Jeff Green Joins Record-Field In Budweiser Shootout At Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (Aug. 27, 2001) -- Jeff Green, driving a limited Winston Cup schedule in the No. 30 AOL Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing before going full time next season, qualified for the 2002 Budweiser Shootout at Daytona on Feb. 10.

Green, the driver of the No. 10 NesQuik Ford in the Busch Series, won his first Bud Pole award in 55 Winston Cup starts on Friday at Bristol, Tenn. He turned a fast lap of 15.515 seconds, 123.674 mph.

The 2000 Busch Series champion now becomes the 19th driver qualified to date for the Budweiser Shootout, which kicks off the 2002 NASCAR Winston Cup Series season.

If all 19 drivers choose to participate in the 2002 Budweiser Shootout, it would set a record for most starters in the field since the inception of the event in 1979. The previous mark was 18 drivers, set in last year's Budweiser Shootout.
