Jarrett, Marcis test Goodyear tires at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 22, 1998) Two-time Daytona 500 champion Dale Jarrett and veteran NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver Dave Marcis, who started his 31st straight Daytona 500 in February, opened a two-day test session conducted by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Tuesday at Daytona International Speedway.

The pair's track time was severely limited by scattered day-long rain showers. The pair may be joined on Wednesday by seven-time NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion and 1998 Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt, who had other commitments on Tuesday.

The test was scheduled in preparation for next year's 41st running of the "Great American Race." Earnhardt is the race's defending champion while Jarrett captured NASCAR's biggest prize in 1993 and '96.

A section of the Oldfield Grandstand is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT for test sessions at no charge with access through DAYTONA USA, "The Ultimate Motorsports Attraction."
