Short Track Racin'...If there's one thing that Stanley driver Tim Fedewa loves, it's gearing up for a little short track action. The one-time short track champion can't wait for races like Bristol, South Boston and Richmond. "The racing is action-packed at these smaller tracks," Fedewa said. "You never really know what is going to happen, and you really have to be on top of your game. It doesn't matter if you're in last place on the track or in first place, if you're not at the height of your game you could get washed up in an accident in a snap. The fans will always get a good show at Richmond."

Looking for Lady Luck ... Fedewa's qualifying effort for the spring race in Richmond was just what the doctor ordered for a Stanley team that had encountered some stumbling blocks early on in the season. Fedewa and the Stanley team started the race in third position, but their luck went south on a pit stop when the No. 36 car rolled over the jack. He finished in 20th place. Fedewa hopes that Lady Luck will be smiling on him again at Richmond International Raceway. "We're in the final stretch of the season now, and I'd like for the Stanley team to finish up on a good note," he said. "I'm hoping to leave Richmond with a top 10 and get some luck rolling our way in these final few races. I'd really like to send Stanley out on a good note." Fedewa's career best finish at Richmond is a ninth-place finish in 1994 and 1997.

The Stanley Racing Machine...The No. 36 car on track this weekend has been lucky for Fedewa and the Stanley team this year. Fedewa sat on the outside pole at Nashville in this car, and he finished 10th with this car in Pikes Peak in July. It's also the same car that Fedewa won from the pole with at New Hampshire International Speedway. Who Wants To Be A Tool Winner? Godwin Kelly of The Daytona Beach News-Journal was the winner of the weekly "Who Wants To Be A Tool Winner?" Stanley Sweepstakes 2000 last weekend. Don't forget to pick up an entry form and guess where the No. 36 team will finish this weekend in Richmond. <pre>
