This was the kind of day it was for Dale Jarrett. D-J misses the entrance to his pit stall, and clips his jackman John Bryan who was taken to a hospital for observation and later released.
A little later at lap 47, John Andretti goes on a spin-o-rama in the 81 machine after being nudged in the rear. Andretti's hard luck season continues.
With less than 15 laps to go, big trouble--a seven car crashfest takes out Terry Labonte, Ricky Rudd, and Jimmie Johnson among others.
In the end, Harvick won the war of attrition to take the checkered flag winning his first race of the season
