The article reports that Penske Racing will field the 2004 Intrepid on intermediate tracks this year. Dodge struggled to find the balance in last year's new Charger, especially on tracks longer than a mile. And driver Jeremy Mayfield's victory at Michigan came down to fuel mileage. Though other Dodge teams are working to bring the Charger up to speed, Penske has found the 2004 Intrepid more competitive.
