BUSCH: Buckshot Jones Milwaukee Track Notes

"Nothing has yet to compare to my win at Milwaukee. To win a Busch Series race is great, but to do it where my Busch Grand National career started is even better." --Buckshot Jones, driver of the No. 00 Cheez-It Chevrolet Buckshot...

"Nothing has yet to compare to my win at Milwaukee. To win a Busch Series race is great, but to do it where my Busch Grand National career started is even better."
--Buckshot Jones, driver of the No. 00 Cheez-It Chevrolet

The joint promotion between Cheez-It Snacks and Marvel Enterprises, Inc., will also feature "The Spider-Man Amazing Instant Win Game"- Grand Prize winners will be drawn into an actual Spider-Man comic. See specially marked packages of Cheez-It Crackers, available in stores nationally July through August. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Subject to complete official rules. Game ends 11/02/00.

The team will be bringing the same Chevrolet Monte Carlo used at New Hampshire International Speedway in May where Buckshot led 60 laps before falling just short at the end.

Buckshot Jones will sign autographs for the general public during the 6th annual 'NASCAR Night at the All Star McDonald's' on Friday, June 30, from 6-7 p.m. The McDonald's restaurant is located at the corner of 76th St. and Rawson Ave. in Milwaukee.

Buckshot Remembers His First Win...
"Mike McLaughlin caught me on the last corner and almost beat me. During the last pit stop we didn't have enough time to clean the windshield, so I never saw the checkered flag fall. I thought I still had one lap to go. I didn't know I'd won the race until my team told me on the radio."
