Well...they had mopar on the 1 and dodge pulled all it's factory support out of truck racing for 06 and the had ASE on the 2 and they are not renewing for 06 either.

The only thing I can remember thats similar was when Todd Bodine was leading the Busch points and the team shut done during the season.

A little more info also, when dodge pulled support

Ultra Motorsports was stated to go back to ford

with F-150's, but could not come to an agreemnet

with Ford. So the owner decided he was not going

to run out of his pocket. Since they did win the

championship the owner really felt he had nothing

else to prove. Since no sponsorship has come up

Mr. Smith decided to close shop.

There's gotta be more to it than losing a sponsor..Daytona is more than a month away--They Just won the Championship, would it be that hard to find a sponsor for a championship team ??? Smith is blaming Ford..I just dont believe that! Why couldnt the team do what the 75 team did, or something similar anyways..The 75 team lost Chevy money, plus they lost their engine maker, Hutto...They partner up with Gibbs, get Gibbs engines and a diversity driver..Smith was in trouble with the EPA, maybe thats why he shut down...

I do not know the specifics of the close, just some rumors

I heard from others members of other race teams.

Perhaps David may have an inside scoop. I have not

talked to other employees of Ultra Motorsports. My

understanding is some employees knew and some

did not. A friend that knows Ted Musgrave said he was

shocked of the news. So my info is not complete just

rumors. I am sure a complete reason will surface. :D
