Tough Break For Little In Southwest Series

NASCAR Winston Cup driver Chad Little just wanted to race, but his car wasn't up to it.

Little, making his second ever start in the NASCAR Southwest Series, left the Snap-on Tools 200 at Sears Point Raceway on the second lap after his No. 91 car developed brake problems.

"You can't race very many race tracks without brakes, and I think a road course is one of those places, as far as I know, where brakes are very important," said Little, a former Winston West Series champion. "It's very unfortunate for and Speedway Children's Charities."

The crew got the car repaired and returned it to the race later.

Little, who used a provisional to get into Sunday's Winston Cup event at the track, wanted to make the most of his double duty this weekend.

"I thought I would get some lap time, but I think the whole deal is a little more preparation and we would've been right there," he said. "We'll get regrouped and have a better effort the next time we try to run a Nascar Southwest Series race."
