Sunday Nov. 6th

revised starting time of 2:50 p.m. Central Time for Sunday's Dickies 500  will allow for more NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series action under the lights. Race fans attending the Dickies 500 race week events at Texas Motor Speedway will have up-close views of all the action.  A total of 6 big screens will bring fans closer to the on-track racing and the crucial pit stops.

FORT WORTH BURN BAN – Due to a City of Fort Worth burn ban being in effect, no open fires in the campgrounds will be permitted. Barbeques and smokers are still allowed but no open campfire-style burns. The Fort Worth Police Department and Fort Worth Fire Department will be patrolling and enforcing the ban.

    TICKET SCALPING ENFORCEMENT– Fans be aware that there is a Fort Worth city ordinance prohibiting the sale or offer of sale of race tickets, at any price including face or below face value, on TMS grounds. The ordinance will be enforced by Fort Worth police.

    The crew chiefs of RCR Chevrolets No. 31 and No.07 will trade positions for the final two races of 2005

    THE BATTLE FOR 11th PLACE

    As the Chase progresses, so does the race for 11th-place, a spot worth over $1 million as a bonus from the season-ending point fund. The goal remains the same – winning races – and so does the incentive – to excel and improve one’s position in the standings. Here’s a look at drivers in spots 11 through 15 entering race No. 34 at Texas Motor Speedway:

    •  11th place – Jamie McMurray (No. 42 Texaco/Havoline Dodge), currently controls that position. He retained the spot for a second consecutive week following a sixth-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
