900 Club not far off for Ricky Rudd - USA - Congratulations are in order for Kyle Petty, who made his 800th Cup start Sunday at Indianapolis. That's a lot of trips around the track. Only five other drivers have started at least 800 Cup races.

But in the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard, Petty was third fiddle to Ricky Rudd's 895th start and Terry Labonte's 850th.

Petty was 14 on March 2, 1975, when the 18-year-old Rudd finished 11th in his first Cup start, the Carolina 500 at North Carolina Motor Speedway in Rockingham. Three other drivers in that race are also in the 800 club: Richard Petty (1,185), Dave Marcis (883) and Darrell Waltrip (809).

If all goes well, Rudd's 900th start will come September 2 at California Speedway.

"To me, it's a number," Rudd said. "One day it'll be nice to look back. I'm kind of proud that we're No. 2 on the list of all-time starts, but I'm not getting caught up in the actual number."
