    Weatherly mis-judged the stopping distance, and his rental car slid into the motel’s pool. Joe stood in wet triumph next to the pool taking a victory drink from his newly-won bottle of “CC.”

    also found it mentioned in this book:
    Lost Revolutions: The South in the 1950s
    in fast and furious chapter, page 115

    Mark Martin.
    I'm guessing you mean "won" when you say "ran" the fastest 500 mile race.
    It was a Talladega race that went caution free. I'm thinking it was 94 or 95.

    pudge When Nothing Goes Right....Go Left

    you are correct

    What makes you say that? I back read the thread a few pages and didn't see any reference to Pablo.
    Mark Martin won a Talladega race in 94 or 95 that went caution free. Because it was caution free it had the fastest average time for a 500 mile race making it the fastest 500 mile race to date for the Cup series.

    Next question... What were the two tire companies that provided tires to the Cup series in 1994?

    Give me a day or so to come up with somethin
     
  24. Backtracking a little, Juans average speed at Pocono was 202mph, not 221. His pole speed was 223mph.

    I cant think of anything good right now so this should be pretty simple...

    What is the best average finish in the chase? By who?
     
  26. JEB

    JEB Guest

    I'll guess the obvious...

    Jimmie?
     
  27. SlicedBread22

    SlicedBread22 #TeamJL

    Nope
     
  28. SlicedBread22

    SlicedBread22 #TeamJL

    I want to clarify... Im looking for average finish in one chase. Not overall.
     
  29. JEB

    JEB Guest

    Second guess is Stewart.
     
  30. SlicedBread22

    SlicedBread22 #TeamJL

    Nope
     
  31. Ok so best average finish of one chase. I would think that driver would win the championship & since Stewart & Jimmie have already been mentioned that only leaves 2 choices & mine is Kurt Busch. If its not him then we all know the answer.
     
  32. SlicedBread22

    SlicedBread22 #TeamJL

    Not Kurt

    Pretty basic one: Which active crew chief has the 2nd-most career Cup victories after Chad Knaus?
