Once the car hit the infield grass, it flipped an unknown number of times before coming to rest on its roof. After a few moments, track workers flipped Almirola's car on its wheels, and Almirola crawled out and walked back to the ambulance.(SceneDaily.com)(1-21-2007)

    NASCAR JACKSON HEWITT PRESEASON THUNDER AT DAYTONA

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 18, 2007) - New hopes, new dreams, new season. Each comes into play for NASCAR Busch Series drivers and teams at NASCAR Jackson Hewitt Preseason Thunder at Daytona.

    Nearly 50 drivers representing over 30 teams are scheduled to participate in two three-day test sessions - a first for the series - beginning Friday. Teams that were in even-number positions in the car owner standings as of July 12, 2006, are scheduled to test Friday through Sunday, Jan. 21 while teams in even-number positions in the car owner standings will test from Sunday through Tuesday, Jan. 23.

    "It's great to get back to the track and see all the new names and the new talent," said NASCAR Busch Series Director Joe Balash.

    All sessions begin at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m., weather permitting, and include a lunch break from noon until 1 p.m.

    Drivers attending the first session include Juan Pablo Montoya (#42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge) and Marcos Ambrose (#59 Kingsford Ford), two drivers who bring international appeal to the NASCAR Busch Series. Montoya, a former open-wheel star, is from Columbia while Ambrose, a native Australian, competed in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series last season.

    The Florida connection of 1992 NASCAR Busch Series champion Joe Nemechek (#87 NEMCO Chevy - Lakeland) and David Reutimann (#99 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota - Zephyrhills) test during the first session as do Clint Bowyer (#2 BB&T Chevy), Kyle Busch (#5 Spectracide/Sta-Green/Delphi Chevy), Denny Hamlin (#20 Rockwell Automation Chevy) and two-time NASCAR Busch Series champion Martin Truex Jr. (#81 DEI Chevy).

    Timothy Peters, one of many new drivers preparing for their first taste of extended series competition this year, will test the #21 Richard Childress Racing Chevy during the session. Childress captured his third NASCAR Busch Series owner championship with the #21 last year while Kevin Harvick - who will share the ride in 2007 with Peters - is the reigning series driver champion, having won his second title in 2006.

    Fan Fest Offers Driver Q&As, Entertainment Fans watching NASCAR Jackson Hewitt Preseason Thunder at Daytona test sessions also have the chance to ask questions of their favorite drivers plus enjoy an afternoon and evening at Daytona's NEXTEL FANZONE. Among the Fan Fest opportunities: Driver question and answer sessions, show cars, bands, a silent auction, displays and pit-stop demonstrations. Cost is $10 for each session. Fans can watch each day's test at no cost, beginning at 9 a.m.
