NASCAR Winston Cup North Carolina Motor Speedway October 22, 1995 Track Length 1.017 mile Winston Cup Race # 29

In a race that will be talked about for a long time, Ward Burton left little doubt that he had the car to beat, regardless of what went on off the track. For a complete rundown of the AC DELCO 400, including a complete look at the "lugnut affair", race reports, driver quotes, driver points and a daily recap of the events at North Carolina Motor Speedway see http://www.io.org/~raceweb/news1014.html.

Race Winner Ward Burton on his first win: "It was unbelievable. I'm just tickled to be a part of this team. Bill Davis has done what it takes for me to run that good. I'm just glad to be a part of it.

"I was just looking at the scoreboard and I thought the 10 car was on the lead lap. As far as I knew he was. I saw Rusty get around him a couple of laps before and I knew unless I made a mistake he couldn't catch me. The car was good just about all day on short runs, so that 10 lap sprint was just about perfect for us.
