WCUP: Buckshot Jones - Track Notes from Talladega

22 April 1999

   IMG Motorsports-Charlotte
   Buckshot Jones Track Notes
   Talladega Superspeedway



"I started racing on short tracks, so getting the chance to compete on
superspeedways on the NASCAR Busch and Winston Cup Series has been a welcome
change.  I think I like these tracks because not only are they physically
demanding, but they challenge the driver mentally.  Each driver must think
about each move he makes, because one mistake can be the end to his day." 
- Buckshot Jones, driver of the No.00 Crown Fiber Communications Pontiac

The Buckshot Racing team tested at Talladega Superspeedway in April and
Jones had this to say about the test session:  "We didnít make the first
race of the year at Daytona because the front clip on the car was off and I
think weíve learned from that experience.  The test session went well, but
we still need to get faster.  I think we have a good starting point for the
weekend."

Unlike most tracks this year, Jones has experience in a Winston Cup car at
Talladega Superspeedway.  He qualified 11th and finished 16th in the 1998
Winston 500 when he was filling in as driver for the Stavola Bros. Racing
Team.

Jones will be signing autographs at the 14th Annual Race Fever Night at
Talladega Superspeedway at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 23.
