"DW Out of Provisionals Until Martinsville..."

That's what they were saying about ol' DW, since he dropped out of the
top 25. After taking 4 previous champ's provisionals and one regular
provisional, he's had a gritty second-day qualifying run at Texas when
he absolutely had to make it on time to make the race, and then two
first-round q-fying runs at Bristol and Martinsville.

Now, does DW have a provisional to use for Talladega? I'd be willing
to bet that Carter/Haas's plate program still isn't up to speed and I
have my doubts about DW making the field on time. Did DW get another
batch of provisionals after Martinsville, even though he's still not
in the top 25? Does he get another set of 4 previous champ's
provisionals?

In short, what's DW's provisional status for this weekend? I have a
feeling he'll need one to make the show. :-(

Yes, he has a provisional, but he only got one.  He won't get another one until
he has tried to qualify for 8 more races-after Sears Point.  If he has to use
it this weekend at Talladega it will be a long haul til Sears Point.
