BROOKLYN, MI (AUG. 16, 1998) Johnny Benson and his Roush Racing Cheerios Ford took the second provisional to start 38th for the DeVilbiss 400 on Sunday. When the green flag was waved Benson was ready to head to the front. Unfortunately, bad luck struck the Cheerios racing team right away. Benson began to complain about a popping noise in the engine. A fortunate caution came out which allowed Benson to come in several times so the team could find the problem. A cold plug was discovered and fixed. With the fast work of the Cheerios racing team Benson was able to get back on track only a half a lap down.

Benson finished in 34th place, six laps down to the leader.
