(Salisbury N.C) The DNQ Cup & Busch Series chase fields have been set. The Busch Classic had plenty of action...... almost too much action. However , Austin Yarbrough was able to take Knopf 3 wide with a lap car to make the race wining move. After the race both Knopf and Yarbrough's engines were claimed. Jake Owings claiming Jamie Knopf and John Jarrell claiming Austin Yarbrough. "Its part of the deal Yarbrough said, 'When the clones first came out we would sell about 1 a week." This is the first time in DNQ history that a drivers engine has been claimed e series promoter thought this was good for the series. "This is good for the series, we know what goes on with these engines and they are within all the legal numbers, but this is a way to make people think twice before they send their engines off". Besides all of the action in the race, the 8 drivers in the Busch and Cup Series Chases were determined by points
