NASCAR Fans Mail List 2/17/97

Happy Presidents Day! Not for some. NASCAR levied Fines of $5000 and $2000 to Jeremy Mayfield and Johnny Benson for Roll Bars being to light. If you remember this same fine was handed to several drivers last year. This is the second time that this violation has been caught and these fines were steep because NASCAR wanted to send a message.....FIX IT!

Everyone was fine in all the incidents at Daytona. This included several drivers and fans. The hood that went into the crowd off of Ernie Irvans car hit two people, breaking ones arm and injuring the knee of another. Both were o.k. when taken to the infield hospital. To show what kind of class guys are in NASCAR, Dale Jarrett and Ernie Irvan went to the infield care center to check on and say there sorry to the fans that were injured.

That is news for the day. Later in the week we will do stats and best drivers for Rockingham. ____________________________________ NASCAR Fans Website and E-mail List http://www.cs.mtsu.edu/~csvlh
