Las Vegas, Dale Jr. news and more....

Dale Jr. won his first poll since 2002 today at the Pocono racetrack.  He started his first qualifying attempt and then a brief shower showed up ending his first attempt.  NASCAR rules let him put on fresh set of tires and cool down the engine before letting him back out on the track.  His poll speed was 169.975 MPH.

Before the rain delay the Busch brothers were all on the front row.

Mike Helton says that any changes to qualifying are going to be announced by the end of the month.

The Las Vegas race is going to be one week earlier in 2008. This helps plugs the hole the FOX network wanted.

The DEI/Ginn Racing merger has cost 124 people their jobs.
