NASCAR GOODY'S DASH NOTE

ERNIE YARBOROUGH (No. 93* Yarborough/Bush Motorsports Ford) -- (Of the five drivers who dominated NASCAR Winston Cup competition in the mid-Seventies, four of them -- Richard Petty, David Pearson, Buddy Baker and Bobby Allison -- had sons who competed in NASCAR racing. While Cale Yarborough had no sons, now the legacy of the three-time NASCAR Winston Cup champion and four-time Daytona 500 winner is being continued at Daytona with the debut of his nephew, who will make his Daytona International Speedway debut starting 23rd in Friday's Discount Auto Parts 200. He will drive the No. 93 Yarborough and Bush Motorsports Ford.) "It's exciting to be at Daytona. I've talked with Cale a good bit lately, especially being down here on a superspeedway. I've been racing for about four years now. Being at Daytona is my first chance being on a track bigger than a half mile. I've got a good man to go to if I want some advice. Obviously, I'm a big Cale Yarborough fan -- he's something else. I've been going to the track with Cale since I was probably five or six years old. In fact, I was on the cover of the program at Darlington in 1978, sitting on the car with him when he won. I've been groomed for this -- I'm ready. I really want to keep doing this. We don't have any kind of sponsorship right now -- we're running on our own budget. If we could get some sponsorship, Cale would come along and help us, too. It would be a lot of publicity for a company. We plan on running as many NASCAR Goody's Dash races as we can -- we'd like to run the whole season. We ran three races last year, two at Florence and one at Greenville-Pickens."
