As Jeff Burton pulled away the other cars were racing for position Mark Martin was running 10-th just ahead of Steve Park after 118 laps.
Dale Jarrett was chasing his teammate Ricky Rudd and he would pass Rudd on lap 123.
But nobody was catching Burton he had over a second lead and he was the leader at the halfway mark of the race.
Points leader Bobby Labonte would make a run at Jeff but he could only make it to second place after 187 laps.
Then on lap 216 Stacy Compton gets loose in a pack of cars and wrecks collecting Jeremy Mayfield, Kevin Lepage and a couple of other cars.
Another crash that started when Mark Martin gets into the back of Jerry Nadeau brought out the red flag with 10 laps to go. Rick Mast and Little E were also involved.
The caution flew again with 3 laps to go and Jeff Burton takes the checkered flag under caution to win the Dura Lube 300 becoming the second driver to lead from start to finish on a super speedway.
