Team Target finishes 28th in Michigan.
Spencer remains 21st in NASCAR Winston Cup championship points.

BROOKLYN, Mich. (June 16, 2002) - The No. 41 Target Dodge Intrepid R/T driven by Jimmy Spencer finished in 28th place in the Sirius Satellite Radio 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Spencer remains in 21st position in NASCAR Winston Cup championship points; he is 16 points behind Bobby Labonte who is currently in 20th place.

The Target Dodge started the 200-lap event in 13th position, but Spencer radioed in within the first 20 laps stating that his car was tight in the middle of the corner off. Prior to the first pit stop, Spencer dropped back to racing between 20th and 25th positions. Team Target made spring rubber adjustments during the first two pit stops.

Spencer made up ground by taking a two-tire pit stop on lap 117 and gained five positions to restart in 15th position, but eventually fell back due to an ill-handling car. Spencer continued to run in the top-30 for the remainder of the race before taking the checkered flag in 28th place, two laps down to the leader.

Next on the schedule for the No. 41 Target team is the Dodge/Save Mart 350 at Sears Point Raceway on June 23, 2002.
