ANDREWS COLLECTS FIRST BUSCH EAST WIN AT DOVER
DOVER, Del. (Sept. 24, 2006) -- Tim Andrews passed Steve Park with two laps remaining, then held off Park's final bid as Andrews won the Sunoco 150 NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch East Series race at Dover International Speedway.
Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for the Grand National Division, which includes the AutoZone West Series. The two series use the same line of Goodyear Eagle bias-ply tires.
Andrews passed Park with two laps left to go but a caution flag allowed the field to line the field up for a restart and Park had one last chance to pass Andrews. Andrews held on to win his first career Busch East victory. It was a great race to win. The Busch East race was part of the Nextel Cup weekend at Dover and came in front of a large crowd.
Park finished second among the 30 starters, followed by Bryon Chew, Matt Kobyluck and Mike Olsen. The winner averaged 86.887 mph.
Sean Caisse, who is bidding to win the 2006 Busch East title, set a track record in qualifying. He averaged 152.782 mph.
Olsen leads the title hunt with 1,653 points. Caisse has 1,544.
