PREVIEW, FACT SHEETS and MISC News

  • Provisonals Rules changed a bit: NASCAR Officials announced this week that teams in the Cup and BGN will not be charged for using a provisional starting position if the entry field for an event is equal to or less than the number of starting positions provided by the official entry blank.[such as 43 at a Cup race]. A team is granted a maximum season allotment of eight provisionals [charged provisional, if not in the top 25 in Owners Points] and under this amendment, provisionals assigned to fill starting positions 37-43 will not count against this allotment. Prior to this amendment, teams were charged for a provisional regardless of the number of entries at an event.(NASCAR.com). For more info on provisionals, see my Provisionals Status page.(3-21-2002)

  • New Pit Road Rules: NASCAR will change its policies for speeding violations on pit road following confusion over an infraction for which eventual race-winner Sterling Marlin was never penalized a week ago at Las Vegas. NASCAR president Mike Helton announced the changes Sunday morning at the drivers’ meeting prior to the MBNA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The new rules go into effect next weekend at Darlington Raceway. The key change is that, under green-flag conditions, the penalty for speeding on the way onto pit road will now be the same as the penalty for speeding off the pit lane. The new penalty will be what NASCAR is calling a “pass through,” meaning the offending car will have to come off the track and travel the length of pit road at its speed limit without stopping. Under the old rule, a car speeding on the way onto pit road during a green-flag stop was held for 15 seconds in its pit stall. A car speeding off pit road was brought back to its pit box for a stop-and-go penalty. During last week’s UAW 400 at Las Vegas, NASCAR officials said Marlin was speeding as he came to his pit stall after being spun out in Turn 4. NASCAR’s race control officials called for the 15-second penalty, but that message was not heard by the official working in Marlin’s pit stall. Marlin left without serving a penalty and NASCAR decided not to enforce any further sanction, saying that bringing Marlin back to pit road would be too severe of a penalty. Since the usual penalty for speeding on the exit to pit lane was to bring a car back in for a stop-and-go, that raised the question of why the sanction for speeding on the way out should be more severe for speeding on the way in. The rule change announced Sunday addresses that issue. Helton admitted Sunday that not giving Marlin a penalty last week might not have been the right decision. Helton said the change was made to avoid the kind of confusion and miscommunication that happened at Las Vegas. Under the rule that goes into effect next week, a driver speeding on the way in and on the way out on the same pit stop will be brought back in for a stop-and-go penalty. A driver who exceeds the pit road speed limit as he serves the “pass through” penalty for speeding will also get a stop-and-go. The penalty for speeding in or out of a pit stop made under yellow-flag conditions will not change - the offending car will be sent to the end of the longest line of traffic for the restart.()(3-10-2002)

  • Rudd to the back - engine change: Ricky Rudd's road to a repeat victory at Pocono won't be easy since his team changed engines Saturday, forcing him to start at the rear of the field.(Roanoke Times)(6-9-2002)

  • Happy Hour Practice for the Cup drivers at Pocono is over. It will be televised via tape on FX at 6:30pm/et tonight before the BGN race [at Nashville]. #6-Martin was the fastest at 165.755 followed by #28-Rudd at 165.441.

    See for Speeds from Saturday's first practice.(6-8-2002)

  • Track Dry at Pocono: The track is dry, it's partly cloudy and Sterling Marlin is atop the speed chart at Pocono Raceway in Saturday morning's first Winston Cup practice as teams get ready for Sunday's Pocono 500. Marlin, the pole winner by virtue of his place in the point standings, posted a lap at 166.636 mph. Water seeping onto the track surface after nearly a week of heavy rains at Long, Pond, Pa., scuttled Friday's schedule. Practice, then qualifying were canceled. Crews worked overnight to get the track into running shape and NASCAR officials say everything is on schedule for Saturday. There will be another Cup practice and an ARCA series event is set for 1:00pm/et.()(6-8-2002)

  • Wet Track/Seepage - qualifying cancelled - lineup by points: water seepage on the Pocono Raceway has cancelled Winston Cup practice [NASCAR rules state that a practice session must be run before qualifying can be held] and qualifying, ARCA and Cup cars will practice Saturday morning, the 43 Cup cars will be lined up per OWNER POINTS and the rule book:

    #1) - First 35 by current Owner Points - see my Provisional Page for Owners Standings for the top 35 (note, there is an error in my page, I have the #11 with three more points then NASCAR, will clear it up later)
    #2) - Race winners from the previous and current season not already in the field (none for Pocono)
    #3) - Past Winston Cup Champions not in by 1 and 2 (none for Pocono)
    #4) - Qualifying Attempts with Owners points as the tie breaker - which will be 36 thru 43:

    36)  #7-Atwood
    37)  #36-Schrader
    38)  #11-Brett Bodine
    39)  #14-Compton
    40)  #26-Todd Bodine
    41)  #90-Hermie Sadler
    42)  #85-Long
    43)  #46-Kimmel
    Starting first will be #40-Sterling Marlin and 2nd will be #48-Jimmie Johnson.

