After two rain delays it looks like Lime Rock Park will finally get to run the 1995 NASCAR Busch North finale, the Burnham Boilers/Dodge Dealers NASCAR 200. The series finale comes down to a 2 car battle for the title, between point leader Kelly Moore and Mike Stefanik. Moore goes into the final race with a 74 point lead. A finish of 18th or higher guarantees him the title. A nineteenth place finish by Moore combined with a win by Stefanik would result in a tie, and Stefanik would then get the nod with more victories. There are are wide range of other combinations that could be title deciders as well. Moore has had mixed-fortunes as far as road racing efforts. Last year at Lime Rock he was fast qualifier but crashed out of the race on lap 2, and this year at Watkins Glen Moore again was an early out. Stefanik by contrast finished 7th last year at LRP and nearly won this years WGI race. Of course there are 35 other drivers also carrying aspirations for a trip to victory lane. Saturday's program will open with a brief warm-up session around 9 a.m., line-up at 11:30 and a scheduled start at noon forthe 82 lap 200km/125mile race. The forecast is for dry but cool conditions -- pack your ski jacket, hat and gloves for the last chance that New England race fans will have to see live NASCAR racing before a long cold winter. The Lime Rock Park road-race circuit is located in northwestern Connecticut on route 112 . For ticket information and other details call Lime Rock Park at 1800RACELRP. Greg Rickes
