n.— «“Today’s bump-drafting ain’t like it used to be.” [ Dale] Earnhardt [Jr.]said. “It ain’t your daddy’s bump-drafting. You use to give a bump here, give a bump there, and push the guy in front of you past another car. Now it’s more like ‘slam-drafting’. At Talladega we hit each other hard. It feels like being hit by a sledgehammer. The car we’re taking this weekend had to have a whole new rear clip put on it, because it was so banged up from the last plate race.”» —“Chase for the Nascar Nextel Cup News & Notes” in Talledega, Al. Cup Scene Daily Sept. 28, 2005.
