This race sees a major shakeup in the standings. Both Robby Gordon Motorsports cars have qualified in the top 3, while Hendrick ringer Adrian Fernandez puts the #5 in the top 5. Jamie McMurray qualifies the 2nd Ganassi Dodge in the top 10. Robert Yates Racing, Curb Agajanian, and DCT's hopes of making the top 30 continue to dwindle. Scott Gaylord ALMOST gave Jimmy Means his first start of the year, while Johnny Sauter luckily can rely on the owners points rented from Jay Robinson, and hopefully they can get a decent result. The last qualifying news is Kim Crosby and Shawna Robinson make their first starts of the year.

Other rumors circulating around have NEMCO Motorsports looking at selling off their owners points. The team rumored to obtain them is GIC-Mixon Motorsports, who has struggled to qualify for races with Rookie Kim Crosby. This deal would see GIC-Mixon obtain the #7 and the owners points associated. GIC Also has been looking at a veteran driver to pilot the #7 if the deal goes through, to help evaluate the team and try and keep them inside the top 30. Kim Crosby and the #24 would continue to operate on a part time basis.

Well, no photos because A. lack of memory, and B. the race was an utter s**tshow. We had a good few 16-20 opening laps,m but after the first caution, everybody started to die in the first 3 corners, we had cars hitting other cars, driving off the track, cutting the course and merging into the pack. GOing 3-4 wide into the corner, spinning of each others noses, people cars driving under cars, David Stremme forcing Boris Said into the pit wall after blowing a motor, Ruben Garcia Nova was rolled over in turn 3 maikng it 2 weeks in a row that the MacDonald #72 been up on its lid, Tony Raines made a circut of the track at 35 mile per hour, Randy Lajoie and Boris Said drove off the track on the run down to turn 1, and in the end, Jamie McMurray won the race in a second Chip Ganassi Racing Dodge.
Lesson Learned: Test your tracks before you run them!

TPG News Report:
After a dismal start to the season, Robert Yates has revamped his Busch Series operation, and hopes to build a strong momentum going forward (in increased RYR to tier 1 as I could not stand them DNQing when they have 2 veteran cup stars and are one of the top cup organizations.

GIC-Mixon Motorsports has bought out the owners points of the #7 NEMCO Motorsports Chevy, and will field the car for the rest of the season. Mark Green has been signed on as the full time driver going forward, while Kim Cosby will attempt a limited schedule in the #24.

The last noteworthy news is that Eric Norris has been released from MacDonald Motorsports, Geoffery Bodine will replace him for the remainder of the season.
