He amazingly hung on to win.
For his efforts he got $102 thousand dollars and a snoot full of oxygen. He now has at least one win in 16 straight seasons. ((RICKY RUDD/NAPA 500 WINNER:))
While most of the drivers hung in there, many of the 81 thousand fans in attendance had to run for cover.
The oppresive heat burnt backs and sent most back to the concession stands in search of more fluids.
It was even nuttier at times on the track as wheels rolled, tires blew, and the Winston car what else but smoked.
Others spun and still more smoked, but the top two contenders for the title managed to hang on.
Jeff Gordon finished second with Mark Martin third. Gordon leads by 199 points and needs only to finish fifth or better in the final 6 events to win the title. ((JEFF GORDON/LEADS MARTIN BY 199 POINTS:)) ((JACK ROUSH/MARTIN'S CAR OWNER:))
The circuit heads to Charlotte this week, and keep in mind Gordon has never won a race in the months of October and November.))
