  • Sadler wins pole at Talladega, Harvicks time disallowed: #38-Elliott Sadler won the Budweiser Pole for the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega Superspeedway with a fast lap of 189.260mph for his 3rd pole of 2005, 2nd at Talladega and 5th of his career. #29-Kevin Harvick WAS to start 2nd but the overflow tube for the fuel tank was missing and NASCAR disallowed Harvick's run and will start 42nd now. So, #88-Dale Jarrett will start 2nd followed by #12-Ryan Newman [best starting Chaser], #20-Tony Stewart and #01-Joe Nemechek. Points leader #48-Jimmie Johnso will start 9th, 2nd in points, #2-Rusty Wallace lost an engine during his 1st qualifying lap and will start 41st and then from the back after changing the engine. #8-Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start 20th. #1-Martin Truex Jr. was the highest non top-35 team, who had to get in based on speed, qualifying 17th. #32-Bobby Hamilton Jr., who was fast in practice failed to qualify for the race, along with #09-Sauter and #89-Shepherd.(9-30-2005)

  • NASCAR comment on Harvick's qualifying run being disallowed: NASCAR spokesman, Jim Hunter, addressed the media following qualifying with the following comment: "The No. 29 car's qualifying time has been disallowed. He (Harvick) will start Sunday's race from the rear. There were a couple of things in the rear area of the car did not comply with post-qualifying inspection. The trunk area was not sealed properly. It was not vented to the outside as prescribed in the rulebook. The shock doors inside the trunk area were opened and not secured. So there were several violations in the trunk area of the car. So there will probably be penalties coming out the first of the week. But that's why."(GM Racing PR)(9-30-2005)

  • #00 Team Note; been told the #00 is the #192, being allowed to use the #00 number with Mike Skinner driving and the #192 Front Row racing team getting the owners points and the credit for the race attempt, allowing them to keep the full season race attempts streak alive. #192 [#92] has run many drivers in 2005, Stanton Barrett, Tony Raines, Hermie Sadler, Eric McClure among others.(9-30-2005)
