Notes: Road racing is a skill that only a few seem to like, which is why some car owners are bringing in road racers as ringers. Boris Said, Jerry Nadeau and Ron Fellows will drive for Jasper Motorsports, Petty Enterprises and Joe Nemechek Racing, respectively. ... Chevrolet has won eight of the past nine road course races and Pontiac has won the other.
... Sears Point is a twisting road course that rewards track position and an ability to save the transmission and brakes until the final 50 miles.
