In three Busch Series starts at Nashville, Jones has posted three top-15 finishes and completed 100 percent of the total laps run at Nashville Speedway.

The first time Jones competed at Nashville Speedway was with the NASCAR Slim Jim All-Pro Series in 1994. That particular weekend proved to be pretty costly as Buckshot crashed both cars the team brought to the track. The first accident occurred during practice and the second during the race.

Brit Knowles, gasman for the No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac, will celebrate a birthday on Sunday, April 9. When he is not at the track, Brit works as a Motorcycle officer for the Dekalb County (GA) Police Department.

"The first time I raced at Nashville was in a Slim Jim All-Pro car. From the moment I saw the track I knew we would like it there. For the most part, Nashville Speedway and I have gotten along pretty well together. It's a shame to know that this might be the last race for us (Busch Series) at this old track."

"You need to have a solid qualifying run at Nashville because track position is everything. It's your typical short track where passing comes at a premium and where tire management also plays a role. The tire situation is nothing like Darlington or Rockingham but you better keep an eye on it." --Buckshot Jones, driver of the No. 00 Cheez-It Pontiac.
