NASCARFans E-Mail Newsletter ===== In another NASCAR-related mailing list, I read where someone was complaining about no one giving them the number of days left until Daytona. We aim to please here at NASCARFans, so:

59 days and counting 'til the Bud Shootout 66 days and counting 'til the Daytona 500

I'll try to include this in ALL the posts from now until February, just to drive you crazy. ===== One of our readers sent me this. I quote:

"HI Mike. I work with several of the (Winston) Cup teams, who have told me that the new heads for GM will not be ready by Daytona. Seems the first run of legal heads had casting problems & they are just getting heads that they can use, but they still have to machine & test." (Thanks to "you know who you are")

I dunno, this may or may not be a problem. Indications are that the Ford teams will be ironing out problems with the Taurus body, so it may be an advantage to the GM teams to be using the same head they're used to. We'll see in February, eh? ===== Birthdays for December

Birthdays taken from Winston Cup Scene, 11/27 edition ===== Not much else going on, although I heard the Kansas City 1.5 mile superspeedway deal was signed . Haven't seen it anywhere other than an e-mail list. PLEASE don't bombard me with e-mails about it. Thanks! ===== Mike Irwin (mailto:Mike@NASCARFans.Com) NASCARFans _______________________________________
