Bobby Labonte just missed out on his first Winston Cup victory of 2000 as he was narrowly defeated in a photo finish at the Cracker Barrel 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Labonte made a late race charge that ended up being an all out drag to the finish line. Dale Earnhardt, however, had the better of him by a couple of inches at the finish line. All is not lost for the Skip Barber trained Labonte as he remains atop the Winston Cup points table nearly 20 points ahead of his nearest rival.

Four other Skip Barber alumni filled out the Top-10. They were Steve Park 4th), Joe Nemechek (5th), Ward Burton (6th), and Jeff Gordon (9th).
