THE RACE: The Arndt & Herman Windows 200 is the 10th of 16 races on the 1999 Slim Jim All Pro Series, NASCAR Touring schedule. This is the first of two races that the series will run at Caraway in 1999. The two races will be run consecutively, although a month apart.

1998 REVIEW: The 1998 edition of this race was a nail biter to the very end as several late race cautions left the outcome in doubt until the checkered flag waved. Darlington, S.C.'s Hal Goodson ultimately won by holding off a determined Billy Bigley, Jr. by a mere 0.14 seconds. Steven Christian, Ron Young and Scott Kilby rounded out the top five. The race was run in one hour, 28 minutes and 19 seconds and Goodson's winning average speed was 66.596 mph. There were a total of eight cautions eating up 61 laps and there were five lead changes among six drivers. Eventual 1998 Slim Jim All Pro Series Champion Freddie Query established a new track record in Bud Pole qualifying with the bar now set at 16.481 seconds at an average speed of 99.387 mph. Eight drivers completed all 219 laps, that's right, 219 laps, and 20 of 29 starters were running when the checkered flag waved.

RECORDS Qual. Record: Freddie Query, Mooresville, N.C., Chevrolet, 16.481 secs., 99.387 mph, 8/8/98 Fastest Avg. Speed : Jeff Fultz, Cincinnati, Oh., Chevrolet, 1 hr., 20 mins., 27 secs., 8/10/96
