Got a couple E-Mails wanting an explanation of this new program by R J Reynolds, so here goes:

Starting with this weekend's event at Talladega, the Top-5 finishers will be eligible for a $1 Million payout at selected events. Here's the way it'll work:

If a driver who finishes in the Top-5 this weekend at 'Dega wins the Daytona 500, that driver will receive a $1M Bonus.

If a driver who finishes in the Top-5 at the Daytona 500 should win the Coca-Cola 600, that driver will receive a $1M Bonus.

If a driver who finishes in the Top-5 at the Coke 600 wins the Brickyard 400, that driver will receive a $1M Bonus.

If a driver who finishes in the Top-5 at the Brickyard 400 wins the Mountain Dew Southern 500, that driver will receive a $1M Bonus.

And finally, if a driver who finishes in the Top-5 at the Southern 500 wins the Winston 500 (the fall event at Talladega for 1998....the event names will swap next year), that driver will receive a $1M Bonus.

Basically, what this means is that 5 races next year will carry possible Bonus Payouts of $1M each from RJR. Instead of having one driver going for the Winston Million as in the past, we'll have 5 drivers battling for the big bucks.

The stakes get higher every year.....but that T. Wayne sure knows how to get your attention.

Feel free to E-Mail me if this still seems a little foggy <G>.
