Jimmie Johnson started first and finished first in segment two of the Winston and brought home $50,000. after the 30 lap dash.

The race saw weird circumstance, flying helmets, door banging, and strange pit road penalties.

Elliott Sadler lost control of his car, bringing out the first caution. As Sadler was assisted by track workers he waited for the field to drive by and threw his helmet at either Kevin Harvick or Ryan Newman.

Also during the yellow flag Harvick dove to the bottom of the track and slammed the side of Newman's right side for reasons unknown.

Last year's Winston winner Jeff Gordon went to the pits and ended up with a penalty after the handle of the window squeegee broke. As Gordon drove away in the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevy, the squeegee fell off of the car, outside of the pit box. NASCAR penalized the team for losing equipment out of the pit box.

Missing the top 10 were: Jeff Gordon, Michael Waltrip, Ricky Rudd, Joe Nemechek, Terry Labonte, Bobby Labonte, Jeremy Mayfield, Mark Martin, Elliott Sadler, and Jeff Burton.
