Saturday Re-schedule date not arbitrary

The fact that the Winston Cup Talladega Race was by design. If the race had been moved to Sunday it would have fell on Mothers Day. Winston Cup drivers really didn't want the race to conflict so Saturday was the next best option. Kyle Petty once said, "Father's Day is like any other Sunday, but in the South, Mother's Day is a national holiday." ``It's good to have a weekend off for the crews, but I think if you took a vote, the race fans would say, `Let's race,''' said Geoff Bodine, who will start 19th in Saturday's race. ``But there are certain days I think we should honor, and one of them is Mother's Day.'' So lets go racing, but not on Mom's Day.

Driver in praise of California Track

NASCAR drivers have now had a chance to test the new track in California built by Roger Penske. The reviews of the track so far are great. It looks like from initial indications that the track may provide some of the best racing this year. Drivers are reaching speeds with race setups in the 188 speed and are saying that you don't have to work to keep the cars three wide. This is a far cry from the debut of the new Texas speedway.
