Mark Martin Wins the Winston 500 and a cool million!
DJ Winston Winston 500 & Winston No Bull 5

Dale Jarrett won the race and a $1,000,000 bonus for finishing in the top five in the previous No Bull 5 race-the Southern 500 at Darlington. This win got the #88 crew out of a slump they had recently been stuck in.

DJ beat second-place Jeff Gordon to the line by mere fractions of a second. Gordon was followed by teammate Terry Labonte who drafted with Gordon almost the whole day. Jimmy Spencer and Jeremy Mayfield, who recently became a blond, round out the drivers who will be eligible for next-year's No Bull 5 at Daytona.

Bobby Labonte, the brother of second-place finisher Terry Labonte, got diced back to the sixth position after seeing the white flag in second position. Mike Skinner, who led the most laps and drafted with race-winner Dale Jarrett most of the race, finished seventh. Dale Earnhardt, who got caught up in the big wreck that normally happens at restrictor-plate races, fixed his damage and ran in the top five only to have rear-end trouble. After getting caught up in the big wreck, Mark Martin finished thirty-fourth and is now 288 points behind Jeff Gordon. Ernie Irvan had to go to the hospital to be examined after being in the middle of the wreck.
