EVENT REVIEW: Rookie of the Year contender Zach Brewer surprised everyone at Bristol Motor Speedway in 1999 when he won from a backstretch pitting spot in only his fifth series start. Making his win even more spectacular was the fact that he started in 30th position of the 30 car field after using a provisional starting spot. 1999 Goody's Dash Series, NASCAR Touring National Champion Robert Huffman started the race from the pole position and was looking for his fourth straight series win. Huffman was strong but pitted just after the 100-lap mark for a mandatory fuel stop. Brewer inherited the lead at this point and led for the next 25 laps. Over the final 25 laps, Brandon Head, Huffman, and Brewer challenged each other for the lead. Head took the point and appeared to be in position for the win until Brewer made a daring three-wide pass in turn one with just two-and-a-half laps from the checkered flag to record his first and only career win.
