He then went from the back of the 36 car field to the front, only to finish second to Elliott Sadler. Not bad for someone driving with his left hand in a cast.
But this story is far from finished, because three hours after the race's end, NASCAR disqualified Sadler's car for having an illegal engine. The emotional rollercoaster finally came to a stop with a staged victory lane celebration. Tony McGuire was suddenly $25 thousand dollars richer. ((TONY MCGUIRE/DEFENDING TACO BELL 300 CHAMPION:))
