Here is some information from Angie concerning a very large bone marrow/blood drive:

The goal is 10,000 for one week in the Fayetteville, NC area. Location is Holiday Inn Bordeaux in Fayetteville, NC starting July 28th and ending August 1st. Times are 9:00am-6:00pm. On August 2 there will be a bone marrow drive at 5 different locations times are 10:00am-4:00pm 1-Holiday Inn Bordeaux 2-Methodist College 3-Fayettevill State University 4-Fayetteville Technical Community College 5- LOOK IN THE LOCAL PAPER FOR THIS SITE I have been told that if they succeed in getting the 10,000 donors in a week it will be the largest goal achieved in the country.

There will also be blood drives at some of these locations during the week. If you live in or around this area please stop by and donate. We are in great need for blood and bone marrow donors and yours would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Angie, our "bone marrow" correspondent <grin> We appreciate the information, and those who benefit from the marrow and blood definately appreciate it.

Ernie Irvan, Cale Yarborough, and Jeremy Mayfield were at the Lawrenceburg (Indiana) Speedway on Thursday, July 24 (Lawrenceburg is not very far from Cincinnati, where I live, and where Netcrafters, who provide NASCARFans' web site are located). They raced small modifieds around the less than a mile long dirt track in front of packed grandstands. Jeremy pulled off the victory. Cale said it was great to get back to that kind of racing where he started years ago. (Thanks, Brian of Netcrafters, for the report).

Jayski reports Felix Sabates is in the process of choosing between Sterling Marlin and Ernie Irvan to replace Robby Gordon next season. Sources tell me it's Marlin.(hard to believe after the Sadaam comment Felix made). I hear Marlin has already signed the contract.

Jayski also reports Buckshot Jones and the #00 Pontiac BGN team will be sponsored by Bayer Asperin and Alka-Seltzer in 1998(RPM2Nite) and per a NASCAR online interview: Buckshot Jones plans to run up to 2 WC Cup events in 1997, 5-8 in 1998 and go full-time in 1999.

Jayski reports Family Channel has re-upped with Jack Roush for three years, meaning Ted Musgrave will likely keep his ride for next season.

Still enjoyin' the vacation.......... <grin>
