Atlanta Race Results
March 14th, 2004

  • Why no points for Todd Bodine and the #98 car? been asked why Todd Bodine got no drivers points for the race at Atlanta and the #98 Team got no owners points - they were classified by NASCAR as being 'Post Entry' [PE]. What does that mean? what it means is that a driver/owner is not eligible for any points as the race entry blank was received after the deadline which is normally 13 days before the race date.(3-17-2004)
