DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Just because Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the defending Busch Grand National champion doesn't mean he has a pre-ordained right to the pole for the NAPA Auto Parts 300 Saturday.That became clear, when Ken Schrader (189.865 mph) and Randy LaJoie (189.661) earned the front-row starting positions, and Earnhardt (187.891) had to be satisfied with 16th -- and was."This is a victory for us," Earnhardt said. "We've been struggling all week. I was hoping to get in the top 25, so we could begin working on our race setup instead of fooling with it for second-round qualifying."

Wallace was running a conservative race in 16th position, biding his time before coming into the pits for a chassis adjustment, when, on Lap 158, he and Bobby Hamilton crashed in the fourth turn.

LOUDON, N.H. - With the Winston Cup Series headed back to Pocono Raceway next week, NASCAR's research and development team is working to find a solution to rear-impact fires such as the ones that Dale Jarrett and Ken Schrader experienced there last month. Gary Nelson, NASCAR's managing director of competition, said he'd like to be able to introduce some safety-related changes before next week, but that isn't likely to happen. "You never say never, but I really can't say there's something coming," he said.
