    RACE BONUS INFO

  • The NASCAR Winston Cup Leader Bonus is $170,000 at New Hampshire for leading the points and winning the race.(Dale Jarrett last won the award, $10,000 at Daytona) The $340,000 annual award is paid at $10,000 per race to the point leader at the end of each event if he is also the winner. The award increases by $10,000 each week the it goes unclaimed. If the point leader is not the race winner at the end of the year, the balance of the award is distributed among the top-10 finisher in the point standings(7-1-2000)

  • Leader Bonus: The Winston Cup leader bonus began in 1996 and has never been higher than it will be this weekend at New Hampshire. The bonus goes to a driver who wins a race and is the points leader at the end of that race. It begins at $10,000 and rolls over each week it isn't won. Dale Jarrett won it by winning the Daytona 500 to start the season, of course, but it hasn't been won since and stands at $170,000. That ties the record set back in 1996. Jeff Gordon won an additional $160,000 when he won at Talladega in July of that year(7-1-2000)

  • Problem with the #6? #5? UPDATE Fines: Hours after the race, NASCAR officials announced they had discovered "an issue" with Mark Martinís #6 Valvoline Ford but would not discuss what, if anything, had failed to pass post-race inspection. Indications are that "the issue" would not change the final finishing order, apparently meaning that Martinís team may face some sort of fine or other punishment(Gaston Gazette) AND Two Winston Cup teams face penalties from NASCAR on Monday after irregularities were found with their cars during the inspection process on Sunday. NASCAR inspectors discovered one or more rule violations with the #5 Chevy driven by Terry Labonte during inspections prior to Sunday's Thatlook.com 300 at New Hampshire. During the post-race inspections, inspectors found one or more rule violations with the #6 Ford of Mark Martin. Winston Cup director Gary Nelson said Sunday night both teams would face fines, but would not lose driver or owner points or have their finishing position changed in Sunday's race. Nelson said NASCAR expected to announce the fines sometime Monday(That's Racin')(7-10-2000)
    UPDATE Fines: Jimmy Fennig, crew chief for Mark Martin, was fined $25,000 Monday after Martin's #6 Ford was found to be lower than the minimum height requirement in postrace inspection following Sunday's New England 300. Gary DeHart, crew chief for Terry Labonte, was also fined $7,000 for an improperly attached weight on the #5 Chevrolet. NASCAR inspectors found that violation in their prerace inspection on Sunday(That's Racin')(7-11-2000)

  • thatlook.com 300 thatlook.com and New Hampshire International Speedway announced a marketing partnership that will include sponsorship of the track's NASCAR racing events for this upcoming July 7-9,2000 weekend. "We are pleased to have our first dot com company join us as name and title sponsor of the thatlook.com 300 NASCAR Winston Cup race as well as our entire race weekend here at The Magic Mile," said NHIS President Gary Bahre. thatlook.com is an experienced national service group assisting individuals to obtain affordable and convenient elective cosmetic surgery to improve their physical appearance(NHIS PR)(7-5-2000)

  • NHIS Grand Marshall: Well-known television broadcaster Ken Squier has been named the Grand Marshall for the July 9 New England 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway. A life-long friend to motorsports, Squier has gained national acclaim as the voice of CBSís auto racing coverage. Squier is a partner in the television production firm World Sports, owns a group of five radio stations in Vermont, and also owns the Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Vermont(PR)(7-4-2000)

  • Track Qualifying Records fall in 2000: In 17 events there have been nine(9) track records set, including Bristol, California, Lowes, Michigan, Pocono, Rockingham, Texas, Las Vegas and Sears Point. These are TRACK records, not EVENT records(6-30-2000)

  • How to Calculate Track Speeds: use the formula Speed = Distance divided by Time. Distance is Track Length, and Lap Time into Hours. Once hour is 3600 seconds, so the calculation for a 48 second lap at Daytona(2.5 miles) would be: Speed = 2.5 x (3600/48), = 2.5 x 75 = 187.500mph. For a 19 second lap at Bristol(.533 miles): Speed = .533 x (3600/19), = .533 x 189.474 = a speed of 100.990mph

  • One owner, three winners? That's Racin' brings up a good question. When was the last time a team owner had three different drivers win in the same season? as Jack Roush has now done this year with Mark Martin, Jeff Burton and Matt Kenseth. The last to do it was Rick Hendrick in 1989 with Darrell Waltrip (six wins), Ken Schrader (one win) and Geoffrey Bodine (one win)(That's Racin') Technically, Mark Martin is listed as the owner of Kenseth's car and Robert Corn is listed as the owner on the Burton car, but all fall under the Roush Racing umbrella(5-31-2000)

  • Winners: 1999 was the fifth straight year that there have been 11 different winners in a season (1995-99). Every winner in 1999 was from a multi-car team. The last time a single-car team scored a victory was by Ricky Rudd at Martinsville in September 1998(NOL)(11-24-1999)

  • UPDATE: Jeff Burton was the first driver to win from a provisional starting spot EVER at New Hampshire in 1999 and that is the farthest back any driver has won from since Kyle Petty won from 37th at Dover in June 1995(in 1995 37th was not a provisional starting spot). Bill Elliott also won from 38th spot in the 1988 Pepsi 400. In fact ALL the provisional starters for the race finished in the top 25 at NHIS(7-11-1999) -- UPDATE: Add Bobby Labonte as the 2nd ever provisional winners by winning the 1999 NAPA 500 at Atlanta(11-21-1999)
