Busch Series To Join Pepsi 400 Weekend In 2002

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., (Aug. 13, 2001) -- The NASCAR Busch Series, Grand National Division kicks off its season in February with a 300-mile race during Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, the circuit's richest and most prestigious event.

In 2002, the Busch Series will make a second stop at the "World Center of Racing" serving as a companion event to the 44th annual Pepsi 400 on July 6. The 250-mile, 100-lap race will be held on Friday, July 5 and will share the night with the final Winston Cup Series practice session nicknamed "Happy Hour."

"Having the Busch Series race is a great addition to the Pepsi 400 weekend," Speedway President John Graham said. "The combination of the Winston Cup Series and the Busch Series in July at Daytona gives us an event schedule second only to Speedweeks in February."

Fans can purchase their tickets for the 44th annual Daytona 500 on Feb. 17, 2001 and next year's Pepsi 400 weekend online at http://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling the Speedway ticket office at (386) 253-7223.
