Buckshot Jones Track Notes Lowe's Motor Speedway Coca-Cola 600

"We learned a lot a last weekend trying to qualify for The Winston that we can use this weekend in the Coca-Cola 600. We didn't get to run at night when we tested here, so having the chance to do that helped us figure out what will work and what won't work. This is a long race, but since it's a night race and it will be cooler, that will be an advantage for us." - Buckshot Jones, driver of the No.00 Crown Fiber Communications Pontiac The No.00 Crown Fiber Communications Pontiac Jones is bringing to the Coca-Cola 600 is the same car he qualified seventh with at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March of this year. "We tested at Charlotte, but the test session was cut short," said Jones. "Being able to participate in the Winston Open allowed us to get some more experience on this track in a Winston Cup car. Charlotte is a track that changes along with the weather and temperature, so having that extra time on the track has been a big help for us." General Manager Ricky Pearson's father, David Pearson, holds the record for most poles at Lowe's Motor Speedway. He claimed 14 poles in his career, 11 of them consecutively from the fall of 1973 to the fall of 1978.
