Buckshot Jones Track Notes Michigan Speedway

"Michigan is a fun track to race, but it's a tough place to qualify. I've been listening to some other drivers like Ken Schrader talk about qualifying there and they agree that it's tough. Once you start racing, you can judge where other drivers are running and find what's comfortable for you. It has a lot of room to pass which makes for some good racing, so I'm looking forward to it" - Buckshot Jones, driver of the No.00 Crown Fiber Communications Pontiac

Equipment Jones will be competing at Michigan Speedway with the same car he qualified 18th with at Lowe's Motor Speedway in May.

Sponsor for the Weekend The Buckshot Racing team will have Cheez-It® on the Winston Cup car as a primary sponsor this weekend.
