Tri-Oval Talk:


Close racing as the top 3 were separated by just 13 pieces of track. In a deal just finalized over the weekend Mark Williams will now be driving Cup cars this season prepared by Billy Decker. Rumor also going around the pits is that the beautiful purple Cup body will see some racing action some time during this season. Stay Tuned. Following the next Cup event ( Oct. 21 ) IROC racing will return, a brief 4 race season, 4 different groups of cars with 4 different people preparing the cars. The TYCO Pan Chassis will start the season with Billy Decker prepping the cars.
