Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte, a pair of Cup champions, are among the first-year eligible nominees for the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
There's been a "For Sale" sign outside of Phoenix Racing for some time now and there seems to be several interested buyers.
"I told (my owner) this is my last 500, and I thought it would (stink) not to make the race," Labonte said. "Thank goodness we did. Unfortunately some other guys had problems. It's the first time I've ever had to go through that."
Labonte, who insists his 32nd "Great American Race" will be his last, was running 17th with about three laps to go in a qualifying race Thursday night and looked like he would miss the 500 for the first time since 2010.
