*** News and Notes***

Qualifying today.  NASCAR Fans website and Mail list will have practice
results and qualifying results from Rockingham.  I apologize for the lack of
coverage by myself lately.  I'm in a very busy point in the year.

Look for rain to be a good possibility for the weekend. It is the time of year for it. In Tennessee today we are experiencing showers off and on and usually NC gets typically the same type of weather.

Haven't made a decision on live qualifying coverage for the day on the website. I suppose if I got the response to cover it live, I could. It's your call.

**** Interesting Notes:

If the averages hold true, this could be a good race for Mark Martin and Dale Jarrett. With Gordon holding a slim 110 point lead, the averages above show that both Jarrett and Martin could eat into it before Phoenix.

We are at another track that Dale Earnhardt does well at. He has been close lately and looked as if he had a car that could win in Talladega before the big wreck.
