After win, Dario Franchitti starts 28th
By Richard Durrett
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Dario Franchitti's celebration after winning the first of the Firestone Twin 275s was brief before he strolled to the stage on the fronstretch to pick his spot for Race 2.
Franchitti and teammate Tony Dixon were the last ones to pick with two tires left. Dixon drew No. 18, so that left No. 28 to Franchitti.
He knows it won't be easy to pass all those cars to the front, but he said he would give it a go.
