racing.

The Hall Brothers will continue its crushing ways by competing in an expected 39 events in 2006.

A great favorite with the fans, the Hall Brothers’ RAMINATOR and RAMMUNITION Monster Trucks both weigh in at 10,000 pounds and stand 10 feet high and 12.5 feet wide. Powered by 565 cubic inch supercharged Hemi engines, they are a formidable sight as they bash and crash their way across the nation.

NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series

Dodge dominance is back in style in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series as the manufacturer claimed its second consecutive series title with Ted Musgrave driving the No. 1 Mopar Dodge Ram to his first career championship in 2005. Musgrave had never finished lower than third in the final truck series standings since his 2001 debut in a Dodge Ram.

Dodge Rams claimed four wins in 2005, with victory laps taken by Musgrave, Bobby Hamilton and first-time truck winner Steve Park. But true to Dodge style, it was the teams’ ability to endure all types of racing conditions and wear out the competition that kept them on top of the series standings after 15 of the season’s 25 races, including following the final laps of the season-finale race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

“We’ve learned a tremendous amount from the truck series that will help us in Cup,” said John Fernandez, Director – Dodge Motorsports Operations. “We’re going to concentrate more on Cup in 2006, but we think our truck teams will continue to contend for victories and the series title.”

Bobby Hamilton Racing, which has placed a Dodge Ram in the top 10 Craftsman Truck Series standings each year since 2000, will lead a three-truck effort for Dodge Motorsports in 2006. Driver/Owner, Hamilton, will pilot the No.18 Fastenal Dodge Ram in 2006 and 2007, switching from the No. 04 Dodge Ram that he drove in 2005. The season will be Hamilton’s fourth full season as a driver in the series. He will also help usher in newcomers Timothy Peters and Scott Lagasse, Jr., as drivers of the No. 4 and No. 04 Dodge Rams, respectively.

Brendan Gaughan will return to drive the No. 77 Orleans Racing Dodge Ram in 2006.
