Steve Park, who has seemingly been on the verge of losing his job as driver of Dale Earnhardt Inc.'s No. 1 Pennzoil Chevrolet because of poor performances this year, made a strong statement toward saving his seat Friday by winning the pole for Sunday's Auto Club 500. Park's qualifying speed of 186.838 mph at California Speedway was the best of 45 Winston Cup drivers who made two-lap qualifying efforts. It was a distinct surprise to the NASCAR nation.

The NASCAR community got what it wanted more than anything else in the world here Monday--no, make that the thing it wanted second most. What everybody wanted most, of course, was Dale Earnhardt back. But that couldn't be. The next-best thing was a competitive, clean race, free of accidents and controversy, and won by one of Dale Earnhardt's Chevies.