    BUT for some reason, NASCAR.com and has a different order, starting at 36th
    36)  #11-Brett Bodine (38th in owners points 1000 points)
    then the following using provisionals (??)
    37)  #7-Atwood (36th in owners points 1006)
    38)  #36-Schrader (37th in owners points 1002)
    39)  #26-Todd Bodine (40th in owners points 936)
    40)  #14-Compton (39th in owners points 938)
    41)  #90-Hermie Sadler (41st in owners points 733)
    42)  #85-Long (54th)
    43)  #46-Kimmel (no owners points)
    no clue why the change, hadn't heard of any rules changes
    For starting Lineups see /AP or NASCAR.com or MotorsportsOne.(6-7-2002)

  • Entry List for the Pocono 500 is up UPDATEs up to 43. See above for the link. Only 41 cars/drivers are listed. So all will make the race and have no provisionals charged to them if used. The last time a Cup race ran with less then 43 (besides New Hampshire last Nov) was the Oct Talladega race in 1997 when there were 42 (but more then 43 teams showed up, the fields in 1997 were 42 cars with the 43rd saved for the past champion provisional or Winston West drivers) and the first short field since Dover in Sept 1996 when 41 cars showed up.(6-5-2002)
    UPDATE: make it 42, #85 Carl Long will run the race.(6-7-2002)
    UPDATE 2: make it 43 as ARCA champ is entered in the #46 Advance Auto Part Ford, so no short field.(6-7-2002)

  • How to break a tie during qualifying?(same speed/time) 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's Provisional Status page

  • an interesting point: When NASCAR officials decided to disallow Jerry Nadeau's qualifying time at Daytona in Feb 2001, it raised an interesting question. With the Winston Cup series having only one round of qualifying the rest of the season, what happens if an unapproved part is found? According to NASCAR, drivers no longer have to post an official qualifying time to use a provisional, they only have to practice. So a driver could have a penalty on a qualifying issue but still have access to one of the seven provisionals for the race(Richmond Times Dispatch)(2-11-2001)

TRACK/RACE NEWS

  • Friday Tickets Holders get a break: Pocono Raceway officials said that fans with ticket stubs from yesterday have two options. They can get a $10 discount for today's action - two Winston Cup practice sessions, beginning at 9:15 a. m. and the Pocono ARCA 200, which begins at 1 p.m. Or they can use the ticket for admission to the pole qualifying session on July 26 as Pocono prepares to host its second Winston Cup race of the season on July 28.(Philadelphia Inquier)(6-8-2002)

  • Coolers at Pocono: haven't seen anything on this, but heard that Pocono Raceway is allowing 12" x 12" coolers (no glass) and no need for plastic bages ie: you can take in a camera bag.(6-5-2002)

  • Pocono Lottery Finalists: Cecelia Auerbeck, Tammy Blankenship, Thomas Jackson, Evelyn Marburger, and Raymond Petrosky tickets were drawn as Grand Prize finalists, each being one of five winners of an all-expense paid trip to the Pocono 500 for the Pennsylvania Lottery's CASH 5 NASCAR(R) Weekends at Pocono drawing. The five finalists were selected from entry tickets that were generated when players purchased a $5 block of CASH 5 tickets and submitted those entry tickets into a random drawing. Each of the five finalists will receive $5,000 and a raceway accommodations package for two that includes raceway tickets, superbox seating and pit passes for three days of NASCAR(R) events held at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond; track tour; three-day, four-night hotel accommodations; transportation between the track and hotel; meals and beverages. There will be a Grand Prize event during the Pocono 500 pre-race ceremonies. The Grand Prize winner will be announced at the finish line at the track and will win an additional $15,000, bringing the Grand Prize winner's total to $20,000. Entry tickets for the two CASH 5 NASCAR(R) Weekends at Pocono drawings are generated from April 8 through and including June 26, 2002. Lottery players still can enter the drawing for the upcoming Pennsylvania 500 Race Weekend at Pocono Raceway in July, see my Racing Contests page for more info.(Business Wire)(6-6-2002)

  • Pocono and the Lottery: The Pennsylvania Lottery will return to Pocono Raceway in 2002 as a sponsor for its two NASCAR® Winston Cup Series races, the Pocono 500 and the Pennsylvania 500. And, again this year, the Lottery will select a total of five lucky finalists and their guests to attend each race weekend (a total of 10 finalists and 10 guests in all) and to have a chance to win up to $20,000. See more on the Racing Contest page.(4-18-2002)

