Buckshot Jones Track Notes Pikes Peak International Raceway

"I'm really looking forward to returning to Pikes Peak. Last year, I was able to lead some laps and stay up near the front for most of the race. But, I didn't finish where I would have liked. The entire No.00 Cheez-It® team feels good about our chances this time around. We are going to take what we learned last year and hopefully get our first win of the season this weekend." -- Buckshot Jones, Driver No.00 Cheez-It®Pontiac NASCAR Busch Series Results - Pikes Peak International Raceway

* Front Runner By leading from lap 83 to lap 151, for a total of 69 laps in the inaugural Pikes Peak Busch Grand National event, Jones earned the first Gatorade Front Runner Award presented at the speedway. Out of seven race leaders in Busch Series competition at PPIR, Jones is ranked second in total laps led.

* No.00 Cheez-It® Pontiac The No.00 Cheez-It® team is fielding the same Pontiac that Larry Pearson piloted in South Boston six weeks ago. Pearson started the Textilease/Medique 300 in 32nd position, but moved up to the 11th spot by lap 201. Unfortunately, Pearson was collected in an accident on lap 238, resulting in a broken transmission. Unable to repair the damages, the No.00 team was forced to settle for a 25th place finish.

* "Birthday" Jones Buckshot Jones is celebrating his 29th birthday on Friday, July 23. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BUCKSHOT!!
