An exciting race tonight at the .725 mile track as the Busch cars went at it in the Autolite/Fram 250. Great balls of fire was appropriate when Ron Hornaday's Napa Auotoparts Chevrolet burst into flames on the seventh caution with 80 laps to go.
Jeff Burton would take the checkered flag in his third Busch win of the season on what has turned out to be a sold weekend for him.
