CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins Pastrana, the wife of X-Games star Travis Pastrana, won the charity race held before pole night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Better Half Dash pitted 12 wives and girlfriends of NASCAR drivers against each other in Bandolero cars in a 25-lap race.

The racing got competitive quickly with Adriene Pattie, the wife of Clint Bowyer crew chief Brian Pattie, flipping her car midway through the race. Her car had to be towed off the course, but Pattie was fine.

Pastrana received $10,000 for the charity of her choice.

Defending champion Jacquelyn Butler, the fiancee of NASCAR driver David Ragan, finished second.
