If Jimrnie Johnson is able to return to victory lane on June 1 at Dover International Speedway in the MB- NA Armed Forces Family 400 he will join the elite group of Winston Cup racers who have won three races in a row at the Monster Mile. Given the impressive fashion in which Johnson steered his No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet to victory this past weekend in The Winston all-star race, it is safe to say that the 27-year old Californian will be a pro- hibitive favorite to win at Dover. But he's got compa- ny. For example, his owner and teammate, Jeff Gor- don, has won four times at The Monster Mile, includ- ing a thoroughly dominating performance at the June race in 2001. If he wins for a fifth time at Dover, Gordon would join David Pearson in a tie for second for most career wins at Dover with five (Richard Pet- ty and Bobby Allison are tied for first with seven wins each). Of course, Roush Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing may have something to say about who conquers the one-mile concrete track on June 1. The Roush team can lean on the experience and savvy of Mark Mar- tin, who won races each year at Dover in 1997, '98 and '99 to pass along to youngsters like Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch. As if the two young guys needed any advice. Kenseth has posted two Busch Series victories and one runner-up Winston Cup fro- ish in his short career at Dover, while Busch won the first-ever Craftsman Truck Series race at Dover in 2000. Oh, by the way, Kenseth and Busch are run- ning first and third, respectively, in the current Win- ston Cup point standings. Gibbs Racing also features two drivers who have run very well at Dover in recent years and both seem on the verge of hitting hot streaks. Tony Stewart, the defending Winston Cup champion, always seems to run well at Dover and he swept the 2000 races at the Monster Mile. Meanwhile, Bobby Labonte looks like he is back in championship form, and he, too, has won at Dover (in June of 1999). And one would be remiss to not consider Dale Earnhardt, Jr. a prime candidate to take another victory at Dover. He is hot on the tail of Kenseth in the point standings and has been running very strongly all season. Dale. Jr. won at Dover in September of 1991. All these racers and the rest of the Winston Cup stars will shine on June 1. They will qualify on Fri- day, May 30, the same day that the Craftsman Truck Series takes center stage with the MBNA Armed Forces Family 200 race. On Saturday, May 31, the Busch Series stars hit the Monster Mile for the MB- NA Armed Forces Family 200. Tickets are on sale for all these races and may be ordered by calling 1-800- 441-7223. Tickets also may be purchased at the Dover International Speedway website at dover- speedway.com. Race names changed to To recognize fundraising efforts in support of fam- ilies of those individuals serving in the American armed forces, MBNA is changing the names of the three NASCAR races taking place at Dover Interna- tional Speedway, May 30 through June 1. The races will now be called the MBNA Armed Forces Family 400 (Winston Cup race on June 1), MBNA Armed Forces Family Truck 200 (Craftsman Truck Series race on May 30) and MBNA Armed Forces Family 200 (Busch Series race on May 31). MBNA is overseeing a national eight-week cam- paign to raise money for families of armed forces members. Families of all service branches that have lost a member during the recent invasion of Iraq or have faced financial hardship because of an extended deployment in the Gulf region will be provided assis- tance through the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. The Foundation's newly-established Armed Forces Family Scholarship and Assistance Fund (AFFSAF) will present scholarship trusts and honor the armed forces financial relief to eligible families. There are three methods for NASCAR fans to con- tribute. Through June, fans may seek out AFFSAF- logoed black contribution barrels at green MBNA booths at NASCAR Winston Cup events at Char- lotte, Dover, Brooklyn, and Sonoma. Also, fans may look for barrels at the stand-alone NASCAR Busch Series events at Gateway in Madison, Ilinois, Nazareth, Pa., and Nashville, Tenn. Secondly, checks payable to AFFSAF may be mailed to AFFSAF, PO Box 37, Mountain Lakes, NJ 07046. Also, pledges will be accepted on a new website link to be available at www.AFFSAF.org. "We actively support MBNA's efforts to honor the many armed forces families who mean so much to this country," said Denis McGlynn, president and CEO of Dover International Speedway. MBNA purchased 1,000 seats for the June 1 Win- ston Cup race to give to members of the armed forces and their families. Outdoors Woman program set If only the rain would go away. In between breaks in the clouds and rain, Cape Region anglers have been having great success with trout, tog and striper. Ac- cording to Bill's Sport Shop. Delaware Bay has been red hot with nice catches of tog at the walls and haystacks with Ron Guidry bring in a citation fish that tipped the scales at 8.29 pounds. Trout have also showed up in fair numbers and anglers using peelers are catching some nice sized fish. Broadkill has been producing some nice weakfish as Dan Carrigan will tell you. He landed a 31-inch, 9.64-pound trout that earned him a citation. Small blues can also be found ranging in the one- to three-pound range. Cass Hans limited out with fish up to five pounds using mackerel as bait off Lewes Beach. Stripers are in the area, but the bite isn't real strong, according to Bill's. Cliff Neal fished peeler crab at the Broadkill to entice a 14.9-pound striper to the beach that was 36 inches long. Slaughter Beach also was pro- ducing some big black drum with David Quigley hauling in a 90.5- pound whopper. His fishing part- ners also landed drum ranging from 35 to 81 pounds.
