Buckshot Jones Track Notes New Hampshire International Speedway May 8, 1999

"We had wanted that win for a long time and we knew going into the race that we had a great car. We got involved in that first lap accident, but the team worked fast and got me back on the track without losing a lap. It started out to be a tough day, but we were patient and it paid off."---Buckshot Jones

From Worst to First

Jones won the NASCAR Busch Series Gumout Long Life Formula 200 at New Hampshire International Speedway on May 9th of last year after a bumpy start to the race. As the green flag flew, several cars slowed down in front of Jones and the No. 00 was hit from behind. After thinking their day could be done, the team repaired what turned out to be only cosmetic damage to the car and Jones returned to the track in 40th position. Patience and perseverance paid off for Jones and he took the lead on lap 140. He was able to hold off Kevin LePage for the remainder of the race and took the checkered flag. Jones holds the record for gaining the most positions by a race winner at New Hampshire International Speedway.

Sweet Rewards

After winning the Gumout Long Life Formula 200 Jones informed his team that he was now the proud owner of a Harley Davidson. Earlier that same week, Jones had made a bet with his father and team owner, Billy Jones, that if he won a race that year, his father would give him a Harley Davidson.

Car Information

The No.00 Cheez-It Racing Pontiac the team is taking to Loudon this weekend is the same car Jones finished 12th with at the NASCAR Busch Series 320 at Nashville Speedway in April of this year.
