Personal notes: Got his nickname after falling on a coffee table. His grandfather said he was ''tough as buckshot.'' ... Graduated with a degree in business management from the University of Georgia ... His 12th-place finish last week at Atlanta was the best since his second career start, an eighth-place finish in 1998 at Dover, Del. ... Hobbies are hunting, fishing and playing the stock market.... Got on stage during a Tracy Byrd concert to ask his girlfriend, Jina, to marry him. She accepted.
