Others missing the race are #52-Bill Baird, didn't make a 2nd round attempt as he wrecked in the morning practice and had no backup, and #72-Dwayne Leik, who also didn't make a 2nd round attempt. Of the four cars that made the attempts, two were faster(#'s 66 and 71) and two were slower(#'s 9 and 60). So the field is set, see the starting grid at NASCAR Online or Racin' Network(6-17-2000)

After the race Earnhardt wsas interviewed and handled it well. See the results at NASCAR Online and Racin' Network(6-19-2000)

  • Some Pocono Race Notes as it was watched: Caution Lap 182 #27-Mike Bliss spun and backed into the wall and #11-Brett Bodine lost an engine. #44-Kyle Petty lost an engine on lap 145. #28-Ricky Rudd's car was damaged during the Spencer spin as he hit Irwin when Irwin checked up during the spin, spent quite a bit of time in the pits to get the grill fixed, came in twice to stay on the lead lap, he dropped back to 26th still on the lead lap. Caution on lap 131 when #26-Jimmy Spencer spun out in front of #42-Irwin, who tapped him after Spencer hit the wall. On lap 97 #33-Joe Nemechek went to the garage with an engine problem, and #14-Rick Mast slowed down on the track when a rod on his shifter broke, went to the garage area to get it fixed and retunred to the track a few laps later. Caution at lap 72 for a piece of metal on the track. #75-Dallenbach returns to the track on lap 55, 35 laps down. #9-Compton was in the garage with a transmission problem on lap 41 and returned on lap 62. #18-Labonte was in the pits with the hood up, having an exhaust problem. #7-Waltrip has lost an engine on lap 34 and couldn't get off the track and caused a caution at lap 36. #8-Earnhardt Jr fell back when the lugnuts fell off a wheel during the first pitstop and they had to be threaded by hand. #12-Mayfield took two tires on his pitstop to gain track position and the lead. Some Notes: Caution around lap 20 when #40-Marlin and #75-Dallenbach got together with Dallenbach backed into the wall, basically the whole field came in to pit during the caution. #55-Kenny Wallace was in the pits, hood up with a broken suspension part and went back out a lap down(lap 23). #93-Dave Blaney cut down a tire and had to pit. #32-Pruett pitted on lap 11 as his electrical problems and has just re-entered the race, three laps down. #3-Dale Earnhardt had to pit on lap 4 when Earnhardt thought the right front tire was rubbing the fender and the yellow Goodyear was gone on the tire, TNN reports that #6-Mark Martin and Earnhardt got together. #32-Scott Pruett's car would not start at first, some kind of battery problem, but was able to get it fixed and made it out to the start(6-19-2000 2:00pm/et)

  • Pocono Saturday Practice: #60-Geoffrey Bodine was the fastest with a speed at 167.078mph, which would had been 38th in 1st round qualifying. Speeds are much slower. See the speeds at NOL and Racin' Network(6-17-2000)

  • What happened to Baird in 1st Round? #52-Bill Baird, the former ARCA Bondo/Mar-Hyde Series champion crashed in Turn 2 in his #52 Dynatek Chevy while trying to qualify for his first NASCAR Winston Cup race. The crew is working to repair the team's only car. Baird is not sure if something broke or if he cut a tire(NOL Notes)(6-17-2000)

  • 1st Round Qualifying for the Pocono 500 is over. #2-Rusty Wallace is on the pole with a new track/race record of 171.625mph for his Bud Pole Award of the season. #43-Andretti, #28-Rudd, #6-Martin, #88-Jarrett, #31-Skinner, #24-Gordon, #99-Burton and #20-Stewart are also above the old track/race record(nine drivers above). Old record was 170.506mph by Sterling Marlin in June 1999. 1999 ARCA Champ, #52-Bill Baird, is attempting to make his first Cup start, but had some sort of problem when went out and has no speed listed. Looks like the wind tunnel test that the #14 Pontiac just went thru helped out some as Rick Mast will start 13th. Three teams are out of provisionals, #44-Petty made the race on first round. #27-Bliss is 36th fastest and on the bubble if 2nd round is run and #66-Waltrip is 37th fastest and must find some speed and hope 2nd round qualifying is not rained out. But it looks like rain Saturday morning in the Pocono's, so this may be it for qualifying. If things stayed the same the following three drivers would miss the race, #66-Darrell Waltrip(42nd in owners points but out of provisionals), #72-Dwayne Leik(52nd in owners points), and #52-Bill Baird(no owners points). For info on provisionals, see my Provisional Status Page. See the 1st round results at NASCAR Online(NOL), That's Racin', Racin' Network or SpeedVision(6-16-2000)

  • Friday Pocono 500 Practice is over. #2-Rusty Wallace was the fastest in the three hour session with a speed of 171.242mph which is faster then the race and track record set last June by Sterling Marlin, a speed of 170.506mph. Wallace was the only driver to top the record qualifying speed. Slowest was #72-Dwayne Leik, attempting to make his first Cup start in the #72 Marcis Racing Chevy. See the speeds at NOL, That's Racin' or Racin' Network(6-16-2000)

  • Qualifying Order is up at That's Racin'/NOL for the Pocono 500. Links are above. First scheduled out is #6-Mark Martin, last is #21-Elliott Sadler, 46 drivers are scheduled to make an attempt. No #85-Carl Long listed, so I guess he could not get the Dover car repaired in time to make it. Also no #15-Ted Musgrave, no idea why the team is not at Pocono, have not heard. Qualifying starts at 3:00pm/et is NOT on live TV but can be heard on MRN via the radio or the Internet. TNN will show qualifying Saturday morning at 9:00am/et tape delayed(6-16-2000)

  • How to break a tie during qualifying? When drivers are tied for a starting spot during qualifying, it is broken by owners points standings(not drivers). For provisionals standings see the Jayski Provisional Status page(2-20-2000)

TRACK/RACE NEWS

  • Pocono Rain Info: It was the first time that a NASCAR event at Pocono has been postponed by rain and moved to Monday since the Coca-Cola 500 in July 1979(and only the second time ever). Cale Yarborough wound up winning the race ahead of Richard Petty and Buddy Baker. Three drivers who will compete in today's Pocono 500 also competed in that race. Ricky Rudd finished fifth, while a pair of rookies -- Terry Labonte and Dale Earnhardt -- finished 23rd and 29th respectively. There have been three instances at Pocono where races were shortened by rain. The first NASCAR race there in August 1974 was shortened to 480 miles (192 of 200 laps). Only 375 miles (150 of 200 laps) were completed in the July 1986 event. In July 1991, the race was shortened to 447 miles(179 of 200 laps)(Times-Tribune)(6-19-2000)

  • 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)
