DODGE TRUCK TO AWARD FIRST MUSHER IN THE IDITAROD RACE TO NOME WITH 1993 DODGE RAM PICKUP TRUCK

 ANCHORAGE, Alaska, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third straight year, Dodge/Dodge Truck Division of Chrysler Corporation (NYSE: C) will present the first musher and sled dog team to Nome with a Dodge truck. With a retail value of nearly $28,000, the 1993 Dodge Ram 250 4 X 4 Club Cab Super LE with a Cummins Intercooled Turbo Diesel engine is awarded in addition to the $50,000 winner's share of the purse.
 "The Iditarod is a test of stamina and endurance. The mushers face some of the most treacherous elements nature has to offer," said Don Glenn, Dodge merchandising manager. "We build our trucks to be as tough, so we think it is very fitting to provide the winning musher with a brand new 1993 Dodge Ram Club Cab Pickup Truck as a symbol of what he or she has achieved."
 The Dodge Ram/Cummins 5.9 liter Intercooled Turbo Diesel has more torque -- 400 pound feet -- and a higher rated trailer towing capacity -- up to 17,000 pounds gross combined weight -- than any other diesel pickup truck.
 Dodge Truck has sponsored the Iditarod Race since 1991.
