This will be Ricky's 31st year in NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Racing, and will be the third year driving for The Wood Brothers. The driver of the #21 Motorcraft Racing Ford Taurus, who holds the "Iron Man" title in stock car racing has 752 consecutive starts on NASCAR's premier circuit. No driver in NASCAR history has ever come close to achieving this standard of excellence and consistency. The Virginia native's 830th career start came at New Hampshire International Speedway on September 19, 2004. The 2005 Daytona 500 will mark Rudd's 840th start in the series and his 753rd consecutive race.

A pole at Talladega in May, 2004 boosted Rudd's career total first place starting spots to 29.

Ricky's career in NASCAR's top series began in 1975 with four races for car owner Bill Champion. Then he moved to a team owned by his father, Al Rudd, Sr. He has 23 victories to his credit with six of those coming in Bud Moore's Motorcraft-sponsored Ford during the mid-1980's.

In 1994, Ricky decided to become a team owner himself and he ran his own operation until 1999. At the beginning of 2000, he joined Robert Yates Racing. Over the course of his career Rudd went to victory lane at least once every year for 16 consecutive years, a modern era record he shares with Rusty Wallace.

Two significant accomplishments top Ricky's list of achievements in motor sports - his 1997 Brickyard 400 victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as an owner/driver and the 1992 IROC Championship.

The Motorcraft driver started his racing career in go-karts at age nine and ran motocross throughout his teen years. The first time Ricky drove a stock car was at Rockingham, NC during practice for the spring race in 1975. He not only made the race, but finished 11th. In 1977, he ran 25 races, finishing once in the top-five and placing in the top-10 ten times. He finished 17th in points and was named Winston Cup Rookie of the Year.

Ricky, his wife Linda and son Landon reside in North Carolina. In their off time, the Rudd family enjoys 4-wheeling, snowmobiling and water sports. Ricky is also an avid flyer.

Ricky Rudd joined Wood Brothers Racing at the end of the 2002 season. One of NASCAR's 50 greatest drivers, Rudd becomes the 18th from that list to race for the legendary Stuart, Virginia team.
