Practice this morning had no incidents. Cars that look good are Bill Elliott, Geoff Bodine, and Jimmy Spencer.

Word from the track.... Mark Martin is highly upset with Mike Skinner. He said that he "drug" Mike Skinner from the back of the Feild to the front of the twin 125's and then Skinner hung him out to dry. He said "It will be a cold day in hell before I draft with him again".

Bill Elliott looks good in the 500. In the Twin 125's his car was gaining while all the others were falling off. If this holds true for the 500 and Pit Stops fall his way look for him to be there at the end. He has teamed up with Jeff Gordon in practice today and word is that together they are really fast.

Geoff Bodine was fast before his incident in the twin 125's and I think he would have had a good run at the end if he'd have been there. He is having his engines built this year by Bob Glidden. Sound familiar, it should he is an engine builder in the NHRA ranks. Look for Bodine to fair very well at Daytona.

This could be the final mailing before Daytona and if it is then I wish everyone's driver luck and most of all safety. More after the 1997 season begins! LETS GO RACING!
