Buckshot Jones Track Notes Indianapolis Motor Speedway

"After having a successful test session at the track we feel really good about going back to compete. This year has been a challenge for us both on and off the racetrack and qualifying and running well here would give us the momentum we need to run strong for the remainder of the season." - Buckshot Jones, driver of the No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac

o The Buckshot Racing team tested at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Jones posted the quickest lap overall for the GM cars with a time of 50.448 seconds and a speed of 178.402 mph.

o Jones qualified 15th for his first Brickyard 400 in 1998 while temporarily filling in as driver for the Stavola Brothers race team. In addition to running the Brickyard 400 last year, Jones also claimed the pole position at Indianapolis Raceway Park that same weekend. Jones finished 27th at IMS and third at IRP.

o As well as competing in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Jones will again pull double duty and compete in the Kroger 200 NASCAR Busch Series race at Indianapolis Raceway Park in the No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac. Jones will be transported by helicopter between the two tracks for practice and qualifying.

o The Buckshot Racing team will receive some guidance this weekend at IMS from Indy legend Pancho Carter. Carter helped Jones out in 1998 and went to the test with the team in July.