  • Pocono, funding and better access: A plan to improve highway access to Pocono International Raceway won more federal money this year than a widely supported project to restore passenger rail service to the Poconos did in the last three. At $3 million, the raceway project is the most expensive Pennsylvania highway work specifically mentioned in the 2002 transportation appropriations bill, which Congress approved in December. The same bill set aside $1 million for the rail project. The racetrack’s proposed ramps from Interstate 80 at Stoney Hollow Road would be used two weekends a year, when up to 150,000 people converge on the privately owned track at Long Pond for NASCAR races. Racetrack owner Joseph Mattioli said he asked Monroe County’s two congressmen “if they would help us down in Washington” getting federal money toward the $12 million highway ramps.(more at The Morning Call)(2-4-2002)

  • 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

DRIVER/TEAM NEWS

  • Wallace has a broken foot: What was thought to be fractured toes on #2-Rusty Wallace's left foot after his wreck in The Winston, has now been diagnosed as a broken foot. Wallace thought he cracked three toes when he collided with Dale Jarrett during the Winston at Lowe's on May 18. While filming some commercials for the 2003 Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Wednesday, Wallace started to feel extreme discomfort on the top part of his foot, after X-rays it was found that Wallace found out that two bones on the top of his foot were broken. Although Wallace said he can still drive the car, he feels discomfort after extended periods of walking. But Wallace isn't thinking about sitting out a race. Pocono Raceway and Michigan International Speedway don't require the use of the left foot as much as other tracks. However, the Sears Point race on June 23 could be a problem. One of two road courses on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series circuit, its 11 turns require shifting and heavy braking -- and use of the left foot more than other tracks.(NASCAR.com)(6-7-2002)

  • Long coming to Pocono: Carl Long will be going to Pocono this weekend to race in the Pocono 500 at Pocono Raceway. The team decided to go to the track because of the low car count for the race. Only 42 teams now with the #85 team going will be attempting the race, which will put everyone in the field.(Carl Long Racing site)(6-7-2002)

  • Benson back at Pocono...to test at VIR UPDATE passes test: #10 Valvoline Pontiac driver Johnny Benson and his teammates will test both their road course car and Benson’s health on Tuesday at the Virginia International Raceway. After the road course test the team will go to Pocono International Raceway where Benson makes his return to the NASCAR Winston Cup Circuit. Benson has not raced since he sustained one broken and two cracked ribs in a May 3 Busch Series race at Richmond International Raceway. Benson said he feels better everyday and has no doubts he’ll be able to race the full 500 miles at Pocono. Jerry Nadeau substituted for Benson during his recovery posting a 28th place finish at Charlotte and a 27th-place finish at Dover.(MBV PR)(6-3-2002)
    UPDATE: Johnny Benson reported the only pain he felt during his daylong test at Virginia International Raceway Tuesday came when he climbed into and out of the car. Driving on the twisty course was not a problem and shouldn't be for Pocono this weekend when Benson makes his first appearance in a race car since he broke a rib and cracked two others in a May 3 Busch Series race in Richmond, Va. Joe Nemechek substituted for Benson at Richmond finishing 12th while Jerry Nadeau posted 28th and 27th place finishes at Charlotte and Dover. Benson spent all three races he sat out watching from the team's pit box with Crew Chief James Ince.(MBV PR)(6-5-2002)

  • #90 Driver at Dover? UPDATE 2: Junie Donlavey hasn't decided who is driving his car [#90 Dukes Mayo Ford] at Dover next weekend. Rick Mast will miss another week of action while continuing to take medical tests to determine the cause of his recent fatigue and weight loss. Donlavey is meeting with sponsor representatives tomorrow to determine the driver for Sunday's event.(Richmond Times Dispatch). Hermie Sadler finished 29th after starting 41st at Lowes.(5-27-2002)
    UPDATE: being told Hermie Sadler will be in the #90 Ford at Dover and the following weekend at Pocono.(5-28-2002)
    UPDATE 2: Hermie Sadler will drive the #90 Donlavey Racing Ford in the MBNA Platinum 400 at Dover International Speedway this Sunday and in the Pocono 500 at Pocono Raceway on June 9. Sadler finished 29th in the Coca-Cola Racing Family 600 in his first assignment for Donlavey Racing this past Sunday. Sadler is temporarily spelling Rick Mast, who is ill. Sadler is the 72nd driver to have qualified for a Winston Cup event for legendary team owner Junie Donlavey.(Keystone Marketing PR)(5-30-2002)
