Jerry Nadeau was watching when Jeremy Mayfield made his bump-and-run move on Dale Earnhardt to win the last NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, but he isn't sure if he would make the same move in his MichaelHoligan.com Chevrolet.

"Just as long as I had a lot of people on pit road waiting for me to help me out, I might have done the same thing. Who knows? Dale's never really done anything to me, but everybody knows he's the Intimidator. He's aggressive and he'll do whatever it takes to win a race. I don't know -- I'd have to see. If I ever get in that position, then I'll make that call."

Tony Furr, crew chief of the No. 25 MichaelHoligan.com Chevrolet, has had success at Pocono Raceway, so he naturally enjoys returning to the Pennsylvania track.

"I get excited at every track, because I feel like I can win with Jerry, especially during the second half of the year with the experience he's gained and the way the team is coming together. Every track we go back to, we're going to have a chance at really doing well or possibly even winning. Pocono happens to be one of the tracks where I've always run well, so maybe this will be our first win."

Culinary Tip of the Week: Nadeau's motorcoach driver, John "Viggy" Vignona is a connoisseur of the restaurants near each of the NASCAR Winston Cup Series tracks. The Long Island, N.Y., native recommends Pizza Como on the corner of Routes 115 and 940 near Pocono Raceway.

"Their foot-long Chicken Parmesan sandwich is unbelievable," Vignona said. "The sauce is spicy, the chicken is fresh and it's a meal to last the whole day."
