Buckshot Jones Track Notes Michigan Speedway

"Michigan Speedway was the first track we competed on that was over a mile long. It's a wide track with a lot of room to race and pass and it can be very forgiving when you need it to be. Fuel mileage is always a big concern. We've gambled once before and it paid off so hopefully we've learned enough from our experiences to have a shot at winning." -- Buckshot Jones, Driver No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac NASCAR Busch Series Results - Michigan Speedway Date St Fin LC/TL Status $Won 8/98 35 14 99/100 Running 10,425 8/97 10 5 100/100 Running 15,220 8/96 33 27 98/100 Running 6,220 8/95 14 16 98/100 Running 3,720

* First Time Buckshot Jones made his first superspeedway start at Michigan Speedway on August 19, 1995. Jones qualified 14th for the 1995 Detroit Gasket 200 and went on to finish 16th in only his fourth career Busch Grand National start.

* More Buckshot History Not only is Michigan Speedway the site of Buckshot Jones' first superspeedway start, but he also earned his first top-five superspeedway finish at the track. In the 1997 Detroit Gasket 200, Jones gambled on fuel mileage to cross the stripe in fifth position. * No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac The No.00 Cheez-It team is fielding a brand new Pontiac this weekend in the Napa 200. The Buckshot Racing team hopes to christen the new No.00 Pontiac with a trip to Victory Lane.
