Jeremy Mayfield started on the pole, led every lap and won a spot in the big money event, the Winston. The win gives Mayfield his second career Winston Open event win.

Mayfield was excited about his chance in the Winston. "I'm really happy with it. The car is great. I've never been in a car that good here."

Rookie Ryan Newman held the second spot for most of the race, until veteran Ken Schrader passed him with a late race charge.

Newman's fellow rookie competitor, Carl Long, brought out the one and only caution 10 laps into the 30 lap shootout after he lost control of his car, spun and hit the wall.
