Rules Change for Ford

It seems all the lobbying that Ford did at the Winston has paid off. NASCAR announced late Monday that Ford will be allowed another 1/4" on the rear spoiler. The decision raised the rear spoilers on the Fords back to 5 3/4 inches, countering a move made prior to the April 6 Interstate Batteries 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, when the rear spoiler on the Fords were reduced to 5 1/2 inches. In the five races since the last rule change, Ford has collected three wins -- two on superspeedways and one on a road course.

Jeff Green replaces Robert Pressley

Robert Pressley has been released from the Diamond Ridge Racing team following The Winston Open last weekend, and Jeff Green has been named as Pressley's replacement starting with this weekend's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte. Green is also the full time driver for the Dimond Ridge racing Busch Series team. Pressley is 40th in the point standings and has failed to qualify for three Winston Cup races this season, most recently at Sears Point. No word on how permanant the move is.

Atlanta Motor Speedway improvements continue

Atlanta is well underway with it new constuction efforts. They are of course tranforming the Oval into a 1.54 mile Quad-Oval much the same shape as Charlotte. The decision has been made to also re-pave the entire track.
